Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom

I took a break from DVDs and watched the Star Trek episode, called “The Ultimate Computer,” about the computer taking over the Enterprise.  These days, with self-driving cars, the idea of a computer controlling a spaceship is not out of the question.  I watched “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring.”  It was a Korean film that was pretty interesting, with a floating Buddhist monastery and an old monk.  We see the monk teaching an important lesson to the young boy we see growing up.  There are some humorous moments.  The child turns into an adolescent who falls in love with a girl and leaves to pursue her.  The setting looked quite beautiful, but it didn’t come across as well as it could have with the not-so-great image quality of the DVD.  This is a movie that could be improved with Blu-ray high definition.  Only the two policemen have names in this story.  The film covers a good range of emotions for one that is placed in a quiet setting.  We see a succession of animals in the picture, which are Buddhist symbols.  I thought this was quite a strong film.  It was good to see a meaningful film from an Asian director.  It was more meaningful and memorable than something like “Ten.”
