"Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ... and Spring"

Finally got to watch the movie today. My older son watched about half with me before I gave him an out and he pronounced it "pretty boring." I watched the rest.

Beautiful photography, a bit studied in its silences, but redolent and quietly touching. It's nice to see a movie once in a while which allows less to be more and when simplicities can be enough. I sort of wondered what anyone who allowed less to be more and simplicity to be enough would think of it. Maybe, like my son, s/he might find it "pretty boring."

I'll never know.
