The film is divided into five segments (the five seasons of the title), each segment depicting a different stage in the life of a Buddhist monk (each segment is roughly ten to twenty years apart, and is physically in the middle of its titular season). Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
This was a movie that showcased the beauty of life in all it's stages, what the world can show you if you only watch and listen, and how harmonious it can be. This is not a fast paced film, nor is it filled with alot of dialogue. However, 10 years later I still remember this film fondly and look forward to watching it again.
This film may seem lengthy and quite slow, however if you take the time to fit the puzzle pieces together, you will be able to see how each stage of life is quite important for the main character and how the Master assists him with his difficulties to find inner peace.
Mainly, this story is about the life of a novice Buddhist monk and his old teacher where one or two of them goes through the five seasons within the film.
The acting was amazingly well done and the tradition music was greatly portrayed on how each scene flows to the next.
I highly recommend this film to people who have patience, great appreciation to nature, and religion, and those who enjoy learning the lessons of life.
