We gave it an A-

A haunting Buddhist drama from South Korea in which aggression is as much a part of existence as breathing. A tiny monastery floats on a tranquil lake. The old monk (Oh Young-Soo) who lives there has a young apprentice; his education becomes a moving study of transcendence in everyday life.
