Comments: Sadness is seldom more unrelenting than on ONE FINE SPRING DAY, a film with no plot and very little dialog. I was riveted by the intelligence and realism depicted on screen, knowing that the film plays differently depending on the viewers own experience. Masterfully done!

It may be a cliché, but you really get what you bring to this film. Somehow I attribute that to Hur's emotional intelligence. The film is unrelentingly sad, for me, because the disintegration is inexplicable, both because there is no reason, and because the reasons are such a complex web of every single inconsequential moment, it's overwhelming.

Summary: Sound engineer Sang Woo meets local DJ Eun Soo on a recording trip in the quest for nature’s voice. They succeed in capturing various sensual sounds as well as each other’s tenderness. Their love flourishes as spring comes along, but Sang Woo’s ever intensifying passion often reminds Eun Soo of her tragic past. She knows only too well how passion can vanish like a sound: how love always surrenders to its expiry…
