"Byong-man Jo and Gye-Yeul Kang have been inseparable companions for the past 76 years. Living in their small home by the river, they wear traditional Korean clothes, go shopping at the local market, have picnics with neighbors, and enjoy dance parties. Every night they go to sleep holding each other's hands. Observing this fragile couple for 15 months, director Moyoung Jin acts as a fly-on-the-wall, capturing their twilight days with tender moments that reveal simple acts of affection - from a good-natured leaf fight to a gentle caress of the cheek. A blockbuster in its native Korea, where it would go on to become the country's biggest independent film of all time, "My love, don't cross that river" presents an unforgettable story of true love that transcends both generations and cultures." --

Calm yet powerful. True love can exist in any form, anywhere. Purely adorable.

When my husband and I were dating (long before marriage), he had said to me once: (saw an old couple holding hands, walking in front of us) "I want to grow old with you and hold your hands like them."
This documentary reminded me of that time. What a lovely 86minutes with heart-warming music that makes the story somewhat like a fairy tale.

This is a beautiful, moving and tender portrait of what marital love should look like! Well worth viewing!

A highly unlikely film. A (relatively) short documentary dealing with an aging Korean couple. Could have been sickly sweet, but there is enough real-life trouble to keep it above that. I quite enjoyed it. Probably could be used as a teaching tool about growing old and dying.
