My Love Don’t Cross That River

“100-year old Lovebirds” 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 Mo-Young 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.

""My Love, Don't Cross That River" is a moving tribute to the beauties and mysteries of life and death, an exploration of how growing old gives the gift of time, but there's never enough."

Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

"The director doesn't explicitly tell us how much time passes; the universal challenges of losing a loved one fit into a fleet 86 minutes in a way that feels unforced."

Abbey Bender, Village Voice

"There is visual poetry in Jin Mo-young's documentary, "My Love, Don't Cross That River," and unblinking observation as well."

Andy Webster, New York Times
