In an era where love is hard to find and relationships are fleeting, MY LOVE DON’T CROSS THAT RIVER reminds us of how remarkable life-long companionship actually is.
The twilight days of lovebirds Byong-man Jo and Gye-Yeul Kang are captured by fly-on-the-wall director Moyoung Jin, in an unforgettable story of true love that transcends both generations and cultures. After 76 years of companionship, the couple remains inseparable; 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 hands, and their tender moments reveal simple acts of affection – from a good-natured leaf fight to a gentle caress of the cheek.
