It's almost as if the images and sounds most of us are constantly bombarded with only serve to distract from a primal, tactile experience of the world.

Gentle, simply told love stories are as rare in documentaries these days as they are in narrative film. That alone makes Yi Seung-jun's "Planet of Snail" a standout.

With little story to speak of, Planet Of Snail is more of an experiential piece, closing in on the pleasure and wonder with which Young-chan takes in details like rain falling outside the window and the bark of a tree.

Even with the heaviness of some of its subject matter, the doc remains limpid and unsentimental until the very end, in keeping with its subject.

Neither the subject nor director ask for sympathy; what emerges is a nuanced hymn to the human spirit that still saddens, even when it inspires.
