I'm A Cyborg, the latest film from the Korean director Park Chan-wook, is a madcap fantasy, screwball romance.
Young-goon is admitted to a mental institution, believing herself a cyborg, she charges herself with a transistor radio. Il-soon a fellow inmate steals the other inmates' personality traits and believes he is fading and will one day turn into a dot. When Young-goon refuses to eat, Il-soon decides it's his job to get her on her feet again. This charming, tender and visually arresting film cements Park Chan-wook's reputation as one of the most gifted and playful filmmakers working today.
An offbeat romantic comedy, I'm A Cyborg is a touching and highly inventive film from one of Korea's best known director's Park Chan-wook. This charming, tender, visually arresting film won the Alfred Bauer Prize for a work of particular innovation at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival.
