Park Chan-Wook repels his conventional themes of revenge, murder and death to create a quirky rom-com set in a mental hospital. Glowing with a rainbow palette and enchanting score, Cyborg is camp, beautiful and bittersweet. Original on so many levels, its one of Chan-Wook most accessible, if not entirely representative, gems.

There's nothing that's ever completely straightforward about a Park film, even this absurd comedy (or off-kilter tragedy if you prefer) isn't as simple as it seems at first. A young woman being institutionalized for thinking that she's a cyborg sets the stage for Park's usual quirkiness, but surprisingly enough there are moments that are appropriately heavy, tender, perhaps even somewhat romantic. The main criticism that I have with all of Park's work is that the editing could be tighter.

Very close to being Park's best, in fact, the first 30 minutes or so are nothing short of perfection. A wonderful mix of sweetness and eccentricity, while also being a welcome break from this director's usual business (though, he does sneak his sympathy theme in).

Very beautiful film that ultimately lacks substance. Best scene: The "superhero" preparing to repair the "robot".

Creative, unexpected and imaginative - a bit long (especially in the 2nd half) - but well worth watching.

The premise is wonderful, the execution less so. It is quite funny and, in its own strange way, it does deliver in the romance aspect (in fact it is really, really sweet) but at times it is almost too cloying in its strangeness and the mix of styles, tones and content here never gels completely. It feels like a bit of a mess, and at times it is hard to know quite what Park is getting at or intending, but it is a solidly amusing mess and I quite enjoyed it.

The rare movie that can use mental illness as a backdrop to comedy without being cruel or exploitative. I'm a Cyborg But That's OK challenges us on our ideas regarding mental illness, asks questions about whether we have a right to our own reality -- even when that reality is a harmful delusion -- and shows that love sometimes comes in extraordinary forms.

Quirky has never been so accurate for a film, and while it can get overly quirky, it mostly remains in the realm of happily elicited smiles and hearty chucking. Plus, beyond the quirk, it's sweet, touching, and highly imaginative. Simply a lot of fun.

Central to the movie is its message that understanding one another and the importance of communication, and throughout all the silliness, this is executed wonderfully. When handling mental illness, a level of respect should be used, but "I'm a Cyborg" has too much fun and heart to possibly be offensive, and that's just OK.

There's a lot of humour at the expense of mental illness, which I found distasteful, but if you stick with it a sweet little love story eventually emerges.

Yes the concept sounds cute. For a half hour I'm a Cyborg, But That's Okay even feels cute, but the film's devotion to setting building over plot can't sustain it due to the strangling nature of the schizophrenic hospital's culture. Deciphering the meaning of many scenes is a waste, because when you do it never pays off much. So the empathy tower that Chan-wook attempts to build keeps crumbling. Beautiful to look at as always, but mostly a babbling bore.

Very nice korean film in the line of one flew over the coocook's nest. Charming also, as the characters develop. With great absurd elements.
