I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (Saibogujiman kwenchana)
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 stylistically playful filmmakers working today.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Witty, playful, romantic, tragic, Park Chan-wook's I'm a Cyborg, but That's OK is a whole chocolate box of emotions in a highly decorative but absolutely characteristic wrapping."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Playful lightweight romantic psychodrama set at a mental institution."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It's mental but charming, so that's OK."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"...strikes a balance between blithely endorsing the delusions of its mentally ill characters and comically demonizing them."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"Park's casting of Korean pop star Rain is as subversive as if he had cast a Beatles-era Paul McCartney as a serial killer in a slasher movie, but still instructed him to underplay his charms."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"A confusing mess of a movie that lacks the marvellously sharp structure and cohesion of his previous efforts."
‑ Chris Tilly, IGN Movies UK
"It's almost as if the peculiar I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK was lurking beneath the surface of his psyche and needed to come out before Park could continue down his chosen path. It's not exactly brilliant or hilarious, but at least it's honest."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"allokoti erotiki komenti, glykia kai sygkinitiki se simeio ligomatos, kai arketa asteia gia na hahanizeis san palabos se oli tin eksantlitiki tis diarkeia"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"This uncategorisable asylum-set ensemble dramedy backs up its extraordinary visual effects with a lot of heart."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
