Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: Korean ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), Korean ( Dolby Surround ), English ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Cast/Crew Interview(s), Interactive Menu, Making Of, Music Video, Production Notes, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: While working in a radio assembly factory, Cha Young-goon (Su-jeong Lim) loses touch with reality, opens her wrist with a knife, inserts a power-cord and plugs herself into a wall outlet. As this scene unfolds we are brought up-to-date on her story with rapid cuts to her mother's interview with a psychiatric hospital doctor. Naturally the doctor is trying to determine the roots of Young-goon's psychosis, but the interview with Mom hints that this may be a family problem; Mom seems none too stable herself. Back in the factory Young-goon is lying on the floor, still in her chair, and we can see from her right foot that the shock has brought her inner battery up to full strength. Her toes light up to show her state of charge. As all of this is going on we see production credits as circuit board labels, uniform name tags, and other text scattered around the film.The opening credits covered we then see Young-goon being wheeled around the hospital by what appears to be one of the staff. Other patients are pointed out by this "staff member" with many of the other patient's issues being covered. The "staff-member" however, turns out to be another patient who makes up stories to replace the memories she's lost due to amnesia. At this point we are introduced to Park Il-soon (Rain) who is the reigning ping-pong champion. He wears masks, and believes he is capable of stealing other patient's personality traits....I'm a Cyborg ( Saibogujiman kwenchana ) ( I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK )

Customer Reviews

Well directed and well acted.
J. Health
Some of the film is in narration by the main character as she tries to figure out who she is and how to overcome a great lost.
Q. Thornton
I feel like stopping it there ends the film on a much more powerful note.

I accidentally found this movie. I knew nothing about it. I was really pleasantly surpirsed amd so enterained. The wild imagination, and the way it was visually portrayed to enhance these fantasies; made this a movie I could totally lose myself in. I don't want to give anything away; but it was truly hilarious, clever, and heart warming.
Some mentally ill are in their own world/stories and sometimes they experienced other patients worlds/stories.
The characters were brillantly portrayed by these fantastic young actor/actresses. I loved seeing things through their eyes, their self-made worlds. Great experience. It's now one of my favorites. It was fun to watch, so creatively done. Also felt like a sweet little love story without being a corny 'chick flick'. Left an impression that had me thinking.
I actually watched again and saw more clues and details. I really recommend this unconventional and uniquely created film with a real powerful meaning laced through it.

Actually 3.5 stars.
After having watched Chan Wook Park's popular and high quality Vengeance trilogy of films, I had to try this one, too, if only because I'd also seen a "favorite film" blurb about it in a UK film mag. I'm happy that this is finally coming out in Region 1 ; I've had to borrow multi-region players for my previous (R3) DVD.

To start with, "Cyborg" is one of those gray area, caught-in-the-middle movies. Either it will be too little for some, or too much for others. Park's fans, used to his dark tone and violence, might find this one too light or too sweet or too awkward a juxtaposition of tones. Others reading its description as a surreal romantic dramedy (which it is, to a point) might be disturbed or turned off by the psych ward setting, the confused narrative, some of the harsher language, the violent sequences, and/or various disturbing themes and subjects that pop up. I'm reminded somewhat of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil," which has a similar love it / hate it divide.

"Cyborg" is the story of a young woman who is, for reasons that are (mostly) explained over the course of the film, absolutely convinced she is a cyborg, talking to electronic appliances and having weird "Terminator"-style fantasies of blasting the orderlies, and licking batteries in the cafeteria. She also has her own cold and cyborg-type philosophy of life, literally illustrated by children's book drawings of "Seven Deadly Sins." She befriends a fellow patient with a history of stealing who likes ping-pong and trading/transferring the problems of the other patients, a bewildering and varied group with many quirks.

In 2006, the South Korean surreal comedy film "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" from director Park Chan-wook was released.

With Park's work with "JSA", "Oldboy" and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" attracting many international fans, Park wanted to try something much more different, more on the arthouse side by creating a film that would have a surreal dreamlike feel. Because of its surreal nature, the film did well in Korea during its opening weekend but quickly plummeted in sales by its second. Lauded by viewers who felt it was a wonderful, symbolic and unique style of film, those who are followers of Park's more violent and serious works were a bit dismayed by the film as somewhat incomprehensible. Also, the film would mark the first theatrical role for Korea's hot pop star Rain and would bring in an audience not used to seeing this certain style of film.

"I'm a Cyborg" is definitely a film that one will either love or hate and most that I've read disliking it was more because of the film's surrealist take and not coming up with a clear-cut ending. While those who lauded the film enjoyed the symbolic nature of the film, it's smart use of imagery and Park Chan-wook's ability to step away from the style of film's that he is accustomed of doing and doing something else, whether or not his fans approve.

VIDEO:

"I'm a Cyborg" is presented in 1080p (Anamorphic 1:77:1) on a BD25 Disc. The film showcases the vibrant colors of the film. From the vibrant colors of the outdoors to the glowing of Young-goon's toes, there is a good amount of detail featured on the Blu-ray disc. I didn't notice any major compression issues or combing. Blacks were nice and deep and for the most part, very good picture quality.

Format: DVD
Park Chan-Wook's latest is similar to the directorial styles of his well know films such as Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Joint Security Area. So is the screen filled with beautiful images full of color and life? You betcha... however... the content of the film is a far cry from the Vengeance Trilogy. Park's new film is more of a love story, odd as can be, but still a love story at heart. So if you're expecting Oldboy 2... don't bother.

This is a romantic comedy of sorts, but not a light one. Park does goes into some serious subject matter. The film revolves around it's lead actress Im Su-jeong (who you may recognize from the wonderful horror; Tale Of Two Sisters). She plays the part of a sad girl in a mental institution where most of the film is played out where she believes she is a cyborg and refuses to eat. As her health deteriorates, an interest is acquired by another patient played by pop star Bi (Rain). What ensues is a melancholic tale of two characters dealing with their past finding each other in the most odd of circumstances.

This is not played out like a typical rom com; I.E. machine guns coming out of Im's fingers blowing away all the nurses. This is a sad yet amusing love story told like nobody besides Park could tell it. The story is touching, sad and funny. The visuals, effects and set designs are simply beautiful. Again, if you're looking for a blood filled, revenge story this is not for you. If you're looking for a non typical romantic comedy with style to spare then give it a go!
