4 Apr 2008 – 1 May 2008
A hilarious, romantic and deliriously over-the-top change-of-pace for director Park Chan-wook, who's best-known for his violent 'Revenge' trilogy (also showing this month). A young woman (Yeong-gun, played by Lim su-jeong) is checked into hospital suffering from the delusion that she's a cyborg, although the institution and her fellow patients seem only to further inspire her fantasy life.
Director Park has given this offbeat romantic-fantasy a vibrant, playful style, while CGI effects combine memorably with yodelling to create the film's stand-out set-piece.
A Tartan Films release.
