From the director of Oldboy, this offbeat romance follows two people who fall for one another in a mental hospital: a young woman who thinks she’s a cyborg and a man who thinks he can steal people’s souls.

Probably the weakest of Park's films. It is a bit of a mess really, as it meanders from one half coherent segment to another. Park still has his visual brilliance but it has neither the depth or engagement of his best work.
Charming, wacky, light hearted, its very difficult not to enjoy on some level. Didn't love it as much as some of Chan-Wook's other stuff but the extremely impressive cinematography shows what an amazing visual style he has.
Quirky and light-hearted. The character developments are excellent and engaging. With its bizarreness, the viewers get to feel for the peculiar characters. The visual is quite an artistry too, bold and colorful. At the end of the film, I wasn't blown away but however I was moved. Good enough.
Bizarre romantic comedy from director Chan-wook Park is one of the most imaginative and original of its kind, with great quirky performances and special effects. The cloying strangeness does get tiresome after a while, but Park's extraordinary visual sense keeps it continually surprising. Great Elfman-esque score by Yeong-wook Jo.
