Who’s a Cyborg?

A co-worker just recommended this movie to me. It’s called I’m a cyborg, but that’s Ok. This is definitely on my list. A woman feeling so out of touch with humanity due to our hyper-mechanized modern world that she convinces herself that she is a cyborg. That doesn’t sound so far-fetched to me. Has anyone else seen it?

  1. The story line of “I’m a cyborg, but that’s ok” is about a group of patients at a modern-day South Korean psychiatric facility. (Which, by the way, is very nice!) The main character, a young lady, has splintered from reality and truly believes that she is a cyborg, and is starving to death because she is convinced that if she eats her cyborg body will malfunction.
    One of the reasons this movie is so compelling is the positive love the characters show to the young lady who thinks she’s a cyborg; particularly one young man in the institution who sacrifices for her daily. “I’m a cyborg, but that’s ok” is a somewhat grotesque view of how people can become so disconnected from each other that they go insane. But even then, there is hope, as a spark of potential love is in each of the insane, yet tender-hearted, patients.
    “I’m a cyborg, but that’s ok” is a compelling, passionate account of how friends, and potential lovers, sacrifice to save the main character from her own insanity. The film is worth a rent on netflix just so you can see the depths that young man goes to in order to save her from starving. It’s incredibly lovely.

  2. UGH. Lars and the Real Girl was TERRIBLE mainly because I thought Lars wasn’t sympathetic and in fact, sort of scary. I think it’s the way Lars was written and also, how Ryan Gosling portrayed him. The characters in “I’m a cyborg, but that’s ok” are much more lovable.
