The film is either titled "Cyborg Girl," or "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" -- I am guessing that this is one of those times of tricky translation. It is not your average gloomy, dank, white asylum flick. Cyborg is actually Park's first film to garner a general admission rating. The trailer, which is available through Twitch, contains a lot of color without it seeming too much like a gumball explosion. Park attributes this to pulling the luxurious out of the ordinary. Su-jeong Lim might be dressed in a plain shift, but with her white eyebrows and blue-black hair, she manages to make even a potato sack sparkle.
JoongAng Daily just released a brief interview with Park, while he was finishing up post-production for the December 7 release. While the quirky aspects in the trailer make the film seem like one of those strange, oft-dismissed Japanese films, Park's discussion of salvation and youth says a lot about the possible depth of the movie. Yesterday's cyborg might have been that big, Belgian Van Damme, but it seems like today's version comes in a much smaller, feminine package.
