Best known for the Quentin Tarantino-championed 'Oldboy', Park Chan-wook's unique take on the romantic comedy is set in an insane asylum. Cha Young-goon (Lim Soo-jung) is a young girl who thinks she's a cyborg. Fellow inmate Park Il-soon (Rain) falls for her innocent charm. Whimsical, charming and with moments of violence at its heart, Park's film is a kooky kind of love story.
