Based on a novella from Lillian Lee (Farewell, My Concubine), this 2004 Hong Kong film directed by Fruit Chan (what a name) stars the box office queen Miriam Yeung and Hollywood actress Bai Ling. The movie dabbles with the supernatural and delivers a haunting and even realistic glimpse of human horrors. The movie was expanded from a short segment, Three... Extremes.

A former tv soap actress decides to eat a Mainland woman's special dumplings in her quest to obtain eternal youth. Trashy Mainland immigrant Mei is a former singer-turned-doctor-turned-abortionist-turned-cook whose dumplings is said to provide eternal beauty. What is truly revolting, is the contents of the dumplings. Watch the movie to see what DUMPLINGS is all about....

Be warned, this movie is not for the faint hearted!!!
