Fruit Chan's expanded version of the "Dumplings" vignette from the move "Three Extremes." Fascinatingly disturbing look at the price some will pay for youth. Eerily shot, giving you just glimpses and hints at first into just how twisted and macabre these "black market" dumplings filled with the youthful rejuvenating power of aborted human fetuses are. Bai Ling seems so strange in real life that her portrayal of Aunt Mei was entirely realistic. Cannibalism and abortions and incest - OH MY. It makes me feel weird to say that I enjoyed this film - but I did, very entertaining if you can stomach it.
I understand the ending in this film is different than the one in "Three Extremes" so now I want to see that too.
