Plot Outline:

Aunt Mei is known in Hong Kong for the rejuvenating effect of her dumplings. Former actress Mrs. Li arrives looking to regain some of her lost youth and attract her wolfish husband back into her arms. But the process is too slow, and Li asks for an acceleration - but the special ingredient is not easily sought - and harder still to stomach once Li finds out the secret... -- Chris Kavan

This comes served in two portions: a feature length film, or as an abridged starter as part of the Three Extremes collection. I've only seen the former and for me it was definitely a case of the more the merrier. Like many recent Asian releases it sits comfortably in the niche between thriller and horror while making some sharp social comments along the way. The title comes from a dish served up to women seeking a cure for aging. The ingredients are top secret, and you soon come to realise why. It's directed by Fruit Chan, one of many pseudonyms used by Peter Chan, one of Hong Kong's top and most prolific directors. His Going Home on another of the Three Extremes packages is particularly outstanding.
