Dumplings (Gaau ji) - Ling Bai, Miriam Yeung Chin Wah, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Fruit Chan

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Mei (Ling Bai) is a trashy, former abortion doctor who shuttles back and forth across the Hong Kong-China border with benign-looking containers of glistening dumplings. Bound not for the family dinner table, these dumplings are of a special sort, and the preferred meal of a high-paying clientele who seek their famed youth-renewing powers. Qing (Miriam Yeung Chin Wah) is a nearing-40 former soap actress clinging to her youth and attempting to win back her philandering husband (Tony Leung Ka Fai), who sucks down chicken foetuses in an attempt to maintain his own vigour. Regular meals at Mei's apartment only whet her appetite for eternally smooth skin, and trigger an ominous search for an even more potent variety of the dumplings' secret ingredient.
