YesAsia Editorial Description

Applause Picture's project Three proved so successful, the second project Three...Extremes once again teamed up creative talents from three different Asian countries. All three short films from these countries are linked by a single common theme: the ugliness of human nature, the horrors of what human obsession can lead to, and this evil in human is far more horrifying than any ghosts and demons that might walk the earth. Hong Kong's Dumplings, Korea's Cut and Japan's Box all deal with these themes that will send a fearful shiver down your spine.

  • First Extreme: Box
    Japan's horror master Miike Takashi, who has directed obscure bloody and disturbing features such as Audition and Ichi The Killer helms Box, and stars popular Japanese actress Hasegawa Kyoko. In the story, Kyoko, the older of the twin sisters, suffers from recurring nightmares about an accident in the circus she worked in at the age of 10 that led to the death of her younger twin. This short does not contain the trademark bloodshed one expects from a Miike film, yet its depiction of jealous sisters trying to win the love of their father is genuinely disturbing. The ending is as unexpected as it is shocking!
  • Second Extreme: Dumplings
    Hong Kong's premier quirky independent filmmaker Fruit Chan returns to the mainstream in this production yet never compromises his unique vision in this film. This is Miriam Yeung's first film in the horror genre, and she abandons her usual goofy persona to appear as a depressed, aging ex-starlet. This is also Bai Ling's first Hong Kong film, with a screenplay by famed local author Lillian Lee and cinematography by Christopher Doyle! This story discusses ex-starlet Ching Ching (Yeung), in hope to regain the love of her cheating husband (Tony Leung Kar-Fei), begins to visit Mei (Bai), who makes extremely rejuvenating dumplings from the most nutritious ingredient of all, unborn fetuses. The ending of this version differs from the extended feature length version...how is it different? Well, you'll have to be shocked yourself!
  • Third Extreme: Cut
    Directed by Old Boy's Park Chan-wuk, it stars Korean star Lee Byung-Hun in a dark horror with a hint of outrageous comedy. Lee Byung-Hun stars a a famous director who is suddenly kidnapped one day, and is suddenly thrown into a completely helpless situation, with his wife's fingers heading into the blender....one by one...Park's stunning visual set-up and haunting soundscape pushes the horror to its ultimate extreme. It is an open challenge to the bravery of the audience. Can you endure it?

    The DVD package features a second disc of bonus materials: It includes an outline of the story, a making-of featurette, trailers, and information on cast and crew.

    Extemely Entertaining Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I am not going to summarize the plot for you, because the less you know going into this, the better. Here we have three short films by three of Asia’s most talented directors. Takashi Miike directs the first film, Box, which is a tale of jealousy between 2 sisters. I was very surprised to see such a subtle movie from Miike. The pace is very slow but was able to maintain my interest throughout. One thing to note is the impressive use of sound mid-way through Box, you will know what I mean when you see it. Anther surprising think about Miike’s film is that it is by far the least extreme of them all, but no less entertaining.

    The Second Film, Dumplings, directed by Fruit Chan and the central theme is vanity. This film keeps the secret from you until roughly half way through the movie and when you find out that secret, it will affect you. It is well paced and well acted.

    Last, but not least is Chan-wook Park’s film cut. This movie focuses on revenge, although jealousy is an underlying theme. Seems like Mr. Park has revenge on his mind an awful lot lately (see Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance). This is another fast paced film and I found it to be interesting throughout.

    In Summary, this movie is not short on the extreme. This movie does not have a clever little title; it is a disclaimer as to what you will dive into. Overall I loved the film and I liked each section more than the last. I have heard some people say they did not enjoy Park’s Cut, but I found it very entertaining. Also, I have heard people ask the question, “Why is cinema like this made”. Well if you are willing to watch and see these movies for what they are, you will see commentaries on society’s lust for keeping the body young, a family’s jealousy of one another and a man hell bent on repaying a world back that ignored him. All of these films are just the extreme of their topics, and if you are willing to see it for what it is, you will not forget it.

    2 out of 3 movies are good Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The title for this collection of short film is appropriate. I thought the Korean and Chinese films were good but the Japanese film was way too artsy and long for me. Great little film to watch - give it a try.

    Pretty sick......good...... Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    "Three...Extremes - Dumplings" with Miriam Yeung and Bai Ling was the one factor that attracted me into buying this VCD in the first place. Both performances were exceptionally well acted. Both give you a sense of their psychological state. Pretty sick...... The clothes they each wear catches your attention too, especially Bai Ling's. What do you think of her lot cut dress at the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards ceremony? Very out there, daring, and downright sexy! Hot!

    Lots of style and not much substance Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
    This anthology gets off to a great start. "Box" is an intelligent and beautifully haunting film. Much like "Audition", Miike lets the tension build and build until we can hardly take it any more. Sure the ending is a head-scratcher, but isn't that why we enjoy Japanese horror? Unfortunately, the ride goes downhill at this point. "Dumplings" is well-done, but doesn't quite get fleshed out. I was left feeling like there should have been more upon its conclusion. I guess I need to seek out the extended version. Lastly comes the story from acclaimed director Chan Wook Park. It's a shame that I chose this film to be my first of his to watch. The first 1:30 is the best part. The story gets so jumbled and ridiculous I had to restrain myself from throwing the remote control at the tv. I expected more. Just as in the original "Three" not all the stories will appeal to your sensibilities. However, as a fan of asian horror, at least one of these should keep you happy.

    The Little Details... Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    This is a fun little film made up of three vignettes which are directed by three VERY DIFFERENT Directors...different styles, different "flavors", and different countries. Each is wonderful in their own right and it is interesting to note the tone of each and realize that each is a different view from very different cultures, Japanese, Chinese and Korean.

    The tales are extremely individual...no overlap here!

    The Japanese set is eerie and beautiful. The soundtrack is haunting (no pun intended). I had chills and discovered that I was holding my breath several times! It frightened me...until the end when I discovered that the story was poignant and had to watch it again from a new perspective.

    The Chinese offering is wonderful. Everyone in it was terrific (I admit, I am a HUGE fan of Tony Leung Ka Fai!) and the performances varied from subtle to outrageous. I happen to own the full version of this set, as well, and I found this ending to be sly. I liked it.

    The Korean piece has taken a lot of hits! I'm not sure why. It was very dark and funny and Lee Byung Hun (Alright, I also crush on him) was great. The "madman" is hysterical...I laughed until I cried listening to him rave. Just to answer a couple of questions presented by other reviewers: 1) the little boy (not girl) is the bad guy’s son. Remember, he says he was having a hard time killing him. 2) the ending can be taken a few different ways…was Lee Byung Hun just talking to appease the bad guy when he told his wife about his hatred of her, etc.? Was he trying to get rid of her so he could have his freedom? Or, had the ordeal driven him mad? These questions were part of the joy of this set.

    I found this to be a worthwhile film all around and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys chills rather than gore.
