Beginning with the forty minute version of Dumplings that includes newly shot footage as well as that taken from the feature length release, director Fruit Chan explores society's obsession with youth and the lengths to which people will go to prolong it. The second segment is Cut, directed by the irrepressible Park Chan-wook, the story of a film extra with a grudge who forces a good-natured director to prove that deep down he has a nasty streak. The collection concludes with Box, a ritualistic tale of a female novelist who is haunted by a childhood trauma, directed by the cult legend Takashi Miike. Narrated almost without words amongst a series of eerie locations, the film has all the hallmarks of its director.
