Three ... Extremes is a three-part Korean-Japanese-Hong Kong film directed by Takashi Miike, Park Chan-wook and Fruit Chan, released on August 20, 2004.
The film follows the concept of directing the horror film Three Stories from the Afterlife directed by Kim Jee-woon, Nonzee Nimibutr and Peter Chan in 2002.
Box: Kyoko remembers her sister, Shoko. Dead a long time ago now, the little contortionist reappears to him, however, sometimes with a disturbing face. Feeling directly responsible for the death of her sister, young Kyoko multiplies dreams, strange dreams: she is in turn suffocated, buried alive ... loved.
Cut: A famous filmmaker and his wife find themselves kidnapped by a maniac. This one proposes to cut a finger of the hand of the young woman, every five minutes, if the taciturn Korean director does not comply with all his requirements.
Dumplings (Nouvelle Cuisine): Eager to win back her unfaithful husband, Mrs Lee actively tries to regain her past youth. To this end, she buys the services of a mysterious Chinese woman: Aunt Mei. The latter claims to be able to revive a forgotten youth, to then make it last. She then offers Mrs Lee to taste her secret recipe: Chinese dumplings ... the ingredients of which she buys from abortion services in China.
