Review of 'Dumplings', director Fruit Chan

This film set in Hong Kong bases itself on the assumption that women will do almost anything to remain eternally young, and thus please the men in their life. The main character, Qing Li (Miriam Yeung), is married to an older man who has a penchant for ever younger girls. On her wedding day Qing Li makes three wishes - that men will love her forever, that she will feel happy forever, and for youth and beauty.
