I just saw this disturbing and amusing movie Dumplings as part of the Asian American Film Festival. I would recommend it, but only if you're not too easily grossed out. You know that Asian custom of eating eggs with the baby chickens still in them? Well, that's not the worst of it. Let's just say I'm not planning on going to yum cha and eating dumplings any time soon.

Bai Ling, who plays the main character Auntie Mei in the movie, was there in person and spoke afterwards. She told some nice little candid anecdotes about the filming of the movie. Very entertaining.
