Film: Three Extremes

Three... Extremes is an Anthology Film directed by three Asian filmmakers from different countries; Fruit Chan (Hong Kong), Park Chan Wook (South Korea) and Takashi Miike (Japan).

It was predated by the earlier anthology Three; the film's international release came after this one and was thus called 3 Extremes II.
