Durian Durian (榴槤飄飄) is an art-house Hong Kong movie by Fruit Chan released in 2000.

Yan is a young woman from northern China who has moved to Hong Kong for three months (the duration of her visa) in order to work as a prostitute. She services dozens of clients a day, and in between tricks, becomes acquainted with Fan, the pre-teen daughter of a family from Guangdong staying in Hong Kong illegally. Fan and her mother eke out a living washing restaurant dishes in a back alley, while her father conducts a bit of cross-border trade.

When her visa expires, Yan moves back to her hometown but stays in touch with Fan, who sends her a durian as a gift.

Not to be confused with the British band Duran Duran.
