The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman

The film is split into three stories titled “Desire”, “Vengeance” and “Greed”. “Desire” is set in a remote area in Ancient China where a butcher named Chopper (Liu Xiaoye) is in love with Madam Mei (Kitty Zhang) and tries to buy her, but is beaten to her by the swordsman Big Beard (Senggerenqin) who gets her first. In retaliation, Chopper gets vengeance on Big Beard with his cleaver.

In “Vengeance”, a Chef (Mi Dan) is told that the strong Eunuch Liu (Xie Ning) will pass through in a month’s time and wants to eat the Chefs renowned eight-course meal. If there anything bad should happen in the meal, the chef will be killed, so he chooses his mute apprentice (Ando Masanobu)to take his place and passes his secret about his fresh fish. The chef is unaware of the real identity of his assistant.

In “Greed”, the Swordsman Dugu Cheng (Ashton Xu) inherits a lump of iron that was made by Fat Tang (You Benchang) from the melted-down swords from previous champion warriors. After making the iron into a sword, Dugu faces problems when entering combat with it.

The film is a connection of three inter-twining stories. The first about a butcher who takes revenge on a swordsmen for taking his wife, the second is about a chef who has his apprentice makes an eight-course meal for the powerful Eunuch Liu. The final story is about a warrior with a powerful sword melted from other champion swords, but the sword does not work as expected during combat.
