At the time I watched the film, they broadcast foreign movies every Tuesday, including Chinese films, so I'm not sure if the language of the film is English​.

There are scenes at a lab. The main roles are a male scientist and another male scientist whose wife is also a scientist and got pregnant. They do experiments and inject something into the wife. The fetus grows very fast, so that the wife's belly explodes and it's a girl.

The main character raises her because the husband can't survive (can't remember what happens). The baby grows up super fast; she turns to a teenager and then a beautiful girl in a couple of days, and they fall in love, the girl getting old so that her hair is all white and she says her last words to him.

I remember (but am not sure) she has supernatural powers and does bad things.

The title in my language is 'Life in Number-of-days' (and the days are less than 10) because I wasn't at the TV when the title was displayed. I hoped it was Splice but it wasn't.

Life in a Day (1999).

From IMDb:

A scientific experiment in rapid-cell growth goes awry when a lab assistant steals the developed serum and injects it into his pregnant girl friend. The result is a child that grows through adulthood and will die within days, if a cure cannot be found.

More details from Wikipedia...

Peter finds the baby at his home/lab. Assisted by Charlotte "Charlie" Tanzi, he studies her as she grows from infancy to adulthood within two days, and names her Jasmine. [...]

Meanwhile, Jasmine begins developing feelings for Peter, and sneaks away to explore the outside world. Peter returns to the lab, leaves Charlie with Mark's notes, and goes out to find Jasmine. He succeeds; Jasmine tells him she wanted to look pretty for him. [...]

By the time Peter reaches the conservatory, Jasmine is elderly. They accept that it's too late to save her, and she dies in Peter's embrace.
