YesAsia Editorial Description

Born in Burma (a.k.a. Myanmar), Midi Z left the country for Taiwan at the age of 16, where he eventually entered the film industry as a director. All three feature films of his young career, compiled in this box set, were filmed in his native country. With his most recent feature, Midi Z has firmly established himself as one of Taiwan's leading independent filmmakers, as he was named Best Director at the Taipei Film Awards. Ice Poison was also Taiwan's entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2015 Academy Awards.

Return to Burma (2011)
After Burma held its first general election in decades, many Burmese who'd left to work in other countries thought that their native country was progressing, including Xing Hong and A-rong. Having decided to return to Burma, Xing Hong and A-rong eagerly awaited their departure date. Unfortunately, a work accident takes A-rong's life just days before the young men were set to leave. Thus, Xing Hong returns home with his friend's ashes. As he'd been away for so long, Burma now felt both familiar and alien to him. Xing Hong started to realize that he was now a foreigner in Burma...

Poor Folk (2012)
Hoping to work in Thailand, Xing Hong and his younger sister travel to the Burmese-Thai border. Soon after their arrival, Xing Hong's sister is kidnapped by human traffickers, and Xing Hong, hoping to earn enough money to pay the ransom for his sister, finds work as an assistant tour guide in Bangkok. When natural disaster hits the Thai capital, Xing Hong is left without a job, so he decides to return to the border to sell drugs.

Ice Poison (2014)
With his livelihood threatened by industrial agriculture, an old farmer decides to sell his cow for a motorcycle for his son, hoping that he can make a better living as a driver in the city. Unfortunately, work proves to be elusive in the big city, and the young man quickly finds himself floundering – until he meets Sanmei. A native of Burma, Sanmei has recently returned from China to bury her grandfather. She hopes to make enough money to re-settle in her home country with her son and escape an engagement to an old Chinese man. Recognizing their mutual need for cash, Sanmei proposes to the young man that they work for her cousin, who deals in the trade of a drug called ice poison.

Product Information

導演:趙德胤

  緬甸的出身背景,再加上台灣的環境滋養與電影寫實美學的浸染,成就了如今在國內外備受矚目的「台灣導演」–––趙德胤。

  「歸鄉三部曲」是趙德胤至今的劇情長片作品集,一路以來,已展現獨特的影像風格與作者魅力。從刻苦緊縮的拍片條件中出發,他有能力以簡馭繁;面對碩大的當代社會議題,他亦懂得以繁化簡的道理。《歸來的人》從外勞處境延伸到人人都得面對的生命抉擇;《窮人。榴槤。麻藥。偷渡客》延續同樣題旨,卻大膽挑戰複雜的敘事結構。到了《冰毒》他則展現出更加成熟簡鍊的電影語言,精準呈現一個關於愛與生存的故事。就美學來看,他的電影足以跨越國界、語言與文化隔閡,大步邁向國際;就市場而言,環願如今陷在商業與回收泥淖中的主流台灣電影,他的作品反而擁有穩定的投資報酬率,象徵著另一種新思維。趙德胤這個名字,代表著台灣電影的未來,更是你我不該錯過的當下。
