YesAsia Editorial Description

Known for its award-winning social and human dramas including the long-running "Life Story" and "Innovative Story" series, Taiwan broadcaster PTS launches the new imprint "PTS Originals" in 2017 as a creative platform for up-and-coming filmmakers. This video release collects the first two films of the series, The Last Verse and Upstream, both of which depict the struggles of young people.

The Last Verse
To Ah Shi (Paul Fu, My Egg Boy), the time spent with Xiao Ping (Jenny Wen, A Touch of Green) are the best days of his youth. He met her in the brightest summer of 2000, and the two vowed to walk hand in hand into the future. They thought that better days would lie ahead after Ah Shi completes his army service, but the harsh reality of society finally pushes them apart. As the years pass and political winds change, can Ah Shi and Xiao Ping still remember the poetry of youth they once recited together? Directed by Tseng Ying Ting, whose Life Story drama The Cat in the Closet won Best Cinematography, Editing and Sound at the 51st Golden Bell Awards.

Upstream
In 1998, petrochemical company Zhongwan set up operations in the city of Wanhe. Eighteen years later, the city's south bank region has become a prosperous industrial area while the north bank has turned into a polluted wasteland. As young people move away in droves from the north bank, only the older generation remain to safeguard their hometown. On the eve of the mayoral election, protests against Zhongwan's expansion flare up. Incumbent mayor Kuo (Chang Han, Taipei Exchanges) has long enjoyed the monetary support of Zhongwan, but even with massive campaign spending, he is still lagging behind in polls. To turn the tide of public opinion, Zhongwan hires a young man (Ray Chang, Eternal Summer) from north bank to stage a kidnapping. Directed by David Chuang, who previously directed The Iron Concorde for the Innovative Story series.

Product Information

當二、三十歲的「後青春」世代漸漸離開青春彼岸,面對社會現實的碰撞,是將崩解、重組,還是新生?

公視推出全新品牌「公視新創電影 PTS Originals」,除了以社會寫實為基礎與扶植新導演的目的之外,希望開拓出更多可能性,2017年首波推出《最後的詩句》、《濁流》兩部作品,以青年世代的貧窮作為發想,兩位導演各以詩意及黑色的風格,詮釋台灣現在的社會處境。

導演:曾英庭
演員:傅孟柏、温貞菱、高英軒、姚以緹、高盟傑

對於阿施來說,遇見曉萍那年是最美好的年代,兩人牽手一同寫下生命之詩的開頭。熬過了當兵分隔兩地的苦澀歲月,出社會後的現實壓力磨損了愛情的絮語,變調的詩句使得阿施離去成為不得不的現實。再牽起手又是四年時光飛逝,距離當年艷陽下的燦爛身影已越發遙遠,歷經波折後的重逢,能使他們再念起那首描述歲月靜好的生命之詩嗎?
