The last painting
chen hung-i/taiwan/106MINS/North America Premiere
On the day of the Taiwanese presidential election, third-year university student on Political Science Yang Chieh is found dead in her rented flat. Her naked body is covered with oil paint while her beautiful eyes are dug out by a sharp tool.
All the evidences suggest that her flatmate Jiang Jhong Ze and confidant Nana are the prime suspects.
Nana is a man as well as a woman. Always troubled by her relationship problems, Nana is like a sister to Yang Chieh, but she is jealous of everything Yang Chieh has in her life. In order to search for her true love, Nana is determined to have a sex change operation… Jiang Jhong Ze is a painter and a cynic, who has once been an angry young man involved in the social movements. He indulges in his carnal relationship with his dancer girlfriend, but in the glint of ideals twinkling in Yang Chieh’s eyes, he sees his old passionate self…
In this city, each of them clashes with the establishment, the social conventions, the gender divide and love in his own way. On the night when a group of redundant factory workers lie on the railway tracks in protest, Yang Chieh and Jiang Jhong Ze fall in love with each other. Since then Yang Chieh has become his muse, but that sows the seeds of their own destruction… Why does Yang Chieh get killed? Who on earth has killed her? A murder reveals the true nature of our society, and what live underneath desire and passion are the restless souls of our time.
