"A meditation on movies, myths and memory that greatly rewards your patience." —Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"A meticulous, poetic paean to a vanished time and place that is never less than spellbinding." —Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter

"Endlessly inventive… has the power to make you laugh and the power to break your heart in half." —Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

Locarno Film Festival, New York Film Festival


A wonderfully mysterious, shape-shifting feature from celebrated filmmakers Joгo Pedro Rodrigues and Joгo Rui Guerra da Mata, The Last Time I Saw Macao is a detective tale that blends film noir, documentary footage and personal travelogue to intoxicating effect.

Following a spectacular opening number, a lip-synched rendition of Jane Russell’s sultry “You Kill Me,” the film’s hero, in voiceover, sets the tale in motion. He has come to Macao in search of Candy, an old friend, who he fears has been kidnapped by a shadowy criminal syndicate. He searches the city streets and back alleys, gambling dens and music halls, but Candy’s whereabouts continue to elude him, until a larger, more sinister plot comes into focus. - Cinema Guild

85 MIN / Portugal/France | Portuguese with English Subtitles / DCP
