After spenging years in Portugal, Guerra is called back to Macao, the erstwhile Portoguese colony that had only recently been returned to mainland China, by Candy, an old friend who claims she's in serious trouble after her boyfriend was shot dead (for real) during a harmless wargame. She fears she's next ...

When Guerra arrives in Macao, he fails to get in touch with Candy, and while he roams the city trying to pick up her trail, she always seems to be at least one step ahead - intentionally or not? Finally, he receives a letter from her - that informs him though that she might probably be dead by the time he reads it (and she is, as he later finds out), but it also tells him where to find an item those who were after her are really after. But picking up this item leaves him in harm's way ...


In essence, The Last Time I Saw Macao is a loveletter to Macao, where one of the directors spent his childhood - and that in itself isn't a bad thing, as Macao is a fascinating city, and the film manages to mix scenic tourist hotspots with scenes from actual city life, views of the city's back alleys and the like.

However, in all, The Last Time I Saw Macao is not a very good movie, basically because very much like the masterful Suzhou River, it is a movie pretty much without actors, that focuses on the city it's filmed in more than on the actual action that's only narrated off-screen - yet other than Suzhou River, The Last Time I Saw Macao lacks a unique style (or any particular style at all), it seems to be little more than a sequence of quite ok shots of the city with little actual aesthetic ambitions. Also, the story of this film eventually seems to lose itself, and tries a little too hard to evoke a film noir feel that's not at all reflected in the images.

To put it quite bluntly: A disappointment!
