2012 Locarno Special Mention
Dark temples with mysterious smells, clandestine opium houses, restaurants serving dog meat, pirate caves and kung-fu heroes... The former Portuguese colony of Macao is a fascinating, multicultural labyrinth-city. And two directors leave for Macao 30 years later, embarking on a journey of discovery: The Oriental childhood memories of one enter into dialogue with the other´s memories of the Orient, built on the codes of cinema, literature and painting -vivid memories of a fictionalized reality. The result is an album of physical and emotional geography, structured like an investigation disguised as a Film Noir.
