Movie Info

On the surface, One Last Dance is a scintillating Singaporean crime film, but pay attention. What's bubbling beneath is a puzzle whose pieces consist of images and dialogue that, when put together, lift the viewing experience from the enjoyable to the sublime. In a country of four million, it isn't easy to hide, but in the darkest corner lurks an anonymous hit man known only as "T." He is summoned from the shadows when a red envelope, carrying the name of a man who has betrayed the gangster code, is dropped into an unmarked mailbox on a side street close to hell. After a life filled with killing, T-a man with neither vices nor family-decides it's time to retire after this job, to leave Singapore while there is still room to move. But in a world of darkness, shadows can play tricks on you. Things aren't always what they seem to be, and getting out may cost a heavy price. Writer/director Max Makowski returns to Sundance (The Pigeon Egg Strategy) with another cinematic riddle that's as fun to figure out as it is to watch. Featuring a fantastic ensemble collection of actors, creative cinematography, and brisk dialogue, One Last Dance merges Eastern and Western sensibilities into one dynamic film.-- (C) Sundance Film Festival

  • A soulful lead performance by Francis Ng as a disillusioned hit man is the main reason to see One Last Dance.

  • It's not that the entire piece is written so terribly; it's just that the film is thrown together in the most undesirable fashion.
