One Last Dance (2006)
Thursday 26th July 2007
Set in Singapore, T is a ruthless assassin with a formidable reputation who is hired to track down the kidnappers of a business man's son, an incident which involves his good friend. Ko. Yet his actions could be compromised by this long-term friendship with the captain of police, and his love for Ko's sister. He kills them one by one but with every death he gets closer to the shocking revelation of the final name.
One Last Dance, released by Tartan Video on 24th September 2007, relishes its shadowy inner city environment riddled with bullets, enabling director Max Makowski to bend and twist the tension along with the chronological order of events. It provides a jigsaw of suspense with a multi-layered narrative, making T's dilemma even more pronounced.
Previously, Makowski built his career through reality TV shows such as Queer Eye For The Straight Guy and The Agency, but proves himself masterful at handling unnerving drama. Oscar-nominated Harvey Keitel, veteran of gritty urban action (Mean Streets, Reservoir Dogs, Bad Lieutenant), finds a tough new role on Singapore's crime-riddled streets playing Terrtano, the wealthy businessman out for revenge.
The cast also includes top Hong Kong action hero Francis Ng (Infernal Affairs 2; Heroic Duo; Exiled) as the mysterious assassin T, a man who seems to have accepted his fate and Ti Lung (from John Woo's A Better Tomorrow) who adds an element of comedy into the heightened drama.
One Last Dance is an arresting, power-punching experience.
