Description du produit

Macao, 1 DVD, 81 minutes

Amazon.fr

Trois Américains, un G.I. en cavale, une chanteuse de cabaret et un inspecteur de police se faisant passer pour un représentant de commerce se rencontrent dans la moiteur de Macao. Ils vont devoir se mesurer au patron de la pègre locale… Commencé par Josef Von Sternberg, dont on sent la pâte dans la peinture vénéneuse et sensuelle d'une Asie réinventée, et terminé par Nicholas Ray, Macao est un polar épique, ardent et culte. Majestueusement servi par le couple Robert Mitchum (le G.I.) et Jane Russel (en chanteuse de cabaret, elle fit du tournage un enfer pour le pauvre Von Sternberg), le film se regarde comme un petit bijou de tension et d'exotisme chaloupé. Et si les cinéphiles regretteront sans doute l'absence de bonus sur le DVD, ils se consoleront largement avec cette copie impeccable permettant de redécouvrir le film sous son meilleur (contre) jour. Jean-Pascal Grosso --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Il y eu des von Sternberg plus aboutis, plus denses, plus envoûtant.s
Mais comment ne pas se laisser charmer par l'invention et l'esthétique de la poursuite finale par cet espèce de ralenti vénéneux de la course, comment ne pas aimer "One frot the road " chanté par une star mutine divine et féroce ? comment oublier que le cinéma s'est d'abord forgé une mythologie pour devenir à lui-même son propre mythe ?
Une pièce à conviction, en quelque sorte.

Action un peu lente. À voir tout de même pour Robert Mitchum mais surtout pour Jane Russel. Aussi pour les paysages

HASH(0x99735d14) étoiles sur 5 A MITCHUM AND RUSSELL BLOCKBUSTER! 9 décembre 2002
Par Elaine Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette vidéo Achat vérifié
This film is a potpourri of oriental and expatriate American film noir. It's two major stars (Jane Russell and Robert Mitchum) fit like gloves into their roles. Their attraction to each other melts through the screen. There are also outstanding character role performances (and these are the film's other great strengths) by Brad Dexter (nightclub owner, gem smuggler, etc.) Thomas Gomez, Gloria Grahame, and a special mention of William Bendix, who really added a tight performance to the film.
The plot is one of mistaken identities, a worn-out songstress looking for a place to land and rest, a man who can't go home, and a NYC policeman on a job. The center scene of the film is a Macao nightclub run by a shady and dangerous character. Mitchum and Russell captivate this plot with their on-screen presences.
Josef von Sternberg directed this film, but his stern movie set policies offended all, and especially Mitchum who did something about it (in the video, Jane Russell, still dazzling in old-age with shining silver hair) tells us this amusing anecdote. Nicholas Ray finished up the directorial tasks when von Sternberg was booted out, and their two talents form an interesting combination.
Mitchem and Russell had a preceding hit film called "His Kind of Woman." They probably would have been teamed again after "Macao," but Howard Hughes sold the RKO studio.
All in all, Macao belongs in anyone's collection of classic film noir.

HASH(0x998de9f0) étoiles sur 5 good Mitchum-Russell sparks; entertaining 24 novembre 2006
Par Film Buff Chris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
I haven't yet seen the dvd version, but am glad it's being released. Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell made two film noir-ish films together -- "Macao" and "His Kind of Woman." They're both good, but I prefer this one. Made in 1952, Mitchum and Russell were at the height of their bigger-than-life attractiveness; and as subsequent interviews with them have shown (I saw one a few years ago on TCM), they actually liked each other and have an easy-going, unpretentious ease to their playing which makes it easy to root for their romance in this film. Mitchum is rightly admired for his acting, but Russell is underrated -- she has an "I know I'm attractive, but it's no big deal" attitude that is supremely likable. And in a film like "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," which I've watched many times, Marilyn Monroe clearly is the charismatic star, but Russell gives superb support, and her "no nonsense" line readings are really expert (and help set Monroe up). The plot of "Macao" is rather dense and hard to follow, but the decor and ambience carry the day -- the look undoubtedly has to do with legendary director Josef von Sternberg (who the stars and crew hated); but some of the scenes, according to that TCM interview, were actually written and/or improvised by the two stars. Russell's also a good, straight-forward singer; and she does an amusing job with Jule Styne's "You Kill Me" (during which the movie nightclub audience pays her no attention) and a nice version of the superb Harold Arlen classic, "One for My Baby." Throw in sultry Gloria Grahame as a secondary shady lady, and it's a pretty entertaining film.

HASH(0x9971b180) étoiles sur 5 Made For Each Other 7 août 2003
Par Patrick Doherty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette vidéo
MACAO is a fairly entertaining story of crime and adventure in the Portuguese colony near Hong Kong after World War II. Jane Russell is a singer working for a local gambling boss (Brad Dexter). Robert Mitchum is an American who is on the run and William Bendix is pretending to be a salesman but he really has another more mysterious identity. The best thing about MACAO is the pairing of Russell and Mitchum who seem to be made for each other.
Josef von Sternberg also directed THE BLUE ANGEL.

HASH(0x99769cd8) étoiles sur 5 Mitchum and Russell Escape to Macao 30 septembre 2007
Par Bobby Underwood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Despite its detractors, and its troubled production history, this is one of Robert Mitchum's best films. This complex crime caper boasts a great cast and an exotic locale, making it a real winner. A lot was working against this film, however. Gloria Grahame hated RKO's Howard Hughes and was in the process of divorcing producer Nicholas Ray at the time Macao was made. The starting script was an indecipherable mess, and the director was an overbearing egoist who nearly provoked Mitchum to violence by his offensive comments to Jane Russell. The fact that the end results are so utterly entertaining is a sheer miracle.

Mitchum's character, Nick Cochran, ends up in Macao and is mistaken for Lawrence Trumble (William Bendix), who might be a cop looking to extradite casino owner Vincent Halloran (Brad Dexter). Margie (Gloria Grahame) is the sensuous and abused ingenue tangled up with Halloran, and she would steal this film in spite of herself were it not for the obvious chemistry between Mitchum and Jane Russell, who portrays Julie. Their simpatico extended beyond the camera, the two becoming friends, each always having nice things to say about the other later on, in much the same manner as the Irene Dunne/Cary Grant duo.

Both had tremendous difficulties working with Joseph von Sternberg, however. Making fun of Russell's faith at one point, she gave a retort that had Mitchum howling with laughter, cementing the two against Sternberg's dictatorial manner. Mitchum not only rewrote some of the convoluted script, but when Nicholas Ray had to step in, he reportedly helped direct some scenes as well. Everyone is a bit of a mystery in this film as to their motives and actions, spicing things up. The cops need to get Halloran out of Macao to nab him, but since everyone seems to be a bit on the shady side, it's hard to know who to trust!

Thomas Gomez rounds out the cast as Lt. Sebastian. The exotic locale and attractive cast makes for fine Hollywood escapism. It's best not to think about this one too hard, but just sit back and enjoy on a Saturday afternoon with a big sub and a Coca-Cola. A lot of fun.

HASH(0x99a7e888) étoiles sur 5 Overlooked Noir Gem 5 janvier 2007
Par D. James - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A wonderfully tongue-in-cheek scripted RKO adventure story directed by Josef von Sternberg ("Shanghai Express"/"Morocco"/"The Shanghai Gesture"). Most of the action scenes were reshot on studio orders (Howard Hughes and his lackeys) by Nicholas Ray--though it retains that unique Sternberg look and feel.

It's based on a story by Bob Williams; the screenplay is by Stanley Crea Rubin and Bernard Schoenfeld. The story is set in the exotic port of Macao, located off the south coast of China, some 35 miles from Hong Kong. It's an ancient Portuguese colony, considered by many as the "Monte Carlo of the Orient."

Three Americans are on ferry boat that left Hong Kong for Macao, and all with different reasons for choosing to come here. Julie Benson (Jane Russell), a sexy lady with a chip on her shoulder, is an unemployed singer and world weary passenger, who had her passage paid for by a sleaze who forces himself on her as the implied payment for the ticket. Nick Cochran (Robert Mitchum) rescues the damsel-in-distress from her sexual attacker and as a reward Julie picks his pocket while giving him a kiss. He's a former sailor, who's on-the-lam over petty criminal charges he faces for a fight he got into back in New York five years ago over a redhead; and, the down-on-his-luck adventurer would rather keep drifting around the world than return home to face the music. Lawrence Trumble (William Bendix) poses as a travelling salesman, but the jolly traveller is really an undercover NYC policeman on assignment to arrest Macao underworld crime boss Vince Halloran (Brad Dexter) for having his Chinese knife to death a fellow NYC policeman because he was hot on the smuggler's tail. Halloran, an American expatriate, runs most of Macao, including a gambling casino. The problem is Halloran can't be arrested in Macao, only in international waters if he goes three miles outside of the protected area.

Halloran expects an undercover cop to arrest him (as was tried before), and has the crooked local police chief, Lt. Sebastian (Thomas Gomez), on the payroll to report all incoming passengers. Because Nick has no papers (his passport was lifted with his wallet), he's suspected of being the cop and is unsuccessfully bribed by the crime boss to leave Macao. Julie is hired by Halloran to sing in his casino, which incurs the jealousy of Halloran's girlfriend Margie (Gloria Grahame).

Taking advantage of the mix up, Trumble uses Nick to lure the gangster off Macao. He supplies Nick with a big diamond from a diamond necklace that the police recovered from a botched smuggling scheme of Halloran's. The other diamonds, worth $100,00 but offered to Halloran for $40,000, are held in Hong Kong, and the gangster agrees to go there to consumate the deal. Instead, he has his Chinese jump Nick. But they mistakenly kill Trumble, not realizing he's the real cop. Trumble, before he dies, tells Nick he cleared up with the NYC authorities the past criminal charges and he can return. But Nick decides to repay the favor, and cunningly gets Halloran to leave Macao and into the hands of the international police.

Jane Russell enthralls as she gets romanced by the laconic Mitchum, and they create movie magic together through their brilliant nuanced performances. The sultry actress was never better, as she belts out a few torch songs, tosses insults at Mitchum with natural ease, shows her romantic side and looks right through the leering bad guys of Macao as if they didn't exist. She's the good-bad girl, while he's the hard-luck innocent who can't even win when playing with loaded dice. They're both film noir characters, who Jane sums up when she tells her man: "Everybody's lonely, worried, and sorry. Everybody's looking for something." If you are looking for an underrated film noir gem, that somehow got swept under the rug--this is it!
