China Cry - Julia Nickson (1990) - Estrada de Cacilhas, Macau

The pair of lovers embark on a bike ride that takes them seemingly all over Macau (though don't forget we are actually still supposed to be in Shanghai). This reminds me of the fact that Macau has stood in for Shanghai on a couple of occasions on this blog previously - for Fist of Fury, Shanghai Surprise and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Anyway, part of this bike ride takes place a few metres away from the location of this post along the road that is more famous for being the location of the Taipa Houses Museum: Estrada de Cacilhas*

The top picture shows that although all the houses along the strip are now nicely restored, it wasn't always the case with the one on the right hand side looking quite unloved. The lower picture is actually from a later scene with Nickson looking over towards what would have been Coloane on the other side of a body of water. These days she would be staring straight into the Cotai Strip.


* This is the one on Taipa, but there is another road of the same name over by Guia Hill on the Macau peninsula.
