Invisible Waves - Asano Tadanobu (2006) - Rua do Barão, Macau

Invisible Waves is a Thai film directed by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang but featuring a cast from various backgrounds including the main character Kyoji, played by Asano Tadanobu who is perhaps now more famous for playing one of the "Warriors Three" (Hogun) in the Thor series of films. It was filmed in 2006 and shot in Hong Kong, Macau and Phuket in Thailand.

I was first made aware of this film back in 2013 via an email from someone calling themselves "Morgoth Bauglir". Morgoth wanted to know where a particular shot had been filmed in Macau. It's only taken me 5 years to get around to watching the film but here is the location in question. It's near to where the main character, Kyoji, supposedly lives and is called Rua do Barão. The steps start from the end of Rua dos Armazéns up onto the curve of Rua do Barão. We see it a couple of times on film as Kyoji makes his way to and from work in Hong Kong.
