In 2016 Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the music for the Japanese thriller Ikari (Rage). Based on the famous novel by Shuichi Yoshida, directed by Sang-il Lee and starring Ken Watanabe, the film tells the story of a grisly unsolved murder that links three seemingly unrelated stories in three different Japanese cities. The film features a beautiful and moody piano-driven score by Ryuichi Sakamoto. Its main theme is unforgettable.
Following on the footsteps of Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son, the score to Rage is another opportunity for fans of the composer in Europe and North America to have access to the work of Ryuichi Sakamoto in contemporary Japanese cinema.
