Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son
In 2015 Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the music for 'Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son', the latest film by legendary Japanese filmmaker Yoji Yamada whose career has spanned six decades & over 80 films.
Yamada is perhaps the last director to have lived through what is now known as the Golden Age of Japanese cinema – a period that gave rise to Kurosawa, Mizoguchi & Ozu. This beautiful soundtrack by the master composer evokes a nostalgic landscape of the humble everyday life of Japanese people while successfully paying homage to the film music of the Golden Age of Japanese cinema. This album – never released outside of Japan – is a must have for any fans of Ryuichi Sakamoto.
