Ryuichi Sakamoto: Opus


Dir: Neo Sora | Japan | 2024 | 103 mins | Subtitled

The definitive swan song of maestro Ryuichi Sakamoto, Opus is an exquisitely realised celebration of an extraordinary artist’s life.

In the years leading up to his death in March 2023, legendary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto could no longer perform live. But in late 2022, he mustered all his energy to leave the world with one final performance: a concert film, featuring just him and his piano.

Curated by Sakamoto himself, the 20 pieces performed in Opus wordlessly illustrate the incredible innovation and breadth of his musical career, with a selection spanning his popstar Yellow Magic Orchestra period, to his magnificent Bertolucci film scores, to music from his meditative final album, 12.
