Featuring David Sylvian on Forbidden Colours!


Academy Award-winning composer Sakamoto both starred in and scored the 1983 film.


In 1983, David Bowie and Ryuichi Sakamoto (celebrated composer and Yellow Magic Orchestra member) starred in the film Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. Directed by Nagisa Ôshima, the film follows a British soldier (played by Bowie) in a Japanese prison camp during World War II. Sakamoto played a young soldier at the camp who develops an intimate relationship with Bowie's character.  Sakamoto also composed the film's score, which won the 1983 BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.
