Tokarev - Die Vergangenheit stirbt niemals (Germany) (alternative title)
Rage (France) / (USA)
Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the thriller Tokarev from 2014, starring Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage and featuring a score by newcomer Laurent Eyquem who gained much attention with his scores for both Copperhead and Winnie Mandela in 2013. As with these previous works, in Tokarev Eyquem concentrates on the dramatic aspects of the story, presenting lyrical themes for strings to capture the suffering of the main character Paul Maguire (Cage) who seeks revenge for the death of his young daughter in battling the gangsters who are responsible for her untimely passing. The action is underlined by an eclectic mix of electronics and orchestral elements, evoking a driving force which keeps the entertaining, diversified score forward. As a bonus, we included an insightful audio-commentary by Laurent Eyquem who talks about career and the concept of this specific score. The fifth CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.
