During the broadcast of the thriller “Vanishing” on Canal+, we spoke with Olga Kurylenko. The actress comes back with us on this experience in South Korea.
Vanishingmore than an investigative film
Olga Kurylenko is in the cast of Vanishing, a thriller filmed in South Korea by Denis Dercourt. She plays Alice, a professor of forensic medicine contacted by a Korean inspector to help him in an investigation. In this dark film, it is then a question of organ trafficking. But the feature film is not limited to this gripping investigation. Denis Dercourt depicts with great delicacy a relationship between Alice and the policeman. A relationship that does not fall into the cliché and brings a necessary softness to contrast with the horror of the main subject.
Offered in South Korea on 700 cinema screens, Vanishing arrives in France on the small screen thanks to Canal+ which offers the film on television and on MyCanal from April 5. On this occasion, we had the opportunity to discuss with Olga Kurylenko to talk about filming in South Korea. A first for the actress who particularly appreciated this experience and the discovery of Seoul, despite the complications linked to Covid-19.
Olga Kurylenko in her element
For this role, Olga Kurylenko, therefore, had the opportunity to play a doctor. A character that she liked given her desire to be a doctor or a surgeon when she was a child. Filming allowed him to approach since Alice is led to intervene directly on a body and to perform an operation. And thanks to the very realistic special effects, the actress really believed in it:
It was true. It was beating like a real heart. Team members were not feeling well. But I was in my element, I was super happy!
