The Bay of Silence between madness and fear
Currently starring in the film Vanishing that she shot in South Korea, released on April 5 on Canal+, Olga Kurylenko particularly likes the thriller genre. This time, it is in Europe that the Franco-Ukrainian actress is packing her bags. At the heart of the movie The Bay of Silence where she embodies a woman bereaved by the disappearance of a “ghost baby” during her birth.
The day her child, Rosalind (played by Olga Kurylenko) was born thinks she lost one of the babies that she carried inside her womb. While obsessed with this thought, Rosalind disappears overnight with her three children. The husband (Will) played by Claes Bang, goes looking for her, aware that she is not well.
In search of the truth, the man discovers a side of his wife that he does not know. In a story where madness runs through all these characters, it is difficult to disentangle the true from the false. Does Will really know his wife? What is she hiding?
Straight to small screens
The Bay of Silence plunges us into the reality of a couple that is breaking up, where lies hover over this disappearance. Trailer images show a Chinese puzzle that seems even fuzzier as the character moves closer to the truth. The two parents of the disappeared seem to have crucial importance in the story. Performed by Brian Cox (Succession) and Alice Krige.
