Actress Olga Kurylenko helps the Korean police in a mysterious and complex case that is the main plot of the film “Vanishing” by director Denis Dercourt.
A Franco-Korean thriller
Murder and kidnapping hold the plot of Vanishing. The new film by Denis Dercourt plunges into the heart of a mysterious investigation with multiple secrets. A professor of forensic medicine helps the police solve an investigation that seems to be very complex. This production with dual French and South Korean nationality takes us to the depths of the city of Seoul.
The French director Denis Dercourt is therefore back. Absent for almost three years and his last feature film The teacher released on June 5, 2019, the filmmaker takes over the camera. With Vanishingthe director releases his film on Canal+ on April 5. As it hits theaters in Korea on April 30. It is not curious to see him simply taking over the management of French television. We still wonder if Vanishing could not have found its audience in French cinemas.
Olga Kurylenko joins the investigation
Vanishing appears as an enticing proposition to the public. Headlining Olga Kurylenko leads the South Korean cast consisting of Yoo Yeon-Seok, Ye Ji-won, or Choi Moo-sung. The Franco-Ukrainian actress has already distinguished herself many times in front of the camera. Including that of Terry Gilliam for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. She also plays alongside Tom Cruise in oblivion or with the famous James Bond (Quantum Of Solace) played by Daniel Craig.
If the subject does not seem to shine by its originality, the French director hopes to propose an intense police investigation. The trailer gives us some clues about the content of the film. Violent, visceral, the first images show us an investigation full of tensions with still unknown issues. In this singular city of Seoul, the register of the thriller does not run out of steam in the minds of the screenwriters. Now let’s see if Vanishing keeps its promises.
