‘The Bay Of Silence’ Trailer: Hitchcockian Thriller Stars Claes Bang, Olga Kurylenko, And Brian Cox

A number of Hitchcockian elements collide in The Bay of Silence, a new mystery-thriller from Oscar-nominated Zus & Zo director  Paula van der Oest.

The film stars Claes Bang (Dracula, The Burnt Orange Heresy), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), and Brian Cox (Succession), and it has everything that should lead one to expect the worst. A married couple who buy an oceanside home looking for a fresh start; she’s a renowned artist whose work is “interesting” to say the least; a pregnancy that does not go as planned; and a mysterious stepfather.  When the wife disappears with their children, the husband locates them in a remote French village, but there’s only tragedy, secrets, and lies to his discovery.

Adapting Lisa St Aubin de Terán’s novel is actress-turned-screenwriter Caroline Goodall. This is van der Oest’s first feature since 2016’s award-winning drama Tonio.

The Bay of Silence hits virtual cinemas and VOD on August 14th.

SYNOPSIS: When Will (Claes Bang) discovers his wife Rosalind (Olga Kurylenko) and their three children have suddenly disappeared, he sets off on a frantic search across Europe. He finally locates them in a remote village in northern France, but relief turns to horror when Will discovers his baby son has mysteriously died. Will sets out to discover the truth about his wife’s disappearance and the death of his son, finding himself at odds with Rosalind’s former stepfather, Milton (Brian Cox), who wants to ‘protect’ her for his own private reasons.
