Noomi Rapace ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") will play Israeli intelligence agent Sylvia Raphael in the new film directed by Vicky Juison ("Close"). The screenplay will be written by Rupert Whitaker based on the real events described in the book "Sylvia Raphael: The Life and Death of a Mossad Agent" a former Israeli intelligence agent and teacher of the heroine.|
Sylvia Raphael was born in South Africa and was raised to serve in the Mossad. The scout proved herself in the capture of Ali Hassan Salame, the leader of the Palestinian organization Black September, responsible for the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. However, during the mission, Sylvia mistakenly gave the order to kill an innocent Moroccan waiter, mistaking him for a terrorist.
“The most exciting thing about this project is the opportunity to tell the story of an extraordinary woman who has dedicated most of her life to a country that is not even her homeland,, says Juison. -I like to explore a person who took risks every day and was constantly undercover. I peep behind the glamorous spy sign into the dangerous reality of such a life and motives driving Sylvia".
The director-actress duet was formed during the work on the film "Close" about a woman bodyguard, which was released earlier this year.
