An art auctioneer gets involved with a gang of criminals. In order to recover a priceless lost painting, her turns to a hypnotherapist. But as reality, desire and hypnotic suggestion collide - things become complicated and more dangerous than anyone could have anticipated. This movie was a bit of a let down I mean the movie as good acting but forgettable movie.

I thought there would be more to this movie than what the trailer showed, but I had no idea it would have as many twists and turns as it did. I really dug how it all played out and I was genuinely surprised a few times. The psychological edge to the story makes for a sustained involvement in the the mystery. Boyle delivers solid, visually striking direction as always. A good, streamlined, and fast-paced thinker.

I liked it a lot. It seems that James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson make terrific movies. But, I do think hypnotism is nonsense. It makes for good movie material though!

An arty crime movie with lot of plottwists.



An intense beginning, a middle that makes you sprawl in your sofa and a finale where you're tossed back and forth by an accumulation of twists. That's just about the brief summary that I can make here. The visual way of conveying and the atmospheric soundtrack aren't turning this into a real high flyer eventually.

The various plot twists may indicate two things : a ruse to hide the weak storyline or the director himself lost it completely. Based on the article from nu.nl I gamble on the second. It's an art film. That's indisputable. The stylized camera moves and the sometimes dazzling neon-like colors show this directly. Ultimately it's bout the art world and the artificial manipulation of one's consciousness through hypnosis.

McAvoy and Dawson both deliver a strong performance....

A mimicked version of Inception without stupidity

Directed by Danny Boyle
Starring James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassell

Danny Boyle, the man behind a masterful film (Slumdog Millionaire) and the adventurous thriller (127 hours) has picked a thriller inspiring from Inception. But it is that, it never tried to copy. Trance is thrilling. Trance is unique for Boyle. His vision: Never try to be hero is evident here. Nothing greatly boasted or splendid but, a provocative and heart tugging drama filled with intelligent action and demanding performances. Simon, auctioneer (wonderful, McAvoy) loses his memory due to an injury and he is forced to get back his memories with a hypnotist (charming, Dawson), so that he can give to his opponent Frank (rusty, Cassell) a painting worth the risk. But this is not alone, the film. There is a...

Trance review

The best line in this critics opinion to sum up the story was "The memory is not destroyed, it is locked in a cage, and with enough force, enough violence, the lock can be broken. It comes back, the memory, not completely, not entirely, but enough to drive you, to make you feel you have been cheated, enough to make you angry." A film about a stolen painting, hypnotism, memories and love. Soundtrack was impressive coming from Boyle but the plot confuses and tries ti impress. Dawson and McAvoy show convincing performances but the characters were dull. Obviously not one of the director's best efforts but worth viewing for the sake of art, crime and drama. Trance may not bring anything new but the overly stylish method of the way it was presented may be worth while.
