I had anticipated more of an action/thriller, but TRANCE is even better...more of a psychological suspense!!! The plot "almost" revolves around an art heist, but, don't think..."oh, another 'art heist caper' film", because it's very far from that. The art heist itself could almost be another character.
The writing and performances are all masterful! James McAvoy is the magnetic lead, playing Simon, who stole the painting (I'm not giving anything away here), received a fierce blow to the head from Frank, a wicked bad-ass, very well done by Vincent Cassei, which results in Simon losing his memory of what he did with the painting. Giving a bewitching & captivating performance is Rosario Dawson, playing the hypnotherapist Simon is brought to, in order to try hypnotherapy to coax & recover his memory, and, therefore, the painting....
This is where TRANCE really begins playing with viewers' minds, teasing and tantalizing us with each step Simon takes!!! Here's what TRANCE'S plot is really all about...memories: real, "suggested" perhaps even false memories & suppressed memory. This recipe proves deliciously entertaining!!! For we're taken along on a twisting, turning, taunting, engrossing ride of what's real & what's imagined!!! While it may sound extremely confusing, the brilliant writer(s) of TRANCE and the director, Danny Boyle, "almost" answer one question at a time during each new scene as it unfolds...(or do they)?!
TRANCE builds & builds the suspense throughout the film, culminating in an invigorating thrill throughout, tying it all together neatly & very satisfyingly for the viewer. TRANCE is everything & more a psychological suspense should be and it's exceptional!!
Basically the film is about a young and cunning security guard for one of the London's high-end auction houses played by McAvoy.
At the start of the film it seems that he is the main protagonist. Than we quickly find out that he is mixed up with the wrong kind of people led by Cassel, who lets just say do not believe in honest living and 9 to 5 work. Soon afterwards, we are introduced to the third main character Dawson, a sexy female psychiatrist who specializes in hypnotherapy. All three want one thing, and that is a painting worth few million English pounds, but only one of them knows where it is hidden, the problem is---------- he does not remember...
I can see why some might not like it. It (intentionally) gets outright confusing for stretches, and there are admittedly few cheats in the logic, though far fewer than most films of this type. But I had a great time; the energy is high, the photography is excellent (Boyle used multiple types of cameras and color schemes to highlight the different realities), the acting is fun, and I found myself more emotionally involved with the characters and more invested in the outcome than I expected for a ‘head-trip’ type of film. One of those rare films where I really had no idea at all how things were going to turn out – the price of a lifetime of watching too many movies! I could see the flaws, and I don’t blame you if they make you want to scream in frustration at times, but they just didn’t bother me, I was having too much fun.

From the opening action to the closing scene revelation, I was gripped by this. I employee you to watch Trance and without spoiling the story, you will have a new Top 5 film
