PSYCHO-thriller Trance is a gripping film that will have your head hurting.

Art auctioneer, Simon (James McAvoy), becomes mixed up with a group of criminals and is involved in a multi-million dollar robbery of a painting.

After receiving a blow to the head during the raid, Simon is left with no memory of the location of the expensive artwork.

In an attempt to track its whereabouts, Simon meets with a hypnotherapist to recover the lost painting.

Before you come to any conclusion, Trance is one film that is not exactly what it seems.

As the film unravels, it would seem there more to Simon than what is on the surface.

Trance will perplex your mind, question your assumptions and leave you brain boggled.

It was hard sometimes to work out if you were experiencing a situation in the hypnotic world or in the real world.

James McAvoy's plays the character of Simon with stirring charm.

It would seem the young Professior Xavier from X-men First Class has a darker side.

The story is brilliantly told, the characters sharp and cold and the plot clouded with mystery and ambiguity until the very end.

An ideal movie to watch in these overcast days.
