After the critical success of Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours, followed by his triumphant work on the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, director Danny Boyle makes a complete volte face for his next film. Trance is on the one hand a flashy crime caper, but also a trashy erotic thriller, filmed with plenty of style and verve, but without taking itself very seriously at all. James McAvoy schemes with Vincent Cassel to steal a priceless painting from a London auction house, but when he suffers a blow to the head and forgets where he’s hidden it, McAvoy goes to Rosario Dawson’s Harley Street psychotherapist for help. Things quickly escalate into a heated love triangle between the three principles as they battle to outsmart each other in time to get their hands on the elusive work of art.

Fernando and I discussed the film at great length on the podcast here
