As usualI I won´t give the plot away - this is a non-spoiler blog. There is a hunt for a stolen and lost painting: Goya´s "Witches in the air". The quest brings to light repressed memories and leads to hidden layers which get successively revealed.
"Trance" is a roller coaster for the eyes with a lot of sex & violence. The cinematography shows what a modern camera technique (including digital postproduction) is capable to. Cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle takes you on a psychedelic trip and creates a furious dance of pictures which could make you drunk. Together with the slick editing and the hypnotic soundtrack generates the film a intoxicating experience.
"Trance" shows that you still could count on Europe - at least in the cinema business.
