Trance (2013)


+ Absolutely amazing cinematography. Just brilliant.
+ Good acting from McAvoy, Cassel and Dawson.
+ Altough the storyline was a bit confusing sometimes, I really enjoyed it.
- I don't know why but I didn't like the twist at the end that much. It wasn't bad, but I hoped they were meeting for the first time.
