Sounds like the setup for an old-fashioned caper film, such as Charade, Gambit or How to Steal a Million.
But given that the director of Trance is Danny Boyle, it is best not to jump to such conclusions. The Oscar-winning auteur behind Slumdog Millionaire rarely does anything conventional even if it's a genre film.
he says of the thriller, due out next year, "It begins like that. But
it takes the idea of a stolen painting and develops into something
sleeker and more psychological, with twists and turns."
There also is a three-way love story that involves James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as the amnesia-suffering auctioneer, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Unstoppable) as the therapist and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) as the gang leader.
wanted to do an updated noir, give it a contemporary spin in terms of
emotion," adds Boyle, determined to not reveal too much. "Noir is
usually cold. I wanted it to be more emotionally charged. It's the first
time I put a woman at the heart of a movie."
What Trance shares with some of Boyle's other films, such as 1994's Shallow Grave, is characters who operate inside their own bubble. "Their only point of reference is to each other. There are no outsiders."
One clue to what the movie holds in store can be found in the lost 18th-century painting in question: Goya's Witches in the Air, a chilling portrait of a floating trio of pointy-hatted male witches apparently feasting on a victim.
partly inspired by a 2003 British TV movie, reunites Boyle with
screenwriter John Hodge, who has written four of his nine features,
including Trainspotting. It also is the first time since 2002's 28 Days Later that the director has filmed in London.
The locale was important since Boyle also was juggling a stage production of Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller as well as overseeing the Summer Olympics' opening ceremonies.
key to putting on an entertaining show with the whole world watching is
not unlike that of making a successful movie. "No one has ever tried
to pace the ceremonies before," Boyle says. "They have wonderful bits
but are usually pretty boring. I tried to keep it at a fast tempo."
recently turned down a reward for his efforts during the Games —
namely, knighthood and a chance to be known as Sir Danny. "Anyone who
knows me knows that isn't my cup of tea," the British director says. "I
find it embarrassing to be called Mr. Boyle."

There’s a piece on the film in the current issue of Empire magazine –
the iPad version of which is going for just 69p right now, so check it
out for yourself.
Here are the newly released stills from the film that accompany the
article. As well as McAvoy we see Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel, the
hypnotherapist and threatening criminal mastermind respectively.
We start with McAvoy wondering around in the underground – and note
the hall of mirrors element. The “shifting” and “buried” natures of the
subconscious are going to being evoked a lot in this movie.
