Plot

Simon (McAvoy) double-crosses Franck (Cassel), his partner in an art heist, but suffers amnesia after a head injury and can’t recall where he has hidden a stolen Goya masterpiece. Franck insists Simon consult hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Dawson), dragging her into a game of multiple betrayals and buried memories...

Verdict

Though it rings ever so slightly hollow as cool shades into callousness, this exercise in sexy suspense and brain-scrambling mystery is a dazzling, absorbing entertainment which shows off Danny Boyle’s mastery of complex storytelling and black, black humour.
