A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.
An intense beginning, a middle that makes you sprawl in your sofa and a finale where you’re tossed back and forth by an accumulation of twists. That’s just about the brief summary that I can make here. The visual way of conveying and the atmospheric soundtrack aren’t turning this into a real high flyer eventually.
I thought it was a mediocre movie eventually. And I really don’t like a movie to end up in such a way that you can view and interpret it in different ways. To me that’s like modern art. Eventually you see something you think you should see, or what someone thinks it is, using an obscure description with many expensive and intellectual expressions (annoying posturing for me).
A work of art without a soul.
