Storyline

Tony (John Light) works in an auction house, where he is surrounded by many valuable works of art. Enlisting the help of London gangster Brendan (Neil Pearson) and his associates, Tony hatches a plan to steal a priceless Goya painting. Things get complicated when the heist leaves Tony concussed and Brendan with no painting. When Brendan takes Tony to a Harley Street hypnotherapist to try to cure his amnesia and remember what he did with the painting, the hypnotherapist (Susannah Harker) realises she's onto something, and uses her considerable skill to manipulate minds and memories to her own advantage..

a very nice surprise.
27 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

A really intriguing plot. Although the end has problems, the movie was exciting. A clever script in a low budget movie, with outstanding perfomances and some very unexpected plot twists. The psychological analyses of the characters was really superb. The first film in which i enjoyed so much the plot twists since Memento, unlike so many others in which the twists seem needless and contrived.
