In one of the late scenes in the morgue/basement when Ben is talking to Charlotte the boom mic is clearly visible in the top right of the picture See more »
The end of the credits have two unusual cast listings: The first is "Featured Ants" (in order of Appear"ants") which is a list of sixty of so names all beginning with A. This is swiftly followed by another small list of 5 "Stunt Ants". See more »
While recovering from a car crash and a coma, the weird artist Ben (Colin Firth) is informed that his wife Elisa (Naomie Harris) died in the accident. He tries to rebuild his life working with an old friend in the restoration of a building, changing his address with his ant farm and having sessions with his former psychologist. Meanwhile, the police is investigating the murder of the model Lauren Parris (Alison David), who worked with his wife. His gorgeous neighbor and super of the building, Charlotte (Mena Suvari), feels attracted for him, but the deranged Ben starts seeing his dead wife and is investigated by Detective Constable Jackson (Ken Cranham) as a suspect of murdering Lauren Parris.
I saw the trailer of "Trauma" and I decided to see this movie, expecting a great thriller. Unfortunately, the direction and screenplay do not work well, wasting a good idea and making a film very confused and even boring in some moments about the process of madness. The identity of Ben's shrink is absolutely predictable. The beauty of Mena Suvari is very impressive. In the end, the trailer of this flick is better and better than the movie itself. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Trauma"
