BBFC insight: 

<p>TRANCE is a British crime thriller in which an auction house employee conspires with a criminal gang to steal a valuable painting.</p><dl><dt>Violence</dt><dd><p>In one scene, part of a hypnosis-induced dream, a character is shot in the head and chest. When he stands up to confront his assailant, the top half of his head is missing, with blood and brain tissue evident. In another scene a man is interrupted as he attempts to assault a woman. He is deliberately shot in his clothed genitals, with a large spurt of blood from his groin.</p></dd><dt>Disturbing images</dt><dd><p>There is also a brief gruesome image towards the end of the film when the body of a woman is discovered in the boot of the car. The corpse is covered in blow flies. The film also contains a scene of torture, with sight of a man screaming as he is held down over a crate in a deserted warehouse. There is blood on his fingers and it is inferred that a fingernail has been removed, after which another fingernail is pulled off.</p></dd><dt>Sex</dt><dd><p>There are two sex senes, both being brief and showing little detail. In one a woman straddles a man as he sits on a bed, with some sexual thrusting in long shot.</p></dd><dt>Nudity</dt><dd><p>There is also full female nudity, as a woman emerges from a bathroom having shaved her genitals, with the man commenting on what she has done.</p></dd><dt>Language</dt><dd><p>There is strong language ('f**k').</p></dd></dl>
