André and Vera are a well-functioning couple striving to make their mark in the business world. When they pitch their new health app in a prestigious entrepreneurial competition, they have a golden opportunity to secure wealthy investors. Shortly before the competition, Vera sees a hypnotist to quit smoking, but this has an unfortunate side effect: she loses all social inhibitions. Suddenly, their business idea finds itself in a serious predicament.

Herbert Nordrum, known from The Worst Person in the World (2021), takes on the role of André, and his performance earned him the award for Best Male Actor at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. In her role as Vera, Asta August confirms her position as one of Sweden's best actors in her generation.

With The Hypnosis, debutant filmmaker Ernst De Geer has created a modern relationship satire with a sky-high "cringe factor" about breaking down social norms and vain customs. Many have rightly drawn parallels to Ruben Östlund, but De Geer also demonstrates his unique ability to build situational comedy.
