Fans of The Worst Person in the World and Sick of Myself, pay attention: Ernst de Geer’s directorial debut meets all your requirements! In Hypnosen we follow Vera and André (Herbert Nordrum, The Worst Person in the World), a millennial couple who are attempting to launch an app together. Just before an important pitch, Vera visits a hypnotherapist to finally deal with her smoking addiction. Unfortunately, the hypnosis does not seem to help her on that front, only leaving her with a range of bizarre side effects. A dry Swedish satire with a healthy dose of awkwardness.
