Synopsis

A liberating social satire.

André and Vera are a young entrepreneurial couple. They get the opportunity to pitch their app at a prestigious seminar designed to attract investors. Before going there, Vera tries hypnotherapy to quit smoking. From this point, her attitude suddenly changes, leaving André baffled.This bitter story takes a meticulous look at the mechanisms of appearance, the limits of love and the processes of social reproduction.

Norwegian actor Herbert Nordrum delivers a remarkable performance, accurately conveying the deep sense of embarrassment inherent in the prevailing social codes.

Critics

“For its narrative lightness and its ability to make the viewer laugh sincerely in a series of well-constructed absurd situations and surprise them with unexpected twists, The Hypnosis does very well.”
