From Jindřich Polák, director of the 1963 Czech sci-fi classic Ikarie XB-1, comes another foray into science-fiction with this lesser known but equally impressive feature Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea. But unlike the serious ‘hard’ sci-fi approach of Ikarie, this film is a deliciously demented time-travel romp that manages to be both hilariously silly and impressively ingenious at the same time.

 In the near-future, time travel has become a possibility, and a group of neo-Nazi's hijack a time-ship in order to go back to 1944 to deliver a hydrogen bomb to Hitler and thus secure victory in WWII…     

Polák expertly balances the film's disparate elements to produce a work of immense pleasure which is unpredictable, irreverent, intelligent and wildly funny - and which emerges one of the great undiscovered sci-fi movies of the 1970s.

A particularly ingenious and delightful surprise... It's a lovably absurd gem.” Shock Cinema

“[A] fascinating, bizarre but instantly accessible and phenomenally enjoyable movie.” Blueprint Review
