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 (Zítra vstanu a opařím se čajem). 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.
