Sometime in the near future, time travel is a reality, and a group of neo-Nazi’s hijack a rocket to return to 1944. They plan to deliver a hydrogen bomb to Hitler, ensuring a victorious outcome to WWII, but their meticulous plans are fatally derailed by a stale bread roll...
From Jindřich Polák, director of the sci-fi classic Ikarie XB1, comes this deliciously demented time-travel romp. Bursting with ingenious ideas, the film is unpredictable, irreverent and wildly funny. A deliriously absurd gem (which has something of a cult reputation in the UK following an unscheduled one-off screening on late-night TV in the early 80s), Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea emerges now as one of the great undiscovered sci-fi movies of the 1970s.
Presented in a new HD transfer from original materials, our region-free Blu-ray and DVD editions feature a new Projection Booth commentary with Kat Ellinger, Jonathan Owen and Mike White, a booklet featuring a new essay by writer and filmmaker Graham Williamson and more!

“This is easily the greatest Czechoslovak time-travelling Nazi comedy ever made.” Michael Brooke
“One of the most sophisticated time-travel films yet made... [an] insanely convoluted comic story, with a richer use of time paradoxes than is ever seen in western SF cinema.”
Peter Nicholls, The Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction
“A particularly ingenious and delightful surprise... Runs on many of the same time-paradox ideas that were later used in the Back to the Future movies.” Shock Cinema
“[A] fascinating, bizarre but instantly accessible and phenomenally enjoyable movie.” Blueprint Review
“Blends science fiction with farce to great effect, spinning multiple time paradoxes without getting too hung up on the theoretical science behind it... a fantastically enjoyable romp. [...] It’s an absolute blast.” Czech Film Review
