Storyline

It's 6:20 a.m. The camera pans a slew of alarm clocks that start to ring simultaneously, all set to awaken a solitary middle-aged man. The alarms are elaborate: in addition to traditional clocks, horns blow, bright lights flash, and a pot even blows smoke at the sleeper. After several minutes, the bed itself finally bounces him to his feet and he begins to make his way through his house, slowly, keeping only a step ahead of things falling, or cutting through the air head high. He grabs his coat, shambles out the door - and it becomes apparent why it is he must wake up. These surprising duties completed, it's time for an espresso. It arrives like clockwork, right on schedule. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

hahaha ... I have been trying to locate this forever
7 April 2009 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Incredibly funny. Perfect timing. I saw it in Karlovy Vary Film Festival, Czech Republic, in 1996 or 1997.

I still remember the sequence of events. I have been addicted to coffee ever since this film.

I'd love a copy of this film.

Incredible.

How the hell did they rig the house like that? Not CGI? Amazing!

I wonder what the producers and directors are doing now?

Brilliant, exceptional, superb work.

PS: If the makers see this. I'd love them to contact me. There should be a reshowing of it somewhere in the world. Australia!
