Storyline

Former Nazi Klaus Abard survives to the 1990s by taking anti-aging pills. He plans to use a time travel trip to return to Germany in 1944 and present Hitler with a hydrogen bomb, so that he can win the war. Unfortunately the pilot, woman-chasing Karel Bures, dies on the morning of the trip and his earnest twin brother Jan impersonates him, without knowing about the plot. The plot goes wrong when they lose the bomb and land near Hitler's bunker in 1941, at a time that the Nazis sense victory. Bures, with two of the plotters, escape capture by the Nazis and make it back to the time machine. Bures programs the machine to return one day before they left, because he figures he can then save his brother and foil the plot. Written by Will Gilbert

Funny & clever time-travel movie
16 August 2004 | by (Belfast UK) – See all my reviews

I too saw this as a young teenager one night on BBC2 in the very early eighties. Over twenty years later I still remember it. I would love to see it again.

All I can remember is that it involved time travel, eastern Europe (aka the Communist countries), a balcony, a sequence of going back to the same moment and place in time repeatedly and a cup of tea getting spilled on someones hand (perhaps more than once).

It was very clever, very funny and had a happy ending.

That night on BBC2 must have been the only time it was ever shown to a wide audience. I'm amazed that it seems never to have been screened again. Is it because it only appealed to 13 year-olds? There are things I've grown tired of since that age but, right now, there is nothing that I recall having completely changed my mind over. So I would probably still love it!

Find it! Watch it! Again!
