Storyline

Two scientists are chosen as guinea pigs for a time experiment: they are placed in hibernation and should be brought back to life after three years. In the meantime, however, the World War III breaks out and life have been wiped out of the surface of the Earth. When they wake up, it turns out that not only 50 years have passed but also that they are the only living specimens of the male sex in a new, underground society composed exclusively of women. Max used to be woman-chaser so he finds himself in heaven. Albert, on the other hand, forgot all about love and sex as a serious scientist, but is willing to learn. So are the Amazons, who after a kiss turn into pliant kittens. The Council of Women is going to decide their fate, so they are trying to win more time.

Trivia

The Outer Limits episode Lithia has been noted for its high resemblance to Sexmission as both involved men waking up from cryogenic sleep and found themselves many decades in the future and that the world is now ruled by women and that they are the only men around. Sexmission has a woman naked in an elevator and The Outer Limits fan Karen Gillan was naked in an elevator in the Selfie episode Follow Through. See more »

Sexmission, Juliusz Machulski's sexy second feature, is a cult Polish comedy, whose dialogues and lines have entered into every day language. Two men kept in hibernation for 50 years learn that they are the only living specimens of the male sex in a new, underground society run by the League of Women's Lib. The female archeologist who digs them up hypothesises she has found the missing link between women and apes.The heroes facing harsh treatment from their female guards will do anything to save their skin and to re-establish the male population.This highly original sci-fi story with a twist and great performances by Poland's top actors is one of the most popular Polish movies of all times.
