''Sexmission'' (''Seksmisja'' in Polish) is a 1984 Polish ScienceFiction film.

Two men, Albert and Maks, are chosen to be cryogenically hibernated as part of a test. However, something goes very wrong and they are left frozen for many more years than they were supposed to. They wake up in a post-apocalyptic underground totalitarian world inhabited entirely by women, and find themselves defending the very fact that they're men. In the future, it seems, all of history has been re-written to only star female heroes, and men have since been done away with entirely. But is everything as it seems, and are men really useless, like the new society claims? Can Albert and Maks turn the world back on the right track?

The ensuing adventure is part sci-fi sex comedy, part harsh criticism on Eastern European Communism. Or any totalitarianism. And while it would appear to be first and foremost a pamphlet against radical feminism as well, that was not really the case when the movie first came out, as in Soviet-controlled Europe feminism was never actually allowed to develop anywhere beyond its early 20th century form, i.e. granting women voting and divorce rights. Still, that did allow ''Sexmission'' to escape the fate of an overwhelming majority of comedies made in Eastern Europe during the communist era, namely being seen as hopelessly obsolete and confusing a mere few years after TheGreatPoliticsMessUp. For these reasons, the film is still well-loved in Poland and other post-communist countries.

----
!!This film contains examples of following tropes:
* AfterTheEnd
* AirVentPassageway: Combined directly with SoMuchForStealth
* AllJustADream: {{Played with}}, as ''a dream of this very trope being used'' occurs at one point.
* ApocalypticLog: A piece of newspaper from 1993 found in an old boot reveals some details about the political situation shortly before the war, like the dissolution of the United Nations.
** [[HilariousInHindsight Or the USA being in debt]], so they sold Alaska.
* BrickJoke: Just after being woken up, the protagonists have problems with artificial food, stored in weird containers. [[spoiler:For example some sort of paste is stored in an egg-shaped jar opened by twisting it. Three guesses what happens near the finale when Lamia's served a real egg.]]
* ChanceActivation: The capsule is activated when one of the male protagonists curses. [[spoiler:It makes sense considering Her Excellency, who had set the password, is male.]]
* CityInABottle: [[spoiler:The nuclear wasteland that appears to surround the entrance hatch to the base (and the periscope used to observe the surface from the inside) turns out to be a circular backdrop in the middle of a perfectly fine seaside location.]]
* CleanDubName: For its Soviet release, the original title was initially translated as ''Новые амазонки'' ("New Amazons") for [[MoralGuardians obvious reasons]].
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Even if the film was criticizing Soviet communism, it was greenlit in the USSR for its {{aesop}} of the evils of a totalitarian society and historical revisionism. Only the title had to be changed to ''New Amazons'', since "sex and violence propaganda" was prohibited by the USSR's criminal code and the topic had to be avoided.
* CorruptChurch: The all-female society follows a twisted version of Christianity in which it is Adam who picked the apple off the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and later tempted the female into eating it. It is also mentioned how "the man Cain invented crime and tried it out on his sister Abla".
* DepopulationBomb: A male gene-suppressing weapon GoneHorriblyWrong exterminated the male population, due to [[spoiler:historical revisionism of the Women League. Seemingly it worked more or less as intended, but most of the remaining boys were converted to women.]]
* DisguisedInDrag: [[spoiler:Her Excellency!]]
--> '''Maks:''' "So we almost got castrated here, and you're gluing a pair of tits onto yourself, you gyp?!"
** Also Albert and Maks in the penultimate scene.
* ElevatorEscape: Lots of them.
* EscapeFromTheCrazyPlace: The room where Albert and Maks are held looks almost like the one from the asylum. It's even lampshaded by Maks.
** And then it turns out the Women League's "council hall" is located directly above it.
* EscapeSequence: Most of the film is this.
* {{Fanservice}}: Quite a lot for obvious reasons - see InnocentFanserviceGirl below. Could also serve as FanDisservice to some, considering that none of the women are shaved, the movie being made in 1980's Poland after all.
* FoodFight: With pies!
* FutureImperfect: The women of the future are brainwashed by their StrawFeminist leaders that daily-use tools, like shaving razors or corkscrews, were used by men to torture women.
* FutureFoodIsArtificial: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because of the radiation outside.[[note]][[spoiler:Except it doesn't exist.]][[/note]] Actual vegetables are a valuable good, and it's hinted that possession of them is illegal. An elderly lady begs a visiting scientist not to confiscate her potato plant. Right after that, the aforementioned scientist bribes the elder with a jar of marmalade for some information regarding males.
* {{Gendercide}}: Obviously.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Basically the whole movie is a satire on communist society but one particular line, a solid TakeThat to the Soviet Union, stands out in particular and has become one of the most-cited quotes in the whole Polish movie history:
-->'''Maks''': On to the East! There must be ''some'' civilization out there!
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Lamia.]]
* HumanPopsicle
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Considering that they live in all-female society, the girls have no problem with their nudity, especially around the swimming pools or during shirt-swapping after games (for some reason they don't have bras in the future), [[AllMenArePerverts much to the delight of Maks.]] Albert's reaction is less enthusiastic, but then, he's the more repressed of the two.
-->'''Albert''': Our civilization has collapsed, and all you care about is ass!
* IWasBeatenByAGirl: Almost word-for-word.
* KangarooCourt: The last two males in a LadyLand inhabited by {{Straw Feminist}}s are put on trial, with their crime being their gender.
* LadyLand: Obviously.
* NextSundayAD: The movie, made in 1984, starts in 1991 (which seems more like TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture). That said, action switches to 2044 fast.
* NoPartyLikeADonnerParty: Before their final escape, Albert and Maks are sentenced to become organ donors; their remains are to be turned into high-protein nutrient.
* OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture: 2044's security systems run on UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum, apparently.
* PaperThinDisguise: All randomly encountered women are completely unaware of the protagonists' true gender, so Albert and Maks can easily pass for women, as long as they address each other in feminine forms. It works most of the time. Justified in that most of the time average employees are supposed to be unaware of either the two men's escape or their very existence.
* PhlebotinumPills: All women are reminded by the computers to "take their pills". While it seems a minor background detail at first, [[ChekhovsGun the pills are vital to the one-gender system running smoothly]]. [[spoiler:They convert the women's sex drive into professional ambitions, resulting in an asexual, career-oriented society.]]
** When Lamia's interest in the captured men starts wandering into unprofessional territory, she stops taking her pills. [[spoiler:The withdrawal makes her even more unprofessional, resulting in a HighHeelFaceTurn]].
** When the protagonists stumble upon a [[LaResistance Decadent Camp]], they spot [[spoiler: couples making out]], since Decadents are off the pills [[spoiler:and thus have a healthy sex drive]].
--> '''Maks:''' Hey, look, look! *beat* Nah, females, all of them.
* PrecisionFStrike: Conveniently this turns out to be the password for the lift to the surface, supposedly know only by Her Excellency. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue surprised reactions from the clueless elevator guards.]]
--> '''Guard 1''': What does that mean?
--> '''Guard 2''': I don't know!
** It works on multiple levels - the password, while usually just translated as "fuck" when put into sentences without context, translates literally as "your mother is a whore", something no woman would say.
* TheReveal: At one late point, we learn that [[spoiler:[[ChekhovsGunman Maks's daughter]] survived the war, and is now filled with rainbows due to her wishes of applying revenge upon her father. Her desire for revenge is over him leaving her and her mother for the duration of the experiment.]] Come to think of it, her mother's attitude (as seen in the beginning of the movie) might have influenced [[spoiler:daddy]]'s decision.
** Even later, we learn that [[spoiler:the world wasn't completely destroyed in the war. In fact not all men went extinct, however due to the DepopulationBomb being rather effective anyway, the Women League enforced sex change operations on survivors. Her Excellency turns out to have been a man all along, surviving due to his mother's plan to disguise him.]]
* RightUnderTheirNoses
* ShoutOut: Multiple.
** Maks's surname, Paradys, connects it to the novel ''Paradyzja''. Its author, Creator/JanuszZajdel, also wrote ''Cylinder van Troffa'', which has ColdSleepColdFuture as its main plot and features Earth as a(n almost) NoWomansLand.
** At one point, a list of older women's names is displayed, and it's seemingly full of various shout outs. The most obvious ones are the director's surname as well as Kwinto, one of the protagonists of Machulski's earlier movie, {{Vabank}}.
** Another one to {{Vabank}} - remember the black tourist in white clothes, who was walking an enormous dog? There is [[DistaffCounterpart one in this movie too]] (it's the lady asking for directions).
* SituationalSexuality: The Decadents reawaken sexually once the Pill wears off, and there aren't any men left in the world, so what's a girl supposed to do?
* StrawFeminist: All women.
* {{Symbolism}}: A Communist bloc specific variety; it's for GettingCrapPastTheRadar, specifically political crap. There are multiple parallels between the presented society and a communist one, with females representing the proletariat. At some points this gets quite blatant (including a scene parodying the parliamentary assembly).
* TakeThat: During Maks and Albert's hearing, they try to come up with the names of various male scientists to prove that men had a lasting impact on the human civilization, however, members of the committee insist that those were, in fact, all women. Since one of the scientists mentioned happens to be Copernicus, it might be read as a parody of a German-Polish controversy regarding the nationality of the famed astronomer (who considered himself a subject of the Polish king yet spoke German on an everyday basis), dating back to the very beginnings of both the German and Polish nationalist movements.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The protagonists wake up from their hibernation in the year 2044, fifty years overdue.
* UnusualEuphemism: ''Naturalization'', for [[spoiler:enforced sex change operations.]]
* UsedFuture: At one point two female workers complain about the malfunctioning equipment at their workplace.
* WomanInBlack: The [[StateSec Special Section]] [[PoliceBrutality enforcers]] and the [[MadScientist Genetix staff]] wear black uniforms. Special mention goes to [[ManipulativeBitch Emma]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Dax]], who seems to pull double shifts as a member of '''both'''.
* {{Zeerust}}: The world of 2044 is full of monochromatic CRT screens, UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum computers, and a robotic vacuum cleaner seen in one scene doesn't exactly look like a Roomba.
** The world was turned into ruin in the early 90's, with women fleeing into mines, so it can count more as FridgeBrilliance... from a certain point of view.
