The Final Programme (1973)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
After the death of his Nobel Prize-winning father, billionaire physicist Jerry Cornelius becomes embroiled in the search for the mysterious "Final Programme", developed by his father. The programme, a design for a perfect, self-replicating human being, is contained on microfilm. A group of scientists, led by the formidable Miss Brunner (who consumes her lovers), has sought Cornelius's help in obtaining it. After a chase across a war-torn Europe on the verge of anarchy, Brunner and Cornelius obtain the microfilm from Jerry's loathsome brother Frank. They proceed to an abandoned underground Nazi fortress in the Arctic to run the programme, with Jerry and Miss Brunner as the subjects.

Frank: What you need is some Tempodex, Jerry. That's what I'm on. Time-fix, it's my remedy for everyone. Can't you feel those millions of years waiting in your spine, huh? Waiting to find their way up into your back-brain, your mid-brain, your fore-brain? You'll never know you had so many brains, Jerry, till Tempodex starts opening them up for you.
