Product Description

Product Description

Somewhere in Time is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past, where true love awaits him. Young Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time with her. Years later, Richard Collier is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman (Jane Seymour). Another picture of this woman in her later years reveals to him that she is the same woman who had given him the gold watch. Collier then becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the beautiful young woman who awaits him there.

Special Features

For devoted fans of Somewhere in Time, the exclusive documentary on this DVD will provide welcomed insight, background history, and poignant validation. The film was virtually saved from oblivion by a combination of cable TV exposure and grassroots fandom, and this engrossing documentary benefits from the participation of the film's principal cast and crew, all of whom remain as fond of this production as its legion of fans. Taped in 2000, the interviews are highlighted by the perspective of Christopher Reeve, whose fond recollections gain a certain profundity when combined with the physical impact of his paralyzing injury in 1995. But Reeve (who compares his near-death experience in the film with one he actually had after his injury) isn't the only one whose life had been touched by the magic of this film-that-wouldn't-die: from director Jeannot Szwarc to Jane Seymour and all others involved, Somewhere in Time was clearly a special experience, and their pride and pleasure are sweetly conveyed in this enjoyable hour-long tribute. Additionally, the DVD gives due credit to the fan club INSITE--the International Network of Somewhere in Time Enthusiasts--in a featurette exploring the club's history and membership. The INSITE's mailing and Web site addresses are also provided. --Jeff Shannon

En mai 1972, Richard Collier est abordé en coulisses le soir de la première représentation de sa toute première pièce de théâtre par une vieille dame qui lui remet une montre et le supplie de 'revenir à elle'. Huit ans plus tard, alors qu'il essaye de trouver l'inspiration pour sa nouvelle pièce au 'Grand Hôtel', il est étrangement captivé par la beauté d'une jeune femme sur une vieille photographie. Avec l'aide de Arthur Biehl, un vieil homme qui travaille dans l'hôtel depuis 1910, Richard découvre que cette femme est Elise Mc Kenna, une célèbre actrice des années 1920, qui séjournait dans ce même hôtel en 1912. En approfondissant ses recherches, il découvre qu'Elise était la vieille dame qui lui avait remis la montre 8 ans plus tôt, et qu'elle est morte le soir de leur rencontre. La piste d'Elise mène également Richard à un professeur d'université, spécialiste de l'auto-suggestion, qui selon lui, permettrait de voyager dans le temps. Pour y parvenir, le sujet doit écarter de sa vue tout élément en relation avec son époque présente, et se convaincre qu'il est dans le passé. De retour à sa chambre, Richard essaie d'appliquer ce principe dans le but de revenir en 1912, sans succès. Alors qu'il est sur le point de renoncer, il découvre dans un vieux registre de l'hôtel datant de 1912 sa propre signature, preuve qu'il va, ou qu'il a déjà réussi. S'engage alors un voyage dans le temps, où Richard abandonnera son époque pour trouver l'amour dans le passé.

Format: DVD
As other reviewers have said, this movie seems to transcend all of its faults and strike a a very personal chord in the romantics among us. Its intense romanticism prompts us to break the rules in judging what makes a good movie, much as Christopher Reeve's love for Jane Seymour allows him break the rules of time. And, the movie is even more poignant today, since it's about going back into the past, and it reminds us of the past physical vibrance of Christopher Reeve, not as Superman, but as the healthy young man he was.
In many ways, this is Reeve's movie. He almost ruins it with his occasional lapses into Clark-Kentish oafishness, but he also injects into the film its dreamy sweetness, with his hungering eyes and his boyish awe of Miss Seymour. Speaking of her, I think she is one of the most beautiful and competent screen actresses in films and I have no idea why she never really became a huge movie star.
Christopher Plummer adds the right notes of meanness, thinly-veiled jealousy, lurking menace, and his own inner hurt as the blunt end of a love triangle. He also embodies reality, reminding us, by his dissapproving presence, of the vulnerability of the fragile love affair between Reeves and Seymour.
The special segment on the making of the film (in the collector's edition DVD) is a good one. It convincingly shows that the director, crew, and cast loved making this film and had high hopes for it. It also provides some interesting insights into how the novel was adapted for the screen and the choices, sometimes painful, that had to be made in the process. It's gratifying that this segment, which is low-key and refreshingly sincere, features the three principal stars of the film, the director, the composer, the author, and other players and crew members.

I read the book before watching the movie, the movie was a little different, with a few things left out. It was a very heart warming adaptation of the book by Richard Matheson. I found it odd that the day Christopher Reeve pasted away I had finished reading the book and watched the movie. It has become one of my favourite movies ever, of any genre. The cast is amazing, all the characters were wonderfully played, especially Reeves Collier character.
A truely heartwarming, moving, lovley story.

Somewhere In Time arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC @ 31.99 Mbps 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Cinematographer Isidore Mankofsky shot the film with different stocks for scenes set in 1912 and those in the present. The Fuji stock used for scenes in 1912 produced lighter colours and a softer image, which Mankofsky further softened with diffusion filters. The 1980 scenes were shot with Kodak films, which were clearer and sharper than the 1912 counterparts. The strongest element is the palette. The present-day scenes have saturated colours, realistic and, where appropriate, deeply rich. Detail is generally quite good, although, as noted, the image for the 1912 scenes has been deliberately softened and diffused. Nevertheless, the fine points of the period costumes are readily discernible, and so are facial details. Thanks to Universal’s restraint in DNR, a healthy level of grain is present. Unfortunately, dirt and defects are noticeable for this 34 year old film. (3.5/5)


The film's original mono mix is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0. It's a wonderful mix, especially John Barry’s beautifully haunting score, now in stereo, including Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody On A Theme of Paganini, with Chet Swiatkowsky on piano solo. Barry’s selection of this piece on a key plot point in the story really enriched my viewing experience. By the way, the Title Theme From Somewhere In Time was performed by Roger Williams. Dialogue also comes across crisp and clear. (4/5)


Somewhere In Time is one of my all-time favourite movie. There's never been a movie that's given me the kind of emotional impact – the pure joy of great storytelling and sadness of true loss – as this film has.

I don't have to think twice that this would be most serene and charming Love Story ever made.
I even liked it more than the Love Story and Titanic itself because it didn't have a hint of commercial cinema in it.
A simple movie with the Most Beautiful actress Jane Seymour and Reeve is just unbelievable in his acting.
Theme Music is just out of this world and everything about the Movie makes Magic. Whoever took Seymour's photo for the movie has made total magic and anyone would find glued to that Photo just like Reeve does in the movie.
This movie will take you back in time!!!

I am offended by the reviewers who have referred to this movie as a "chick flic."
I am a guy, with red blood, and I am exclusively heterosexual; yet this movie is my favorite movie.
Anyone who doesn't give this movie 5 stars must have never truly kissed a woman. Have you ever kissed a woman, just kissed her gently, and you both were sent high up into the air, even above the clouds, you both could feel your bodies floating up and up and up. Your hand was on HER back, but you could feel that same hand on YOUR back, as if you were her, for that moment. You experienced it both through your own lips, and hers. It was magical.
If you HAVE experienced this, you will relate to this movie.
If you have NOT experienced this, you are missing out on LIFE...
This movie speaks to me on the deepest level of who I am. I consider it so sacred a movie, and unlike any other, that I don't mention its name to my friends. Even the few who have discovered my connection with the movie have been asked by me to not talk about it, even in the most positive terms. Pearls are not meant to be cast before swine, and if you don't keep pearls tightly clenched in your fist, you never know when the swine are around you, which might snatch the pearl.
