Product Description


It's silly, it's superficial, it's so desperately earnest about its tale of time-spanning love that you almost wish for a cheap flatulence gag just to break the solemn mood. But there's something so unabashedly gushy and entertaining about Somewhere in Time that you can't begrudge its enduring popularity. The film has become a staple of romantic-movie lovers since its release in 1980, and endless showings on cable TV have turned it into a dubious classic of sorts--a three-hanky weeper that anyone can enjoy as a guilty pleasure or a beloved favorite, with no apologies necessary.

In his first film after the star-making success of Superman, Christopher Reeve stars as a contemporary playwright who visits a posh hotel and sees the portrait of an actress (Jane Seymour) who had performed there in 1912. He becomes obsessed with this beautiful woman and learns all he can about her, and then discovers a method of hypnotically transporting himself backward in time to meet her. "Is it ... you?" she says upon seeing the lovestruck playwright, and it's clearly a mutual attraction. But even the slightest reminder of the playwright's modern time can jar him from his seemingly real existence in the past, so his wonderful love affair is constantly just a step from being stolen away.

Based on Richard Matheson's novel Bid Time Return, this flaky film may strain one's tolerance for plot holes and corny romance, but it's hard to deny its lasting appeal--and let's face it, guys, it'll make wives and girlfriends swoon if they're in a tearjerker mood. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely Moving Oct. 12 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a Class by Itself June 27 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'GUY' movie...Better than Terminator. Jan. 10 2004
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.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase

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.

The Blu-ray transfer is okay but not great. Different film stocks for the different eras works well for me.
