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.
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

Done real well and when Christopher was in his prime. She took the DVD and I kept the VHS tape.
I must have liked it much though as when I ditched VHS recently I got this in DVD and didn't with quite a few others like the wuthering heights movie she enjoyed so much.
I loved the movie! It has such a simple, understated beauty. Christopher Reeve at his best, smitten, awkward and funny. Jane Seymour DOING what she does best, romance, heartfelt and elusive. I was shocked to see critics had panned this, it is such a sweet film.
The plot line is intriguing. A guy becomes obsessed with a woman's picture, so much so that he longs to travel back in time and meet her. I love time travel journeys and this does not disappoint. No big special effects, no Holly-weird extravaganza, this film relies on the chemistry of Reeve and Seymour. The costumes and set are beautiful, the lovemaking is beautiful. Although I am not a prude by any means, it was nice to see subtlety with much left to the imagination. Probably a great film for Valentine's Day. And not just a chick flick, I hear men like it too. Also, check out the spooky interview with Reeve as he talks of his later 'out of body' experience, eerily in synch with this story! GREAT movie.
