Two tapes, two Parisian mob killers, one corrupt policeman, an opera fan, a teenage thief, and the coolest philosopher ever filmed all twist their way through an intricate and stylish French-language thriller.
Young writer Richard Collier is met on the opening night of his first play by an old lady who begs him to "Come back to me". Mystified, he tries to find out about her, and learns that she is a famous stage actress from the early 1900s, Elise McKenna. Becoming more and more obsessed with her, he manages, by self hypnosis, to travel back in time where he meets her. They fall in love, a matching that is not appreciated by her manager. Can their love outlast the immense problems caused by their "time" difference? And can Richard remain in a time that is not his?Written by
Automobiles are not allowed on Mackinac Island, Michigan, location of the Grand Hotel and site of much of the movie. The use of cars for the movie required special permission from the town. Although cars were allowed for filming, the cast and crew weren't allowed to drive them outside of actual filming for the movie. See more »
When Richard initially goes backstage to look for Elise during the afternoon rehearsal, he passes a hanging bare light bulb. It is a frosted light bulb of modern design (since the '40s) - not the hand-blown clear glass bulb that was in use in 1912. See more »

I got some news. There was an agent in the house tonight, and he said he thinks this play might be good enough for Broadway.

Fingers crossed, who knows? Come on, let's all have some cake.

The new 20th anniversary edition DVD and video have been digitally remastered for better clarity, and include a new documentary on the making of "Somewhere In Time" (60 minutes on DVD, 30 minutes on video) featuring current interviews with the cast and crew, as well as a running commentary from director Jeannot Szwarc. They also include new, never-before-released stills from the film, and a documentary on the fan organization INSITE: The Int'l Network of Somewhere In Time Enthusiasts (rare for a studio to acknowledge).

I am a young man who grew up loving horror, action, and kung-fu movies. I hated the Victorian books we were forced to read in school. However, the one exception to the rule has been this movie. I LOVED this movie. The story line was solid. The direction was superb. And the acting was so good, that I have always wondered why Reeves & Seymour's career didn't catapult after this film. I have watched it many times since it came out, and ever time I am captivated. If you can't relate to this movie, I think you must have a heart of cold stone. This gets a strong KBONE rating of 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Pay special attention to Seymour's soliloquy during the play and Reeve's facial expressions during that time as well Reeve during the last 10 minutes of the movie. I really can't say enough about this masterpiece.
