One of the most achingly beautiful movies ever
Somewhere in Time is a movie any sensitive person with a heart will love, I guarantee you. From the opening at the theater to the unbelievably moving final scene, I have never seen a film so passionately and yet so innocently depict the power of absolute, all-encompassing, unconditional love.
The story is so simple, yet therein lies the beauty. Richard Collier, a man with no love in what otherwise seems like a nice enough life, becomes enchanted at the sight of Elise McKenna’s painting and with only the power of his heart travels back to her time. Once there, he looks for Elise, and finds her. Elise is confused and does not immediately respond because of her manager W.F. Robinson, but she quickly returns Richard’s love. I will not say anymore, other than that the ending made me feel so warm and yet made me want to cry. You will be hard pressed to find a movie lighter on plot, and there are many questions left unanswered, but that’s perfect because Somewhere in Time is very surreal, and dreamlike even. The emphasis is not on watching events, but on simply feeling love, and this is as close as anyone has ever come to making a movie out of pure emotion.
Jane Seymour looks radiant while on screen but this is Christopher Reeve’s movie. Reeve, after amazing everyone with his talent, good looks, and charisma in one of the biggest blockbusters ever, could have become one of Hollywood’s all-time great leading men. Instead, a series of horrible decisions about what roles to take and not take made it so that he had to do TV movies to pay the bills by the late 1980s. To this day, to 99% of the public he is the paralyzed Superman and nothing more. But this is the one movie that shows what should have been. He very convincingly depicts Richard first as goofy kid, then as empty older man, then as someone simply awestruck by love and determined to let nothing stop him from getting the breathtaking Elise. Then, in the final scenes, he portrays his anguish so remarkably it is wrenching to watch.
Also deserving of special mention is Christopher Plummer, who seems to be an extraordinary actor on the basis of the two films I’ve seen him in (the other is The Insider). A lesser actor would have made Robinson into a mustache-twirling villain, and brought the whole production down to the level of a soap opera. Plummer, however, with his nuanced performance, makes us hate Robinson, but also makes us his feel his pain. Through his subtle mannerisms, we see that Robinson himself deeply longs for Elise’s love, but has probably never been loved and never will be loved by anybody. We thus realize how incredibly lucky Richard is. I personally saw Robinson as perhaps someone whose father never loved him and whose mother died when he was very young, and he has spent his whole life wanting to truly take care of someone like Elise but it is as if he has been rendered incapable. He is still contemptible for the things he does to Richard, but he is also a tragic figure, and the script has nothing to do with that-it’s all Christopher Plummer.
John Barry’s score is also among the most enchanting in movie history, in my opinion. I have never heard a score which so wonderfully conjured up feelings of timeless love. Jeannot Szwarc may not be a well known or otherwise accomplished director, but he does this one perfectly. This movie in the wrong hands could so easily come across as corny and trite, but instead it is such an absorbing masterpiece. Every element in this movie is just perfect, and it should be universally considered one of the greatest love stories of all time (if not the greatest, like I think it is).
As it is most people have never heard of it, but it is nice to know that a small devoted following gives it the recognition it deserves. I hope it continues to win people’s hearts for generations to come.
Why didn’t THIS GREAT MOVIE win even ONE Oscar?
I remember I was 5 years old when I first watched this movie in a video. I remember my mother’s tears each time she watched that movie.
I almost learned it by heart even before I knew what it meant. When I grew up, I finally understood it and loved it so strongly. I think every woman in her heart dreams of living this love, this kind of passionate first kiss and this pain of LOVE and separation. This movie makes you cry in the same way Titanic did.
I mean how could it get even more romantic like it did in this movie. Christopher Reeves , Christopher Plummer and Jane Seymour excelled in it.
Somewhere in time is my best romantic movie I have ever watched. I have some questions though : I still don’t understand how did Elise know that Reeves came from 1980? And where did the watch come from? The coin that made Reeves return to future remained with him, which means that Elise did not see the coin. So how did she know who he was? How did Robinson (Plummer) know about Reeve’s coming to change Elise’s life?
The most touching part was the end of the movie where Reeves smiled while he was dying . May his soul rest in peace .
