Somewhere in Time is murky and underwritten. The basic premise would be thin even for a Harlequin romance.

A charming, witty, passionate romantic drama about a love transcending space and time, Somewhere In Time is an old-fashioned film in the best sense of that term.

Director Jeannot Szwarc strains hard for spectacular visual effects, though he's barely able to compose a competent close-up.
