Somewhere In Time [1980] (* * * * *)

This sci-fi is a different version of reincarnation, but interesting nonetheless for being a fine romance. Usually christian movie makers have a great resistance to the idea of being born again, so this is believable for their audiences.

A man goes back in time by just hypnotizing himself and meets the woman he loved 80 yrs before. Its been a long time since I saw a Christopher Reeves movie and Jane Seymour is lovely in it. Well worth watching for the psychic implications of time travel - they meet again as an old woman and a young man. I've always wondered at how love seems timeless and seems to stretch from one lifetime to another - this movie captures that seamless feeling with some of the 80s ideas on memory recall and time. Very nice.:)
