Earlier this week, we watched Somewhere in Time (with Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer). Dear husband and I had seen this years ago, and I remembered liking it (at least for the most part).
The performances by all three actors are excellent, though Christopher Plummer always stands out in whatever he does. The movie is a romance, but not a usual one - for reasons which I won't describe because that would give away the movie. The movie gradually unfolds with beautiful scenery and interesting characters (but if you want a fast paced time travel movie, you won't just be disappointed, you'll be pulling your hair out).
The eighteenth variation from the Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini by Rachmaninov runs through the entire movie, and has been running through my mind, off and on, ever since. It's a beautiful, very romantic, piece of music. Rachmaninov himself said, about the eighteenth variation, "This one is for my agent." Here is a YouTube video of part of a performance of Mikhail Pletnev playing the Rhapsody. The eighteenth variation is the first one on the video.
