Movie Info

This science fiction/fantasy is loosely based on a story by John Wyndham (best known for The Day of the Triffids). Scientist Collin (Tom Bell) stumbles across a parallel world in which President Kennedy is not shot, Vietnam hasn't happened, and Ottilie (Joan Collins), the woman he loves, dies unexpectedly of a heart condition. While he is happy enough with the rest of his new world, he can't stand by and let his true love die in his original world, and he determines to return to his own place and time to save her. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Quest for Love


An experiment gone wrong ... and a scientist finds himself in another world, one just like ours except for different occurrences (like Kennedy wasn't killed in Dallas), a parallel world. In that world he's a married man, and he falls for his wife (Joan Collins) only she's not his wife exactly. She's the wife of the other him, the one he's switched places with. So it begins like science fiction but it's actually a romance (cue the violins, cue the flowers, cue even more violins!). Can two people from different worlds find a love that can last forever? Over-the-top and dramatic, but an inoffensive offering, similar to Somewhere In Time.
