Overview

After completing Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola initially planned for his next picture to be an intimate romantic musical shot on a low budget in Las Vegas. Three years later, One from the Heart had mushroomed into a big-budget spectacular, shot on strikingly stylized sets at his newly opened Zoetrope Studio and costing a then-massive $27 million. The story concerns Hank (Frederick Forrest) and Franny (Terri Garr), a working-class couple living on the outskirts of Las Vegas; after five years together, their relationship has fallen into a rut, and they both set off in search of new partners. Hank meets up with Leila (Nastassia Kinski), a beautiful high-wire artist, and Franny has a fling with Ray (Raul Julia), a dashing actor-waiter. But Hank and Franny still love each other, and their search for romance brings them back into each other's arms. Singer/songwriter Tom Waits received an Oscar nomination for his widely acclaimed song score, performed with country crooner Crystal Gayle.

I've long been both a Tom Waits and Francis Ford Copolla fan, but prior to seeing this film I'd almost given up on musicals altogether. Copolla does a magnificent job of uniting narrative music with stunning visuals and charming performances. Initially this film recieved a lot of scornful cristicism, as often genre-bending films do. Hopefully now after 20 years we can look at it as outsiders and appreciate it for the gem that it really is. Can you think of another movie from this era that resembles it the slightest bit? Howabout another one of Francis Ford Copolla's films? Originality. That's the kind of courage we hope to see still today in Cinema, sink or swim.

There are so many misfires in 'One From The Heart' that one is instantly struck by the prospect that Francis Ford Coppola could have produced and directed such a lemon. The music is rich, in a sort of ultra vapid glossy sheen that most late 70s, early 80s soundtracks employed, but it is lacking in one memorable song. The performances by Terri Garr (Frannie) and Frederic Forrest (Hank) are...well, performances ¿ hollow, clunky dumb show that cannot buttress the gaudy trappings of an obvious set constructed to look like the Las Vegas strip. After Frannie and Hank decide to call it quits on their marriage they embark on pursuits to bag their romantic ideals. He falls for Leila (Natassja Kinski), she for Ray (Raul Julia). But are their second chances at romance genuine or have Fran and Hank left the real thing behind? Despite masterful camera work and the technological know-how of a brilliant editor, choreographer and director, the film itself only comes to life in miserable fits and lack luster sparks. This isn't a movie musical that you will always remember. On the contrary ¿ it¿s one you'd rather forget! The transfer is gorgeous - making one dwell on the fact that nothing else in the production quite lives up to the way things initially look on the screen. Colors are rich, vibrant and well balanced. Black levels are bang on and there is a remarkable amount of clarity and fine details rendered throughout. Contrast levels are beautifully realized. The audio has been remixed and cleaned up. Superbly remastered sums up this DVD experience. It¿s still an awful film, however. Extras include nearly 6 hours of incredible vintage hoopla that is almost worth your money. We get Coppola's extensive video journal of the production as well as his documentation of Zoetrope Studios. Clearly Coppola saw himself as the next David O. Selznick in Hollywood. A pity 'One from the Heart' wasn't the next 'Gone With The Wind'.
