If you are a Rick Springfield this is a must have item!
You follow some of Ricks fans from US - shame them didn't choose some from Europe too - at concerts, cruise, on stage, backstage and in private.
Just the start at the doc is worth everything. It starts at Sweden Rock Festiva 2010l (which is for heavy rockers) and the audience is asked who they are going to see and one of them says every band but Rick Springfield and Rick and band takes the stage and gave a performance that rocked and blew the audience away and Rick was invited to SRF again in 2013!
That says it all!

HASH(0x9f0e993c) out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable 7 Jun. 2013
By BluntReview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Emily at BluntReview (dot)com says: Music, for some, is just a nice kind of background cacophony of notes strung together that they use to invigorate, stimulate, unwind or get through. For others, a group, or a song, absolutely grips into a part of the brain that would otherwise seek pharmaceuticals for such wild reactions of visceral happiness. The rush of endorphins creates a bond. In many cases, a loyal bond that spreads over decades - and Billboard popularity.

Being of the later group myself (I had/have"The Keiths" - Moon and Richards), I really enjoyed the look into pop star Rick Springfield's current going ons, and those who are still following his creations. Admittedly, I'd (sadly) dismissed this real talent, as a bubble gum sort of McCutey. I glanced, gave a listen, and pinned him as a marketing campaign wrapped into an - obviously - handsome shell with a perfectly sellable song or two. Well, yes, and no.

Here in An Affair of the Heart Springfield - who by the way is aging stunningly - is what every fan girl (or guy) wishes of their idols. He gets up in the rain and plays, comes down to great - even sets up cruises where he hangs out with a few die hards.

Okay, a few humbled rockers now feel safe enough to do a meet-and-greet post show, but Rick truly gets into the minutia of a few of his fans' lives.

There's not a lot of behind the façade here. He does have a `newish' memoir book, and I am guessing one would want to get that for "the dirt" so to speak. But, the film makers introduce us to a few at-every-show gals - who are happily married and very normal. They just need their fix, and will drive, fly or sail for that specialized shot. Then there is a warm Unitarian Universalist Minister who used the words and music of Springfield to bring a terrible event to pass (as much as she was able). Another, deeply devoted woman was "introduced" to Rick and his music as a `tween who was facing a surgery that would save her life or not...his music helped her cope and feel viable. Then there is the child, Dustin Walker. Rick drags a three-year-old on to his stage to sing for the crowd. They stay in touch. Now, years later, the young man is a guitar player and at 14, hits the stage to play with Rick.

You'll see the wife of thirty years, and Springfield admits he went through that rock star dick phase; she must be one helluva catch to stand by and wait for the maturity to catch up to the Adonis-y coating. But, this man has come through to the other side with - what appears to be - genuine warmth. And, he can play some rock and roll. At a rock festival concert along with Aerosmith, where even attendees had the RCA dog head tilt, Ricky came out and rocked it up. Remember he had 17 songs on the charts back when...

The documentary is touching and telling. Truly impressive for those who had the bedroom walls dressed with images of a stranger you adored without knowing exactly why as the frontal cortex struggled to settle down. And don't fear...he gets to "The Song." Jessie's Girl. One of the most memorable time snapshot singles ever made. The video for the hit now looks like the guy's a weird-o stalker re-enactment for DateLine...but dig those crazy prints and puffed up hairdos.

See this. It reminds you that beneath the music, every once in a while (unlike say ruder-than- you-could-have-ever-imagined Simon Townsend) you meet another Rick Danko sort. A creator of music that loves what they're doing, and appreciates those who give a s***.

HASH(0x9f0e9990) out of 5 stars Surprisingly Emotional! 17 July 2013
By Georgia Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
An Affair of the Heart is much more than meets the eye. This movie gives Rick Springfield's fans a glimpse in to the heart of this rock legend - which is very tender indeed - especially toward his loyal fans. Rick has matured into more than just an accomplished performer, actor, singer, artist, writer, and amazing guitar player, he has arrived at that spot in life where he loves what he does and realizes that the deep connection with his followers is the reason he continues to thrive as an artist. The tenderness with which Rick interacts with his fans explains why he continues to succeed!
One also sees Rick through the eyes of his adoring fans. Cult following would not be the correct description... but faithful and maybe a bit obsessive. Heartstrings are pulled and one can't help but laugh out loud or maybe, more appropriately, giggle like a school girl alongside some of Rick true fans.
I honestly didn't know what to expect from this movie. I loved it! Enjoyable, fun, and very touching.

HASH(0x9f0e9b64) out of 5 stars Rick is awesome and so are his fans ! 16 July 2013
By M. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was fortunate enough to see this documentary at the film festival in Orlando , Florida in April 2012. It made me smile , cry , laugh , dance , and happy. I have been a Rick fan since 1981 and I have met him several times. Last few years I have become friends with many other Rick fans. Watching this documentary makes me appreciate all these friends and Rick himself. Seeing myself in this documentary for few seconds was a lot of fun also ! Thank you Melanie and Sylvia , for making this film a reality and available for us !
