Product Description

Francis Ford Coppola's Las Vegas-set romantic musical drama. Hank (Frederic Forrest) and Frannie (Teri Garr) love each other but they feel they should find out what other lovers are like. So Hank goes off with Leila (Natassja Kinski) and Frannie pairs up with Ray (Raul Julia) but it's not long, in fact only a few hours, before Hank changes his mind and sets about winning Frannie back. The songs are written by Tom Waits and performed by Waits and Crystal Gayle.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll love it or hate it 7 Jun 2009
By John Ferngrove TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, I've just watched it again after about 15 years and I've got a lump in my throat, if a somewhat gritty, manly sort of one. I watched it with My wife and daughter and they were both mostly unimpressed. To be fair, I can see why because there are too many elements in the film that you are either going to be passionate about or else just lukewarm.

So first, the plot and emotional content. This is a film for people who've been in relationships where you each can't live with or without the other person. You try and break out, connect up with other people, but end up running back and doing it all all over again. Love at its most destructive, but also arguably at its most passionate, and able to bring a bit of poetic nobility into otherwise humdrum lives. If you've never been there, or have and don't want to be reminded, or just level headed enough to look on at such shenanigins with bemusement, then this film is not going to cut it with you, and might, as it did for my wife, just be irritating. I did have the questionable good-fortune to endure such a relationship in my younger, wilder past, and hence the lump in my throat.

Next, there is the music, it being after all a musical. The soundtrack is primarily provided by the gruff, low grumble of Tom Waits at the piano, with various degrees of support from string and classic big band elements. Some of the songs are structured as male/female dialogue with Crystal Gayle, completely severed from her customary disco context, providing a gorgeous counterpart to Waits. The lyrics are both witty and gritty, edgy and moving, about what you would expect from Waits for those that know him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart of Coppola 23 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Hard to find for many years, Coppola's 'One From the Heart' at last gets a release: a 2-disk DVD packed with extras.
After the large scale Godfather and Apocalypse Now films, the director chose to film this small musical love story of a couple, played by Frederic Forrest and Terri Garr, who have a bust up on a holiday weekend in Las Vegas. The songs by Tom Waits and Crystal Gayle give voice to the lead actors' thoughts and emotions.
The film is visually spectacular. Filmed on soundstages which include a recreation of the Strip in Las Vegas, frame after frame is beautifully composed, with Waits' jazzy score perfectly matching the neon glare of the screen. Scenes dissolve into each other with expressive lighting and scrims; the effect is theatrical and Moulin Rouge owes a lot to it. But like many musicals, its problems lie in the slender plot which allows little scope for character development. The charismatic performances of Raul Julia and Natassja Kinski in the supporting cast often hold the film together.
It is highly ambitious however, both technically and artistically. The remastered and re-edited print is a joy to behold, and the wealth of extras on the bonus disk are first rate, giving a pretty unbiased view of the troubled production and Coppola's battle to create Zoetrope Studios. For me the film is 3 out of 5 and the extras 5 out of 5. Overall 4 out of 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars I dared .. & Liked it... 24 Sep 2010
By Onibaba
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's a Francis Ford Coppola film......
That was what first interested me..

The whole film was all shot inside Coppola's Huge studio building he'd just bought,,
Some scenes show this.. (But in a good way)
Other scenes look astounding & it's hard to believe they were shot indoors!!

Having been shot like gives the film a very dreamy strange feel..
But i liked that.. "Different from reality"..

Nastassia Kinski.....
This film in my opinion shows the woman at her most Iconic...

I took a gamble & thought i'd try this dvd out as it was cheap..
And i'm glad i did.. :-)

A beautifully made and gorgeous piece of cinema. They don't make them like this anymore, tremendous use of colour! Certainly not a film for everyone but definitely one for a true cinema fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the heart 27 Aug 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you love Tom Wait's voice, this vision is the 3D version of it,beautifully shot with a sound track that russles the heart strings and a story to warm the cockles of even the coldest heart, for all us romantics who pretend to be sceptics...
'Shovels of shot glass, dig your own hole, bury what's left of your miserible soul' as Tom would say

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime and ridiculous 16 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
If it's story you want, this film may not be for you. There's not a lot of story here. If it's impressionism you want then this is a great impression of a moment. Don't take it too literally and you have a sublime emotional journey through the souls of two simple and likable people. I loved it. It could easily be the most simple story in the world but it's infused with a gentle symbolism that gives it more to enjoy. Coppola fans may wonder where the rest of the signature characteristics are. Fans of tricky camerawork and lighting symbolism will be pleasantly surprised.

An unusual film, a masterpiece from Francis Ford Coppola. The music from Tom Waits is magical (and unique). The DVD is packed with extras.
