Product Description

Product Description

From the director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now comes a different kind of love story... Legendary director Francis Ford Coppola shines his spotlight on a Las Vegas couple (Teri Garr, Frederic Forrest) whose break-up on the 4th of July leads them both to a night on the strip in pursuit of their romantic fantasies (Raul Julia, Nastassja Kinski). But in this town of gamblers and dreamers should they bet it all on dreams, or give true love another roll of the dice? Featuring breathtaking design, show-stopping set pieces, the stunning photography of Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, The Last Emperor) and accompanied by the wonderful Oscar® nominated* music of the one and only Tom Waits, this neon explosion of colour, sound and innovation is a cinematic valentine for all movie lovers.

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.

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.

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

it does not matter if this is from "legendary director" of Apocalypse now and the Godfather: this movie is a waste of time. Worn out story (couple drifting apart, then getting together in love), poorly acted, no shining spot (apart from N. Kinsky lingerie), only worthwhile part is the music by Tom Waits (that however does not always matches the movie) and the picture, with very nice shots and colour effects (well, it has been all taken in studios, so lights can be arranged and reproduced at will). Forget it, and buy the soundtrack instead.

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.. :-)

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 Jan. 2007
Format: DVD
A huge roll of the dice that wiped out Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope studio and saw him spending the next decade churning out pictures to pay off the debts the $28m flop left him with, One From the Heart is one of those films I really want to like - to love, even - but which just won't let me. Visually it's a triumph, but the Tom Waits suicide blues score rarely works as a screen musical and as a human drama its kept firmly on the ground by the fact these characters just aren't likeable. Coppola seems more interested in his lavish studio settings than what's happening in them, with even the most mundane sequences shot like an imaginatively staged theatrical musical with intricate shifts of lighting and colour, dissolving walls and neon dreams. But perhaps the biggest problem of all is that Coppola doesn't seem to have made this film for the audience but for himself, and so it probably never connects with anyone not on his personal wavelength. The trailers give away a big part of the problem: the 1982 release stresses the Godfather and Apocalypse Now as evidence of Coppola's genius while the 2003 reissue trailer runs off a list of critical superlatives in a sternly unemotional voice: joy isn't on the menu here.

That the story is so simple as to be almost invisible - a couple split up over the 4th July weekend and become involved with new partners - needn't be a problem: after all, three sailors on furlough looking for Miss Turnstiles or a backwoodsman convincing his six bachelors to kidnap six local girls to marry aren't exactly complex. With good casting, good writing and good musical numbers, there's no real reason it shouldn't work. Unfortunately it doesn't get them.
