4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable June 7, 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Emotional! July 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick is awesome and so are his fans ! July 16, 2013
By M. Fox
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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Documentary July 15, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I have been a Rick Springfield fan for 32 years. I have seen this documentary several times. It really captures our connection to Rick and his connection to us, There are some wonderful stories about how he has helped his fans through some really hard times. There is even a story where one fan gives back in return. This is a must see for any Rick fan and for any non Rick fan, You will be one after you see this.
