Before there was Moulin Rouge, there was One From The Heart - the whimsical musical romance from director Francis Ford Coppola.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely better than critics' convention wisdom January 8, 2004
I just saw this at the Castro Theater in San Francisco, where probably the worst dog of a movie would seem great, but this was very enjoyable. I loved this movie when it came out in 1982 or thereabouts and could never figure out why critics blasted it so unfairly. Coppola had worked himself into a persona non grata in Hollywood; the critics were mouthing that hatred--that's all I could figure.
Seeing it now, this would probably fall into the "art film" category, but it features some great dialogue and compelling performances by Forrest and Garr, with Raul Julia and Natassja Kinski playing more ethereal roles. Kinski is filmed beautifully. It's a beautiful film, period. The music and Vegas sets are wonderful. You miss it as soon as it's over.
Rich and visually exciting...perhaps not 5 stars, but then again this film just doesn't conform easily to any rating system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore Robert Horton's review. This is a great film. February 8, 2004
I'm only reviewing this in case somebody has read Robert Horton's review and has made a decision based on what was written. In fact if he hadn't said how great the soundtrack was I would have seriously wondered about his capabilities as a critic. I saw this film when it was released and as yet have not seen the dvd but I saw the film twice in one week and absolutely loved it. I disagree with pretty much everything Mr Horton says. The performances are great and the film carries so much warmth and beauty I find it strange as to what some people want from a 'love story'.
I'll tell you where I think the negative reviews come from. The film is ambitious in its' production and was very innovative and some just can't handle that. And people like to pidgeon-hole actors, directors, songwriters, bands etc and probably had a hard time figuring out what Mr Godfather was doing directing a love story. Well that is their problem.
If you like beautiful movies this is a must. If you don't your name is probably Robert Horton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still amazing after all these years February 7, 2004
If a piece of art is measured by its influence, One From The Heart rates on top. This is pure american movie art, something that get's harder to see every year. It's the result of a man's dream.
Along with The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, One From The Heart beautifully illustrates the behaviors, relations and also how beautiful and pleasant a cinema session can be. Unfortunatelly it was way ahead of its time.
I won't comment the storyline as you can read about it on others reviews.
How's this DVD? Image - 9, Sound - 10.
If I were Mr. Coppola I'd have presented this piece of art lover's with a "Director's Version", including the deleted scenes, along with the original version. They add a lot to the story and since this is DVD, additional minutes wouldn't hurt anyone. This is the only reason why it's not receiving 5 stars. The soundtrack is not DTS but it's nice and clear. The extras add a lot to the understanding of Mr. Coppola's passion, fight for this movie and its commercial "failure".
A movie like this happens only once in a lifetime. It took me 20 years to see something somewhat similar - Moulin Rouge. And Baz Luhrman assumes he had great influence from it.
Those who love cinematography, art direction, touching soundtracks, and once in a while like to fall in love must reserve a place for this loving piece of art in their DVDs collection. Go for it and you'll understand from every scene why it is "One From The Heart" of Mr. Coppola.

5.0 out of 5 stars a mood piece more than a movie January 17, 2007
Like the real city of Las Vegas, you have to be in the right mood to allow yourself to sink beneath the flashy, dazzling, and artificial veneer that made up this dream-like cinematic mood piece. You have to let go. Stop thinking about why the hell would Francis Coppola made a movie like this. Stop thinking about the almost absurd acting and outsider-art like directions. Go chug down that two finger of bourbon, and sink into the neons. Which mood am I talking about exactly? I think looking at the DVD cover or listening to the nocturnal soundtracks done by the unlikely duo of Tom Waits and Crystal Gayle gives you a pretty good idea. It's not exactly fancy-pants snobby cinematic high art, but it has more of a three AM Fremont Street on a cold winter night kinda feel to it. This movie is jazzy, smoky, humorous (in a midnight carnival type of way), and there is a nary sense of melancholy to it. On that note, I think nobody but Tom Waits could have done the scores for a film like this. I love this movie and almost everything about it - the first time I watched it and ever since.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some things take time to grow on you. February 26, 2004
By A Customer
Sure, ONE FROM THE HEART basically has little more than atmosphere for a story-line, but so what? It's meant to be a confection, Coppola's homage to the old-style silver screen musicals which pulled out every cinematic stop they could to draw you in and win you over. ONE FROM THE HEART doesn't quite rise to the best of that genre (FOOTLIGHT PARADE, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN), but it certainly holds it's own with Martin Scorsese's NEW YORK, NEW YORK and Bob Fosse's ALL THAT JAZZ, other films that are as much about the "magic" of film as they are about entertainment. Plus, hey, it's a sappy love story; if that's not your idea of a good evening at the movies, fair enough, but you'll rarely see a sappy love story told with so much class. Tom Waits' songs are the glue holding ONE FROM THE HEART together and his duets with Crystal Gayle are sublime.
As others have mentioned, Baz Luhrmann borrowed more than a little from ONE FROM THE HEART when he made MOULIN ROUGE. Suffice it to say, then, that if you liked MOULIN ROUGE, the chances you'll like the movie that influenced it at least as much, if not more.
