One From the Heart (1982)
Critic Consensus: A misfire from director Francis Ford Coppola.
In this extravagant romantic comedy, a pair of lovers, contemptuous of their over-familiarity with each other, split up to look for greener pastures. Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola spared no expense with this film, and the production and cinematography are exquisite.

Critic Reviews for One From the Heart
A hybrid musical romantic fantasy, lavishing giddy heights of visual imagination and technical brilliance onto a wafer-thin story of true love turned sour, then sweet.
At times the project seems in danger of being scuppered by its own lavishness; the saving grace is a light heart.
There's not a moment in One From the Heart when Mr. Coppola isn't after something romantic and glorious, something inexpressibly grand. At times, he even gets what he's after.
[An] often maligned, giddy, superlative romantic musical.
A playful, delightfully unfathomable piece of magic.
Audience Reviews for One From the Heart
Notoriously expensive film is a visual fest for the eyes but the slender bones of the story that all those images rest on can't support it or hold the viewers interest. Frederic Forrest is a good actor but he wasn't cut out to be a leading man.
Gorgeous to look at, but kind of slow, but the cinematography is stunning, but it's fairly uneven, but that uneven-ness is photographed by Vittorio Storaro.
I would also like to note that it's a crime that so much of Stararo's work isn't avaliable on blu-ray.
I liked this movie for the most part, the story, sets, and songs go well together, but it could have been better.
