Movie Info

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; unfortunately, the film was a box-office dud and is credited for causing the demise of Coppola's Zoetrope Studios.

Audience Reviews for One From the Heart

    An overdirected and overproduced exercise of style that can be tremendously annoying with its insane excess of colors, sounds and neon signs in a fake Las Vegas that looks dated even as a satirical concept - all as an end in itself and without anything interesting or substantial to say.

    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.

    Well, there is brief nudity from Teri Garr, but otherwise you can see why this movie flopped and ruined Francis financially. It is always good to see Raul Julia though.

    I liked this movie for the most part, the story, sets, and songs go well together, but it could have been better.
