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.
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.
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.
