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.

A flawed film, to be sure, but one certainly ripe for reexamination some 20 years on.

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.

... simultaneously ahead of its time and delightfully quaint, a simple romantic comedy that revels in the dreamy artifice of a meticulously re-created fantasy Las Vegas.

If any film from the 1980s needs to be re-examined, it's Francis Ford Coppola's One from the Heart.

This has matured over the years into a very likeable and moving romance with much to recommend it.

Perhaps next time Coppola can open his heart without losing his head.

A great big beautiful bore, ornately directed by Francis Coppola, with little charm and less meaning.

Razzle-dazzle gimmickry and photographic techniques dwarf the trivial story.
