  • Francis Ford Coppola directed this experimental musical about love in Las Vegas. Shot entirely at Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, the film stars Frederic Forrest (Hank) and Teri Garr (Frannie) as an unhappy couple breaking up on their five-year anniversary. Frannie is courted by a piano player/waiter, Ray (Raul Julia), who promises to take her away on a much-needed vacation. Hank and his friend Moe (Harry Dean Stanton) encounter a beautiful circus performer, Leila (Natassja Kinski), who Hank manages to get a date with. The two couples dance their way through the streets of Las Vegas on Fourth of July evening to the songs of Tom Waits, sung by Crystal Gayle and Waits. But Frannie and Hank find it hard to forget each other, and the mood and music of the film lead the couple toward melancholy romances. In the controlled studio environment, Coppola was able to use video as an innovative aid to filmmaking and postproduction.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A hybrid musical romantic fantasy....[With] giddy heights of visual imagination and technical brilliance..."

    "...Yet another innovative, audacious effort from the director of THE GODFATHER and APOCALYPSE NOW..."
    New York Times

    "ONE FROM THE HEART belongs on the top shelf with Coppola's triumphs rather than in his back drawer of oddities."
    Film Comment

    "[With] visuals to die for....[And] Garr's best lead performance."
    USA Today

    "Making this underappreciated 1982 musical, Francis Ford Coppola developed prototypes for many of the state-of-the-art filmmaking devices used today."
    Rolling Stone

    "This hyper-real Vegas is dizzying to behold, its colour wheel spun by the music's bitter-sweetness..."
