Trivia

The extraordinary cost of the production of this film would lead to director Francis Ford Coppola's declaring bankruptcy. Originally intended as a small film after the enormous cost, pressures and production problems of Apocalypse Now (1979), One from the Heart rapidly ballooned from a projected budget of $2 million to over $25 million. Coppola has stated that the films he made during the rest of the 1980s and most of the 1990s, such as The Outsiders (1983), The Cotton Club (1984), The Godfather: Part III (1990), Jack (1996) and The Rainmaker (1997), were done to pay off the debts incurred by the production of One from the Heart.

Goofs

Though shot inside a sound stage, the opening shot of the front of the Fremont shows a completely wet street. Though done for lighting effect, nonetheless Las Vegas gets less than five or so inches of rain a year and the rainfall that does manage to hit the ground, evaporates almost immediately. See more »

Surprisingly good!
22 April 2003 | by IlyaMauterSee all my reviews

When I went to see this movie I didn't expect much of it, but I was wrong. What we have here is a very good Francis Coppola's reinvention of a musical made in 1982. A beautifully filmed and well acted romantic film with wonderful music score and songs from Tom Waits, who was then nominated for Oscars in the Best Song category for this picture. "One from the Heart" was entirely filmed on Coppola's Zoetrope Studios, what brings to memory great movies of the Hollywood Studio Era. It really contributes perfectly to create "dreamy" mood of the film, it feels like a dream wondering through studio night Las Vegas probably as false as the real Las Vegas itself. And on this background we have a very simple and sweet romantic story of a love crisis in a relationship of a simple American couple wonderfully played by Terri Garr and Frederic Forrest. Perhaps it´s a kind of movie that you either love or hate. I loved it. 9/10
