One From The Heart 1982

Forrest Garr One from the Heart

Post Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola seemed determined to find new directions from old inspirations; his 1982 musical One From the Heart returns to the set-based musical of the 50’s and 60’s , with a Las Vegas set love story scored by Tom Waits. Hank and Frannie (Frederic Forrest and Terri Garr) are the couple on the rocks, and tightrope-walker Leilia (Nastassja Kinski) and Ray are the possible new romances against an independence day background. A maudlin musical was never likely to fire up public interest, and One From The Heart flopped; seen today, it’s a fabulous mood piece, with sensational work from Waits and some dynamic shots that boggle the brain in their artful conception.!content/38612/One-From-the-Heart
