"A playful, delightfully unfathomable piece of magic." - Desson Thomson, Washington Post

"At times the project seems in danger of being scuppered by its own lavishness; the saving grace is a light heart." - Kevin Jackson, Time Out

Maligned by critics upon its release and a financial disaster for Columbia Pictures, Francis Ford Coppola’s ONE FROM THE HEART was given the dreaded distinction of “flop.” With this stunning 4K restoration, which premiered at the 2023 Venice Film Festival, Coppola’s modern musical fantasy is deserving of fresh consideration. Filmed entirely on an intentionally visible soundstage, implementing ingenious editing techniques and set to the soundtrack from Tom Waits, the story of two lovers navigating a breakup plays out against a spectacularly neon-lit Las Vegas and is a testament to the auteur’s innovative vision. Film Center exclusive.
