ONE FROM THE HEART: REPRISE is a spectacular 4K restoration and reimagining of the 1982 cult classic from Francis Ford Coppola. Six minutes of footage have been added to replace the original negative, previously thought to be destroyed, resulting in a brand-new REPRISE version, approved by Coppola himself.

ONE FROM THE HEART: REPRISE tells the story of a Las Vegas couple (Teri Garr, Frederic Forrest) whose break-up on the 4th of July leads them both to a night on the strip in pursuit of their romantic fantasies (Raul Julia, Nastassja Kinski). But in this town of gamblers and dreamers should they bet it all on dreams, or give true love another roll of the dice

Featuring breathtaking design, show-stopping set pieces, the stunning photography of Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, The Last Emperor) and accompanied by the wonderful Oscar nominated* music of the one and only Tom Waits, this neon explosion of colour, sound and innovation is a cinematic valentine for all movie lovers.

"I've always loved 'One from the Heart,' despite the disruption it caused in my dreams for American Zoetrope. However, there is magic in cinema and while preparing this film for 4K, it was apparent I could refine the story. This new version is an improvement in many ways and I am proud of what was achieved with 'One from the Heart: Reprise.'"

- Francis Ford Coppola

I just watched this at a theater. It's beautiful film and the restoration appears to be really well-done. Excellent sound, and the colors, visuals, and set design are really engaging, particularly all the neon signage it features. The 1.37:1 ratio is really strange at first and I thought maybe it was just for an intro sequence like an in-film TV or theater piece, but apparently the entire film is shot in that ratio. I completely forgot about it after a couple of minutes, so it doesn't have much impact on the overall look (at least, not in a theater setting).

I'm curious about the additional six minutes of footage and also how much re-editing was done. The problem with this film (and this opinion seems to be widely shared) is the characters just aren't particularly likeable, and it's difficult to feel anything for them, so no amount of editing or additional footage is going to resolve that. I can completely understand why the film failed at the box office, especially in 1982. This movie felt like something better suited to the early-mid-1970's and must have felt like a relic already even when it was released, particularly in the wake of all the major game-changing action/adventure/sci-fi films that came out from 1977-1982. Even Harry Dean Stanton was mostly forgettable in it. That said, being a major fan of Francis Ford Coppola's work and having heard the stories about how this film bankrupted him and American Zoetrope and cast a pall over his subsequent career, I'm glad I finally watched it, esp. in a theater. It's far from a terrible film, and it's worth watching just for how interesting it is visually and for the beautiful set design. I expect I will pick up a copy of this 4K release, not least for all the extras included.
