"One from the Heart" is a 1981 American romantic musical film directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The film stars Teri Garr and Frederic Forrest as Frannie and Hank, a long-term couple living in Las Vegas who, after a fight, decide to split up and explore new relationships.

While Frannie becomes romantically involved with a suave lounge singer (Raul Julia), Hank stumbles into the arms of a charming circus performer (Nastassja Kinski). As they navigate these new relationships, both Hank and Frannie must decide if their original love is worth fighting for.

Coppola’s extravagant visual style in "One from the Heart", featuring innovative use of miniatures and sound stages instead of on-location shooting, was ahead of its time. The film's soundtrack, composed by Tom Waits, also adds a moody and atmospheric layer to the film's narrative.

Despite its creative ambitions, the film was initially a box office flop and was met with mixed reviews, but over time has been reevaluated and is now considered an essential part of Coppola’s filmography.
