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.

Did terrible at the Box Office, it touched something in me....
Yes, this movie did absolutely horrible in theaters when it was released in 1982. I saw it about 1984 on disk (CED) and was surprised. Along with the weird lighting (it was filmed on a HUGE sound stage) and strange character reactions....something in this move touched me deeply. Along with all of it I found a kernal....a morsel......some real gem that made this otherwise trite movie quite rich. Rich enough I saw the movie again....and am considering purchase of a copy.
Apparently I am one of the 5% who actually LIKED the movie....who didn't demand their ticket money back.
We DO exist, you know....
