NEW YORK (December 15, 2023) — Award-winning New York-based specialty distributor Rialto Pictures is bringing a brand-new 4K restoration of Francis Ford Coppola’s ONE FROM THE HEART to theaters on January 19, 2024. This new REPRISE cut was supervised by Francis Ford Coppola (The GodfatherApocalypse Now) and will be released in New York and Los Angeles before rolling out to additional cities across the U.S. StudioCanal and Park Circus will be releasing the film in cinemas and home entertainment in the UK and Germany in early 2024. 

The REPRISE cut boasts never-before-seen footage, brand-new titles taken directly from the original camera negative, and over 19 minutes of footage replaced with new source scans. Starring Frederic Forrest (The ConversationFalling Down), Teri Garr (Tootsie, Close Encounters of The Third Kind), Raul Julia (Kiss of The Spider Woman, The Addams Family), Nastassja Kinski (Tess, Paris, Texas), Lainie Kazan (Beaches, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Harry Dean Stanton (Repo Man, Escape From New York), the film boasts an iconic soundtrack by Tom Waits featuring Waits and vocalist Crystal Gayle, which was nominated for Best Soundtrack at the Oscars®, and choreography by none other than the legendary Gene Kelly.

“I’ve always loved ‘One from the Heart,’ despite the disruption it caused in my dreams for American Zoetrope,” says Coppola. “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.’”

Hank (Frederic Forrest} and Frannie (Teri Garr) argue while celebrating their fifth anniversary. Yearning for a life of excitement and romance, Frannie fears that she is wasting her life on a man who shows no interest in her dreams of traveling to far-off places. The argument escalates and they break up. Heading in separate ways and taking to the streets, they both meet and spend the night with strangers. Hank with the seductive Leila (Nastassja Kinski) a runaway circus performer, and Frannie with Ray (Raul Julia), a handsome waiter who moonlights as a cocktail pianist and singer. After another show-down, Frannie says that she is leaving Hank for Ray and that they plan to escape to Bora Bora. Hank follows her to the airport in a last-ditch attempt to win her back.

“Of all the films in our library, ‘One From The Heart’ was the one I was most excited to restore. After 40 years, we can finally give the film the presentation it deserves,” says James Mockoski, Film Archivist/Restoration Supervisor for American Zoetrope.

The restoration, supervised by Francis Ford Coppola, was made in 4K by American Zoetrope and Roundabout Entertainment in the US. The 4K scans were lifted from the original camera negative, and great efforts have been made to add thirteen minutes of original camera negative, restoring opticals and dupe negative. The restoration was approved by Coppola himself, as six minutes of IP were added to replace the original negative that was thought to be destroyed in a flood in Rome where the negative was kept.
