This film was filmed in 1971 and released in '72. It was originally made for television, as essentially a promo of John's album, "Imagine", with some songs of Yoko's included from her album, "Fly" (fantastic album, by the way). It also has some little fantasy parts where they are shown doing stuff, for example, there is one scene where a succession of men (ranging from Lennon and Ono's assistants to celebrities including Fred Astaire, Jack Palance, Dick Cavett, and even George Harrison) escort Ono over and over through a doorway; in another, John and Yoko lose each other on the Tittenhurst grounds, and go looking, and another where John and Yoko go around town with a stethoscope, listening to various things with it such as trees, cars and the ground. Each song has it's own "act" so to speak, with different things happening in the film for each, but they still are all connected. There isn't really any plot, but it is a very interesting film, because it has a lot of depth, and there is a lot of interesting parts of the film that are very metaphorical. Each film for each song really expresses the feelings of that song quite well, the "Imagine" scene expresses the reflectiveness of the song, while the "Crippled Inside" song reflects the stifled frustration that the song represents. The "Don't Count The Waves" scene represents the interplay and roles of the man and the woman in the world. If you haven't seen this film yet, I suggest you do. Not only if you are a fan of John of of Yoko, but because it is a film that expresses some interesting views and feelings in a very interesting way. Originally, the film was 70 minutes long, with Yoko's songs "Mind train" and "Midsummer New York", and half of "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier Mama" kept on. (these were cut from the VHS of the film) Most of it was filmed at their home, Tittenhurst Park, in Ascot, England. Its is not simply a collection of home movies put to the songs from Imagine. It was made with the intention of it becoming a film.
