The path John and Yoko are seen walking down during the opening scene (and the first notes of Imagine) is the path leading up to their British home at Tittenhurst Park. They would move to New York shortly after they had filmed that sequence. See more »

YOKO ONO
23 October 2004 | by (Lille, France) – See all my reviews

Although many people don't like IL' Yoko, "Imagine" should be seen. The famous 'chess scene' was the inspiration for the Austin Powers II bit and Yoko and John amuse throughout. Notable are shots where the two row in a boat with one oar, listen to stone monuments with stethoscopes, climb to the top of their mansion to look at a glass box, get lost in the fog, play one shot of pool shrouded from head to toe, and otherwise reenact just about every piece in Ono's masterful text "Grapefruit." Including 'Smoke Piece':

Smoke everything. Including your pubic hair.

1962 Spring.
