The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: When Tereza first gets her camera she takes photos which show Prague street life pre-Soviet invasion. So presumably it's late 1967 or early 1968. The background music is a Czech cover version of "Hey Jude" by the Beatles. This song wasn't released in the west until 1969.

Correction: Not so. The Beatles released "Hey Jude" in the summer of 1968. It was a huge hit in the West during the turmoil in Czechoslovakia. You are correct to note that the song would not have been in circulation prior to the invasion, but by the time the tanks rolled, the song was available.
