The title is taken from the Ted Gärdestad song of the same name, which is part of the soundtrack.
Some stock footage from the 1970s is used.
While the film mainly takes place in 1975, the title song “Himlen är oskyldigt blå” by Ted Gärdestad wasn’t released until 1993, featuring newly recorded Swedish vocals to the backing track of his 1978 song “Blue Virgin Isles”. The other pop songs are from 1975 and before, except “Young Love” by Motoboy which is played during the end credits.
