Storyline

Karl Åge and Regitze host a summer garden party for close friends, their son, and his family. Karl Åge is quiet, detached; Regitze is spirited, lively. He thinks back: love at first sight during the war, living together unmarried, her mother's hunger strike when they won't baptize their son. Regitze is passionate and forthright; she speaks her mind. He remembers her inviting a derelict for Christmas dinner, and the man shows up with five bashful friends. He recalls her taking on their son's teacher when the man slaps the lad. He remembers her love of dancing and his fear that his social clumsiness might end their relationship. Now, in twilight, he has other things to face. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a good flick that seems so real
26 July 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was not as overwhelmed with sadness as some of the other IMDb posts indicate they were. Yes, there are some sad elements to it, but all in all, there's much more to the movie than sadness. It's the story of a couple from the time they met until the present as shown through flashbacks the husband sees as he thinks about the many years they've had together. It is interesting to watch and seemed so very real--like this is a couple we all might know. What I also liked was how the mother-in-law was portrayed--and ultimately how her daughter, despite her protests, became just like her over time! While not the very best Danish film I have seen (that honor goes to "Festen"; also known as "The Celebration"), it is excellent in all facets.
