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>

Movie of a Lifetime
21 March 1999 | by (Roskilde, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Ghita Nørby and Frits Helmuth in their roles of a lifetime. This movie shows, what the couple goes through during their marriage. From the mother who demands that they get married to the troubles of unemployment. This picture must be seen, at least if you come from Denmark. It's a classic picture. A 100 % must-see!!!
