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>

Danish director Kaspar Rostrup has directed an excellent film about love and marriage.
1 May 2013 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Most love stories made for cinema depict what happens in the lives of lovers before marriage.This is done by showing scenes of happiness or hardships.Films about lovers who were once married can rightly be called love stories about married people as they create two separate lives for lovers;one before marriage where love develops and a different life for lovers after marriage where they might or might not be able to continue their love.Memories of a marriage/"Dansen med Regitze" is one such film which reveals itself as a good blend of lovers' past and present lives. In this film,past and present lives of its main characters make a lot of sense as they are presented through many dream like situations wherein Danish actors Ghita Nørby and Frits Helmuth pour all their emotions in scenes of fight,frustration,happiness and togetherness.This film is based on a famous Danish novel written by Martha Christensen. The tone of the film is simple and there are plenty of daily life scenes which suggest that family is the most important unit for lovers who have decided to tie the knot.
