Lagu Kenangan ("Song of Memories") is a 1953 Indonesian film directed by L. Inata (id) and produced by Djamaluddin Malik for the Persari Film Corporation. Starring Titien Sumarni and AN Alcaff, it follows the domestic troubles of a composer and his wife.


The composer Supardi lives with his wife, Surjati, and their two children Janti and Janto. The couple often fight owing to Supardi's late hours, as he does his best work at night when the children are sleeping. Things escalate to the point that Surjati takes Janti and leaves. This separation nearly ends in divorce, but eventually with the support of their parents Surjadti and Supardi are able to reconcile.[1]


Lagu Kenangan was produced for Persari Film Corporation by Djamaluddin Malik.[2] The film was one in a long line of commercially oriented ventures which had been produced by the company starting with Sedap Malam in 1950.[3] This black-and-white film was written and directed by L. Inata (id), who joined Persari shortly after completing Pahit-Pahit Manis for their competitor Banteng Film.[4]

The film starred Titien Sumarni and AN Alcaff. They were supported by Mien Sondakh, M. Budhrasa, Sjamsu, Ramlan, and Djauhari Effendi.[1]


Lagu Kenangan passed the censorship bureau in 1953,[1] and was rated for viewers aged 13 and up. Screenings are reported as early as 14 August, at the Rivoli Theatre in Jakarta.[5] The film had reached Malang, East Java, by 7 November 1953. For its run there at the Atrium Theater, it was advertised as a "charming, sad, funny and replete with melodious songs" ("menawan hati, sedih, lutju, dan diringi dengan njanjian2 jang merdu").[6] Lagu Kenangan was screened as late as August 1955.[7]
