  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Calendar

    Astucieusement construit, un film passionnant non dépourvu d'un humour discret. www.cinefiches.com

  5. José Neves's rating of the film Calendar

    Doc Lisboa 2016. Like Alain Resnais films about the revisionist impossibility of an existence in loss ("Muriel" and "Je T'aime Je T'aime"), in which the recurrence of memory movements are made of a interwoven editing, here a higher irony of a remembrance about a lost love is the revelation of a complex materiality of the narrative forms, finally realizing an unity of (the) time, that admirable disruption.

  6. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Calendar

    I loved the perspective which was quite literally photographer's one. What he says in his letter sounds so sincerely that with the help of the fact that Egoyan plays one of main roles the difference between reality and fiction gets very blurred. Using foreign languages without translation proved to be excellent way to highlight how alien all the surrounding people apart from his wife are to him

  7. Kornovska's rating of the film Calendar

    On aime particulièrement l'histoire et la perspective avec laquelle elle est filmée. En Arménie, un photographe prend en photo de magnifiques églises, accompagné par sa blonde (sa traductrice) et un chauffeur de taxi (qui lui parle des lieux historiques). Peu à peu, il capte l'effondrement progressif de sa relation, alors que sa blonde se rapproche de plus en plus du chauffeur de taxi. Film étrange et magnifique!

  8. John Leeves's rating of the film Calendar

    Cultural difference. Relationship breakdown. The passing of time. Only very occasional breaks from the rhythm, Egoyan urges the viewer into the seat of the photographer through a changing POV, a close up, and the telephone. Beautifully composed shots stand in harsh juxtaposition with the ugliness of the narrative. Interesting sound use, especially the un-subtitled foreign dialogue and the role of the answer machine.

  9. Feng Ling's rating of the film Calendar

    Very organic cinematography and atmosphere. The experimental narrative structure took a bit of time for me to accustom. But it fittingly gave a sense of clutter without distracting the viewer(listener!). Interesting discussion on themes of belonging(to a culture), closeness in relationships, and what pragmatism & sitting behind an observing lens do to us. Deserves a re-watch.

  10. Gryphonix's rating of the film Calendar

    Beautifully captures the simultaneous longing and alienation a person can feel for their country of origin.

  11. Abhi's rating of the film Calendar

    I don't what to make of this film. I am speechless. It was such an original take on relationships and missed moments. A nuanced film. Highly recommended!

  12. Ioana's rating of the film Calendar

    one of a kind torture

  13. Lior1209's rating of the film Calendar

    Seems great, but the subs don't work. I don't know Armenian, so I cannot understand anything.

  14. George B's rating of the film Calendar

  15. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Calendar

    (3.5) Intellectual exploration of love, jealousy and connections. A clever look at a relationship through the framework of a Armenian Calendar shoot. Only let down by Egoyan's acting. Dude's not an actor, but he's a wiz behind the lens.

  16. James Mackin's rating of the film Calendar

    A fascinating portrayal of the end of a relationship, and the recovery period.

  17. Marco Della Motta's rating of the film Calendar

    Clever conception but a poorly written script which at times came off as contrived, pretentious, and even laughable. Beautiful compositions and photography litter a highly formal yet ultimately insubstantial film.

  18. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Calendar

    Lovely layered film about identity.

  19. msmichel's rating of the film Calendar

    Egoyan's fifth feature made for an extremely low budget may be his most inventive and innovative film. It's structure and playfulness almost seems like deconstruction of narrative and expectation, in what is a straight forward triangle story. Made between 'The Adjuster' and 'Exotica' the film couldn't be more different then either.

  20. Dre Strangelov's rating of the film Calendar

    Formally inventive and precise filmmaking makes for a captivating exploration of the themes of desire, perception, memory, technology, history and language. Excellent pacing, beautiful composition, clever editing.

  21. David R Williams's rating of the film Calendar

    I am a fan of Egoyan’s work but have to say this left me flat. Just could not get interested.

  22. Steve G.'s rating of the film Calendar

    I liked the bit where....no I didn't.

  23. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Calendar

    This film is a real treasure. Like Godard with more warmth. A self-depreciating, yet touching meditation on filmmaking, the (inherent?) arrogance of representing others, the estrangement of filmmaker and subject, and a poetic deconstruction of the medium's manipulation of time and space, the seen and the unseen, the remembered and the missed.

  24. Sahiri Loing's rating of the film Calendar

    Intriguing plotline about obsession. Interesting choice of background music
