Overview

Atom Egoyan casts himself as the lead character in Calendar. He portrays a shutterbug who brings an array of different women to his apartment. Every time one of the women makes a phone call, the character notices a calendar consisting of photographs he took while in Armenia. The film flashes back to the time he took each of the photos. Traveling through Armenia with his wife, he does not share his wife's interest in the history behind the locations he is photographing. The wife eventually leaves him, and the film ends with him attempting to end their estrangement. This project began after Egoyan, whose ancestors were Armenian, was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the Moscow Film Festival for his 1991 film The Adjuster.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chas Turner
Alternately chilling and mutedly hilarious, Atom Egoyan's Calendar is an ingenious low-budget clash of languages, relationships, and images. As usual with Egoyan, what matters less is plot - a break-up scenario between a photographer Egoyan, his wife Arsin&eacutee Khanjian and an Armenian guide Ashot Adamyan - than his means of telling it. The film pingpongs between past, where the wife's sympathy for her husband gradually, subtly shifts while touring the hallowed locations for a commissioned calendar, and the present, where the photographer sits at home and "dates" a series of multinational women. While Calendar knows resentment and frustration, the movie boils down to an almost microscopic human comedy of manners, with characters relying fraying habits and vaguely unhealthy formalities. Character names are withheld and banal rituals like writing letters, having dinner and drinking wine get edged with perversity. Egoyan is an ace at implicating viewers emotionally, stopping just short of programming feelings the way that Truffaut or Hitchcock can. The excellent DVD features include a spellbinding interview of Egoyan, who - like his movies - needs to only sit on the screen for awhile talking to be utterly fascinating.
All Movie Guide - Brian Whitener
In scene after scene, a lovely woman excuses herself on cue from the table and begins speaking on the phone in a foreign tongue. Her male companion begins to write, seemingly stimulated by the chatter. The repetition of erotic ritual plays a role in most every Atom Egoyan feature, but Calendar most thoroughly explores this wellspring. The source in this case is a calendar of photographs of Armenian churches, or, more precisely, the relationship between photographer and translator (Egoyan and Arsine Khanjian). Calendar is a tiny masterpiece with cinematography that does justice to the Armenian film which influenced Egoyan, the ravishing The Color of Pomegranates.
