Atom Egoyan himself stars as a Canadian photographer sent to Armenia to take pictures of historic churches for a calendar commission in this haunting, beguiling and meditative romantic drama. Taking along his Armenian wife as a translator, the couple’s relationship begins to unravel as she becomes more and more drawn to her ethnic roots and to their local guide. A bold, precise and sometimes painfully honest depiction of love, loss and the strange twists of fate that life leads us on, Calendar is one of Egoyan’s most accomplished and celebrated works.
