  • If we subscribe to the idea that the profiteering of man leads to the death of an absent God's morals, the unrest of Almanac of Fall lays down the first stones.

  • The mise en scene often seems to be composed in counterpoint to the action, but the drama itself (whose Strindbergian power and sexual conflicts are realized with an intensity and concentration that suggests John Cassavetes) carries plenty of charge.

  • Throughout, Tarr seems exasperated by the capacity of each to believe that they are justified in their machinations, and in his inability to accept their individual actions, he seems to be expressing disgust and outrage at all of society.

  • A claustrophobic tale of an elderly mother, her son, a nurse, a lodger, and the nurse's boyfriend living in the same apartment.

Audience Reviews for Almanac of Fall

  • Jun 28, 2015
    The gorgeous cinematography and mise-en-scène bring to mind Tarkovsky's works, while the uncomfortable narrative is centered on a group of petty characters who manipulate one another in ways that bring to mind Fassbinder, and so the result is something quite different from Tarr's previous films.

    Sublimely intelligent examination of close relationships and their abrupt destruction provoked by irresponsibility. Tarr's masterful gloominess and camera management helps an intoxicating aura of tension to arise and suffocate a set of defenseless characters. Mihály Vig's absorbing score is genius. What is most admirable about this film is its accuracy at stripping down those fears that only people that have deep relationships can understand, and those that are difficult to put into words. 99/100
