Movie Info

Director Denis Côté (Carcasses) steps behind the camera once again for this disturbing, often shocking study of a family in crisis. Jean-François (Emmanuel Bilodeau) is a fortysomething single father in a rural Quebec town; he's divorced from his ex-wife Rosie, who now bides her time in jail for an unspecified crime. Their daughter, Julyvonne (Philomene Bilodeau), is 12 years old and has a most unconventional lifestyle: instead of sending her to school, Jean-François keeps her at home while he's

"Curling" is, in part, a film about secrets. Maybe we know what's going on, maybe we don't. That subtly unsettling ambiguity is yet another thing that makes this beguiling film so enticingly different.

A bleakly allusive look at frozen lives, "Curling'' is very much a specialty item - a movie that goes nowhere slowly.

No fan of linear narrative, intent only on revealing things through a glass darkly, writer-director Denis Côté wants us to be puzzled. He succeeds rather too well.

Curling begins strongly, with visually striking imagery, but ultimately never reach the potential which is hinted at in the opening scenes.

A slow burn that respects the audience's literacy.

It remains a mysterious, open film, uncluttered by any of the reassuring revelations or explanations that might console us and allay our fear of anything really imaginary.

Their relationship may be fractious, abusive and negligent, but aside from the bizarre scenarios the [father and daughter] finds themselves in, it's not all that unusual. Most of all, it feels loving. And you always hurt the ones you love.

The director sets a mood that is at once bleak and yet teems with dark, wild impulses that range from the carnal to the murderous.

If you're feeling particularly depressed and existential, this might pass as food for thought. Otherwise, it might be wiser to just plain pass.
