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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

"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.
