Curling

Côté's most accomplished film to date.
-Adam Nayman, Eye Weekly
Denis Côté makes finely wrought studies of people trapped in time and space, human ciphers who are mysteries even to themselves. Curling is a stunner.
-Peter Howell, The Toronto Star

Synopsis

Set on the fringe of society in a remote part of the countryside, Curling takes a keen look at the unusual private life of a father and his daughter. Between his unremarkable jobs, Jean-François Sauvageau (Emmanuel Bilodeau) devotes an awkward energy to Julyvonne (Philomène Bilodeau). The fragile balance of their relationship will be jeopardized by some dreary circumstances.
