Denis Cote may not be interested in traditional narrative plot, but he excels at storytelling and creating disturbing levels of suspense. Perhaps the most worrying aspect of this tight little movie is the lingering awareness that what we see in "Curling" is more than likely not only possible -- something much like it is happening right now.

This is one of those obscure films that I can make no claim to understanding. I imagine the writer/director had some kind of artistic vision, and that there is some logic to the symbolism, but it totally escaped me. This loner guy, who keeps his 12 year old daughter in the house, walks the highway in winter while his daughter consorts with dead bodies in a nearby field. Finding a neighbor boy wounded on the highway, the loner guy stuffs him under a deserted motel cabin. Somewhere in the middle of the film is a curling game.

Sad, dark, cold but well made movie that makes think about life.
