About the Movie

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A bleakly allusive look at frozen lives, "Curling'' is very much a specialty item - a movie that goes nowhere slowly.
Rotten: No fan of linear narrative, intent only on revealing things through a glass darkly, writer-director Denis Cote wants us to be puzzled. He succeeds rather too well.
Fresh: "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.
Fresh: 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.
