Curling (Region Free)

Type: New Blu-Ray

A unique voice in contemporary cinema, Denis Côté is renowned for his unsettling, sparse and formally daring films.

Winner of the Best Director and Best Actor (Emmanuel Bilodeau) awards at the 2010 Locarno International Film Festival, Curling is set in the starkly beautiful winter landscape of rural Québec. The film portrays the strange lives of taciturn loner Jean-François and his daughter Julyvonne, who he insists should never leave their home. Their isolation, and the fragile balance of their relationship, is jeopardised by Julyvonne’s encroaching adolescence, her curiosity about the outside world and the troubling secrets they both carry.

Haunting, enigmatic and at times menacing, the film is a meditation on the universal need for human connection.
