Set on the fringe of society, in a remote part of the countryside, “Curling” takes a keen look at the unusual private lives of a father and his daughter. Between his unremarkable jobs, Jean-Francois Sauvageau devotes excessive care to Julyvonne. The fragile balance of their relationship will be jeopardized by some dreary circumstances.
