In THE WHISTLERS, not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of corruption, treachery and deception. A trip to the Canary Islands to learn a secret whistling language might just be what they need to pull it off.
Director: Corneliu Porumboiu
“A funhouse of cinematic mirrors. ‘The Whistlers’ makes reading subtitles not just vital, but fun.” — Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“If the Coen Brothers were Romanian, they might have made ‘THE WHISTLERS’.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
‘‘A daffy and dazzling crime film. Taut and constantly surprising, the film breathes new life into staid genre conventions.” — RogerEbert.com
