In this Romanian neo-noir thriller from acclaimed auteur Corneliu Porumboiu, 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. In Romanian, English, and Spanish with subtitles. (97 mins)

“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
