"An ingeniously structured, engaging and witty display of filmmaking skill." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

In Corneliu Porumboiu's The Whistlers, not everything is as it seems for Cristi (Vlad Ivanov), a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda (Catrinel Marlon) 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.
