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.

"The Whistlers finds writer-director Corneliu Porumboiu working in a more crowd-pleasing vein than previous efforts, with thoroughly entertaining results."  Ceritified Fresh on Retton Tomatoes

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.” - Simon Abrams,
