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.


  • If the Coen Brothers were Romanian, they might have made 'The Whistlers', which is a way of explaining why I like it.A.O. Scott, The New York Times
