A corrupt cop, an irresistible femme fatale, a mysterious whistling language and a convoluted plan to get a gangster out of prison are the main ingredients in Corneliu Porumboiu’s critically acclaimed new film. Toning down his trademark deadpan humour in favour of a captivating heist plot involving several teams of corrupt police, the Romanian auteur has created a stylishly updated film noir. THE WHISTLERS is an idiosyncratic police thriller from the director of POLICE, ADJECTIVE and THE TREASURE (BIFF 2015).
