Not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law.

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.” — 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
