A Delightful Romanian Twist on ‘Ocean’s 11’ Corneliu Porumboiu's enjoyable riff on the heist movie tradition has a unique hook. 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 Island to learn a secret whistling language might be just what they need to pull it off.
