In Corneliu Porumboiu's (12:08 East of Bucharest, Police Adjective) new film, not everything is as it seems for Cristi (Vlad Ivanov, 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, AND 2 DAYS), a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda (Catrinel Marlon) 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. In Romanian & Spanish with English subtitles.
