We’ve worked with Magnolia Pictures, the distributor of THE WHISTLERS, to make it possible for you to see the film — and your ticket helps support the Belcourt. For $12, you can purchase a ticket for THE WHISTLERS — and you’ll have a 3-day / 72-hour window to watch it. (Note: You’ll be asked to create an account with Magnolia Pictures to pay for your ticket.) Magnolia Pictures will share a portion of your ticket payment with the Belcourt. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means we’re unable to offer member pricing. Thanks for your understanding and support. And if you’d like to consider an additional donation to the Belcourt, we’d be most grateful. You can do so here. Note: THE WHISTLERS is compatible with desktop, tablet, smartphone, Chromecast, and AirPlay. There are no native apps for smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV.
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 Spain’s 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, New York Times “One of the best films on view [at Cannes]. A rollicking film. A fast-paced cinephilic treat. Auteurist cinema of the best kind.” —Mark Peranson, Cinema Scope “The film is dark and it’s set in a world where you can’t trust anyone—but it’s also got John Wayne and Alfred Hitchcock homages and enough twists and turns to require a detailed scorecard… An oversized, deliciously twisted ride that runs on an endless supply of black humor and a sizable body count. You won’t laugh much while you’re watching it, but it’s a hoot nonetheless.” —Steve Pond, The Wrap
