Pulp Fiction meets Romanian New Wave cinema! A delightful, stylish neo-noir thriller.

 

In a delightful twist, leading Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu, whose inventive comedies have for more than a decade brought deadpan charm and political perceptiveness to his country’s cinematic renaissance, has made his first all-out genre film – a clever and elegant neo-noir with a wonderfully off-kilter central conceit.

Easily corruptible Bucharest police detective Cristi – played by the eternally stoic Vlad Ivanov – arrives on the mist-enshrouded Canary Island of La Gomera, where he learns a clandestine, tribal language, improbably made entirely out of whistling; this form of hidden communication will keep his superiors off his trail as he becomes increasingly embroiled in a convoluted gangster scheme involving a stash of Euros hidden in a mattress and a sultry femme fatale named, of course, Gilda.
