The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
ROMANIA, France | 97 minutes | 2019
Critics’ darling Porumboiu (12:08 East of Bucharest, Infinite Football and Police, Adjective) is having some fun — and taking us along for the ride. This deadpan musical neo-noir that relishes turning the genre’s tropes on their head is about a bent cop who has to learn el silbo, the whistled register of Spanish used on the Canary Island of La Gomera, to pull off his next crooked cash-generating venture. A tongue-in-cheek plunge into the labyrinthine underworld of the whistling bandits (yes, they exist and yes, they’re just as badass as the rest), it’s an enjoyable riff on a well-loved genre. Like Tarantino with a delightfully eccentric Romanian twist.The film will be screened in its original version with french subtitles on October 12th and with english subtitles on October 14th"An elegant and stylishly crafted piece of entertainment."
