Storyline

Selected for official competition at this year's Cannes Film Festival, new Corneliu Porumboiu movie is a crime noir drama with a black comic twist, exactly the deadpan tonal mix that festival audiences adore. Not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarked by the  beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of treachery and deception. A secret whistling language spoken on the Spanish island of La Gomera might just be what they need to pull it off.

About the director

Corneliu Porumboiu was born in 1975 in Vaslui. He studied film at the I.L.Caragiale University in Bucharest and received his degree in 2003. He made his first short film, GRAFFITI, in 2000. In his first feature film, 12:08 EAST OF BUCHAREST, Porumboiu offers a very humorous view of Romania’s 1989 revolution. The film was presented in Cannes at the Directors’ Fortnight in 2006 and won the Caméra d’Or. Corneliu Porumboiu carried on subtly combining his work on cinematic form with a dissection of the Romanian society in POLICE, ADJECTIVE, selected for Un Certain Regard in 2009 (Jury Prize and Fipresci Prize).
