Images Online is a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between film distributor Magnolia Pictures and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

The Whistlers

In Romanian, English and Spanish, with subtitles.

"Director Corneliu Porumboiu gives us a knotty, twisty, nifty plot that’s quite involved but hangs together well, and there’s an amusing juxtaposition of gloomy, rainy Bucharest and the sunny terrain of La Gomera. We also get a neat and unexpected coda." — The Guardian

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 the Canary Islands to learn a secret whistling language might just be what they need to pull it off.

  • Director: Corneliu Porumboiu
  • Runtime: 1 hour 37 minutes
  • Genre: Comedy, Crime

Ignore the show times. We are pleased to present The Whistlers as a part of Images Online, available April 3 through 9. Every online purchase or rental directly benefits Images Cinema.
