Many of the hit films from LIFF 2019 are now available to view online, across platforms including Netflix, BFI Player, Curzon Home Cinema, Amazon Prime and Vimeo.  We're keeping you updated with a guide to the latest as they become available.

This week's highlighted film is The Whistlers. A bent cop, a femme fatale, 30 million Euros and whistling take centre stage in this playful noir thriller from one of the masters of the Romanian New Wave, Corneliu Porumboiu (12:08 East of Bucharest). Corrupt middle-aged police inspector Cristi is working with the mob to try to break Zsolt out of prison in order to retrieve a large sum of money. Under tight surveillance from his colleagues, Cristi must first travel to the island of La Gomera and master the ancient whistling language so that he can communicate with the mob undetected.

'From Tudor Mircea's citrus-bright cinematography to the judicious use of Iggy Pop's sunshiney 1977 track The Passenger, everything about this comedy-drama pops and snaps.' - Guardian review by Simran Hans
