After Cannes 2019′ success, Corneliu Poromboiu brings his La Gomera at the 37th Torino Film Festival in the Festa Mobile section. Accompanied by his “dark lady” Catrinel Marlon, the rumenian director reveal the genesis of the film and the idea of building a film around “silbo”, a strange and whistled language people speak in a small island close to Tenerife, La Gomera. By homaging the classics of the thriller and noir genre, Poromboiu creates a neo-noir film with a touch of irony and comedy.

La Gomera: A corrupt Romanian policeman is in a big mess; he travels to a small island in the Canaries (the one in the title) in the company of a femme fatale to learn a strange language made of whistles which he intends to use as a code during a crime. The craftiest and most ironical director of the Romanian Nouvelle Vague creates a surreal, noir, and melodramatic comedy with masterly disenchantment, framing his story with music that ranges from The Passenger to the Radetzky March.
