Silvia Grădinaru's rating of the film The Whistleblower

This brutal story poses a rather uncomfortable question: how safe are we in the hands of our guardians? Disturbing images, wonderful performances from Rachel Weisz and Vanessa Redgrave, but the most unsettling element is the fact that, although dramatised, the movie is based on real facts. Thus, after watching, there is only one more conclusion left to be drawn: life is as predictable as fiction.
