Storyline

Ted, his girlfriend Jo, and his brother Johnny are small-time robbers in Montreal. The brothers spend their time watching TV, while Jo rereads Leonard Cohen's novel "Beautiful Losers" and attends writing classes. Luka, a Czech immigrant, picks up Jo when he sees her shoplifting. When Johnny surprises Luka kissing Jo, he attacks him. In the ensuing fight Jo accidentally kills Johnny, and Luka leaves the scene, but drops his wallet. The police assume that Luka attacked Johnny after a break-in and Jo goes along with that, but feels guilty about it. Written by Will Gilbert

Quirky treasure
7 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I came across this film, by chance, as part of the London (England) Film Festival. Wonderful low budget film about a girl's quest to become something more than just the girlfriend of a hopeless bank robber. Part chase film, part art house, it also features the much under-heralded Molly Parker.
