This is the story of an ordinary young camerawoman who lives a boring life in Paris. She happens to meet a band of gangsters she becomes friend with and starts living their life between hold-ups, sex and money. Marie Gillain is very touching in that role where she managed to be thrilled by this exciting and dangerous life and at the same time not affected at all by the criminal nature of her acts. This movie could have just been another gangster story and this is exactly where you're being tricked into a totally different outcome. Very simple and even maybe a little bit silly, her role as a gangster is interesting and well played. The more you watch the more you start wondering why she is doing all that for and who she truly is. A stunning movie on a subject difficult to deal with if you don't want to be too cliché. A must see
