Storyline

The oldest daughter of an impoverished Montreal family, Monique Sparvieri vows to find a way to get out of the ghetto in which she lives. Abandoned by Michael, the love of her life, Monique finds herself alone again when her second husband, Gaston, is sentenced to ten months in prison. While many other women her age are still dreaming of Prince Charming, Monique takes her own destiny in her hands. She and her new love, Gerald Simard, plan a series of bank robberies. Intoxicated by passion and success, Monique isn't afraid of anything and she wants to make sure that her children don't experience the same miserable upbringing as she did. Written by Movie_Blitz

One of the best films ever made in Québec
31 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The star-studded cast delivers in spades and the story is perfectly rendered. This is a classic of Canadian film, better than Bonnie and Clyde. Céline Bonnier shines as Monica, more than holding her own against fellow Québec cinematic heavyweights Patrick Huard, Roy Dupuis, Marc Labrèche and omni-talented Rémy Girard. The story itself refers to real-life Québec bank robber Monica Proietti. She robbed 20 banks, mostly credit unions, of over $100,000. Her life was the subject of a 1968 musical comedy also called Monica La Mitraille. However, the 2004 film is based on a book by Georges-Hébert Germain originally called Souvenirs de Monica, written in 1997.
