Starred In Quantum of Solace (2008)
After Bond has killed Edmund Slate in his hotel room, he takes Slates briefcase and walks outside. As Bond is walking along, a car sharply pulls up alongside where Camille hurriedly tells him to get in the car. Slightly confused, Bond gets in the car before Camille quickly drives off. As she drives along she tells him, who she thinks is actually geologist Slate, that he is late and discusses a price for classified documents she agreed to buy.
When Bond hands over the documents, Camille notices they are actually blank. Bond informs her that someone clearly wants her her dead when he finds a gun and a picture of herself hidden at the bottom of the briefcase. She pulls a gun on Bond, who easily sees the move, before jumping out of the car commenting "That wasn't very nice!". When the motorcyclist who had been following Camile and Bond shortly pulls up afterwards, he asks Bond (who also thinks is Slate) why he didn't kill her. Bond knocks him off and steals the motorbike to make pursuit.
Camille races to a nearby dockside to confront Dominic Greene who she had slept with in an attempt to gain an introduction to General Medrano. Greene suspects this was her plan all along and hands her over to the General to sweeten the deal they are planning. Bond makes pursuit and manages to rescue her and fend off Medrano's goons. He then drops off an unconscious Camille at a hotel down the river whilst he further investigates Green.
Later in the film Camille re-appears at a fund-raising party Greene is running, much to his annoyance when she costs him a number of large donations. Greene takes her aside and whilst he tries to push her over a balcony, Bond appears and saves her life once more. As they walk down the stairs, Green's henchmen Elvis follows, but is tripped up by Strawberry Fields, allowing them to leave the party without a tail.
Camille witnesses the death of Mathis, before they head off into the desert where Bond rents an old Douglas DC-3 plane. After being shot down by an enemy jet, Bond jumps out of the plane catching up to Camille who has the only parachute only moments before they hit the ground inside a sinkhole. Inside the pair learn about Green's Tierra Project, and then head back to Bonds hotel.
Later Bond and Camille track Greene and General Medrano to a hotel in the desert. Whilst Bond deals with Greene, Camille has quite a brutal fight with the General, eventually getting the upper hand and shoots him to revenge the death of her family. As the hotel collapses around them, Bond helps Camille escape before setting Greene free in the middle of the desert, miles from anywhere. He then escorts Camille to a train station where she kisses Bond and wishes he well.
Camille Montes is an interesting character, quite unlike many of the previous Bond girls to go before her. She vows revenge after General Medrano broke into her home when she was little, killing her father, and raping her mother and sister before strangling them to death. To young to prove a threat, she was left to perish in the house as it was set alight. Luckily the young Camille managed to escape, but she now bares permanent scars on her back as a memory of where the flames touched her.
A Bolivian agent, she sleeps with Dominic Greene in the hopes of getting close to General Medrano so she can extract her revenge. Clever, resourceful and certainly not afraid of a fight, Camille is fiercely independent and appears familiar with using weapons, although has never killed anyone. Initially sceptical of Bond, and indeed all men in general, her relationship starts off very frosty. However as the film progresses, the pair get together based on a common goal and is grateful of Bonds help. While the two never become intimate, Bond does help her to accomplish her ultimate agenda by the end of the film. §
