Nitro is a 2007 Canadian action film. Directed by Alain Desrochers, the film stars Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge as Max, a former drag racer who is forced to return to his criminal past when his girlfriend (Myriam Tallard) requires a heart transplant. The film also stars Lucie Laurier as Morgane, a female drag racer who assists Max in his quest to locate a suitable organ for his girlfriend's surgery.
The film, which has not yet opened in English Canada, ranked #5 in national box office on its first weekend just on the strength of its $700,000 opening in Quebec. Within Quebec, the film outsold both Live Free or Die Hard and Ratatouille.
