An American safe cracker is summoned to Paris by a childhood buddy to help pull off a "can't fail" Bastille day bank robbery, but their dream of easy money quickly becomes a nightmare as his drug crazed friend looses control of the heist-and his mind-leading to a violent blood bath in the tradition of Reservoir Dogs.
From the Creators of Pulp Fiction and True Romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie is awesome Aug. 10 2006
Killing Zoe played in Seattle theaters for 1 week in August of 1994 and I managed to see it twice. This is one of my all-time favorite films and its savage critical reception has always puzzled me; I find it much more to my taste than Pulp Fiction. I think Roger Avary is one of the most gifted filmmakers to arrive on the scene in the last 20 yrs and I hope that he someday gets the recognition he deserves. Everything about this movie worked for me: the cinematography,the acting, the editing and especially the music. From the first images rushing thru the streets of Paris until the blood-soaked climax, I was mesmerized. I consider myself lucky to have seen it in theaters with a good sound system; I have queried friends who've seen it on DVD/VIDEO and they had a completely different opinion of the film because they had missed key lines of dialog that really go a long way towards investing KILLING ZOE with a certain quintessentially 90's vibe of doomed heroin-soaked romanticism, giving it deeper levels than most people are willing to admit. Without divulging too much, it's the fact that one of the character has AIDS that makes a lot of what happens later not only believable but poignant as well.

I loved this so-called "repulsive" film. I think it's really funny too, in a lunatic sort of way.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish I was Zoe! March 22 2004
By G.M
I wish I was Zoe so that someone would have killed me before I started watching this drivel.
This film was reccomended to me and all I can say is I'm glad I didn't pay to see it.
Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender produced this. I must admit, I find that very hard to believe. Not because of the slow pace, crappy story and characters (Although that is surprisng for those two) but it's the incredible lack of money that surprised me most of all. Don't get me wrong on this, I don't care if a film is made on pennies. BUT IT HAS TO BE GOOD.
Robert Rodrigiez made El Mariachi on seven thousand dollars. This looks like it was made on seven cents.
I personally think that this film was no more than one of Tarantino's old Video archives buddies asking for a bit of money to make a film. Tarantino being the nice guy that he supposedly is, not to mention a film addict, was curious to see what his friend would produce. Now it went one of two ways.
Either Tarantino and Bender gave him the money and left him to do the whole thing on his own without any tip offs, or the guy just kept all the money, went to the local supermarket to pick up a crappy video camera (cos that's what it looks like) and shot the film without a care in the world eagerly awaiting the rap party.
Anyway I f you find all this hard to believe (Just like I did) then get hold of this and find out yourself. But make sure you do yourself a favour and when you start to get incredibly bored, turn the film off. Take my advice, It doesn't get any better.
I would be surprised if Lawrence Bender and Quentin Tarantino didn't agree with me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Whipped Zed Jan. 3 2003
By A Customer
I really loved this movie but I can't quite figure out why the men in these films are always so whipped and so weak. I mean if you eliminate Julie Delpy's character from this movie then you might have a much more interesting outcome.
How about Eric Stoltz's character gets really into drugs and doesn't fall for stupid Julie cuz she is not even in the movie. Then he and the french guy make a run for it at the end after they have robbed the bank. They kill everyone and get away and then move to some country where they do drugs all the time.
You see, then they would be real criminals.
These movies always give someone who is essentially a criminal a cheap way out. I mean if he's gonna rob the bank he should not be saved just because of some lousy blonde mousy chick who works at the bank. Another killer with a conscience...it just doesn't play well with me
In real life everyone probably would have been killed. I just hate yucky love scenes between icky sweet characters who have just killed like ten people and they are covered in gore and it's all, "Oh darling, I just love you so much!!'
Ugh it's enough to make a man hurl.
Other than that I think this movie is great.
TRUE ROMANCE is much more realistic for a good criminal ROMANCE picture. This movie works completely because the french guys performance is so over the top and crazy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great crime film Oct. 14 2002
Format:VHS Tape
"Killing Zoe" has to be one the most violent films, but oddly my favorite. Its the story of an American safecracker who gets out of prison and travels to Paris to rob a bank with his French friend, Eric. There he meets a prostitute named Zoe who happens to work at the bank they rob. The robbery is one of the most bloody in movie history with them gunning down anyone that gets in the way. At first I was uncomfortable with that but the story unfolds in a way that is so compelling you can't stop watching. Jean-Hughes Anglade was incredible in his portrayal of the evil Aids stricken Eric with no respect for human life. Eric is probably the most interesting character in the film. He's so ruthless and convincing that he's the one thing that makes this movie so great.
There are also funny moments like the Billy Holiday albums, their night at the jazz club, the Viking movies and the little monkey. The movie is bizarre at times but its definitely unique.
All in all, its a great film that I watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killing Zoe ("Killing Zo") - Robbing Banks = Bad
Cinematic mastery for (at that time) first-time director. If you haven't seen it, I won't spoil it. Although, the title of this may do just that. Read more

You guys are nuts. Killing Zoe may not be the bank robbery film that Heat is, but it has many more aspects to it, namely gratuitous sex, drugs, and violence. Read more
