Product Description

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.

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.

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 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.

"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.

I'm giving this film 5 stars despite some small things some folks would consider flaws in the film. I am still giving it 5 stars because it happens to be a film I keep watching over and over again, and I never get tired of a single scene in the whole flick.
Jean-Hughes Anglade and Eric Stoltz are perfect together as old childhood friends out to rob a Federal bank in France on Bastille Day.
Here are the reasons why I love this movie. It really has a lot packed into it. It has a ton of humor, though much of it is dark humor. The extended drug use scene and tour of Paris must be about as close as you can come to honestly portraying being high on film. The pace of the action never slows down, and each scene consistently draws me in. There are a whole bunch of little original ideas and surprises thrown in that makes the film always interesting.
Memorable moments: the dead cat in the hallway, "riding the dragon", the monkey and Billie Holiday, viking films, Ron Jeremy, the ex-con joke, Eric pondering the next move.....
If you like anything by Tarantino, then you owe it to yourself to check this out. Honestly, I come back to watch this far more often than I do anything by QT.

Killing Zoe is one of the best, if not the best bank robbing movies ever! There are many memorable lines, and characters. ...Julie Delpy is an absolute hottie! It sure helps out when she can speak french. Oh la la. About half the dialogue is in French which helps you get into the movie as well as the characters. (believe it or not.) The movie is made by the same people who "brought you" pulp fiction and resevoir dogs. But you know what, that shouldn't be the only reason to pick up this dvd, c'mon man, the movie is just so entertaining. The movie is on the same level as resevoir dogs and pulp fiction, if not better. (It wasn't directed by Tarrentino). All the characters in the movie are fun to watch. Each character has at least one line they say that you probably will be repeating tomorrow. Great writing often makes great movies. And great writing is what this movie has. Killing Zoe just oozes out that coolness. The DVD has no deleted scenes, out takes or any of that extra stuff really, but this movie is still a definite must own.
