Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

Like so many other people, I enjoy watching films that stimulate my mind, and actually give me some type of knowledge by the end.
Zed(Eric Stoltz)comes to Paris to participate in a bank robbery with his friend Eric(Jean-Hugues Anglade) who he has not seen in eleven years.
Bryan A. Pfleeger
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.

All those who think it's just another Tarantino rip-off should know that both directors worked together in the same video store before making it big, were co-writers on Pulp Fiction and basically have helped each other out on several projects. It's just that Tarantino made his name first that everyone assumes Avary's work is copying it. Not true. This movie is amazing! The acting is superb - Jean-Hughes Anglade gives the most charismatic performance I've ever seen. It's shot brilliantly starting with neutral shades, to the blue night club scene and finally descending into the red bank scenes that symbolize Eric's own demented and violent mind. Been scapegoated for Hollywood's violence, really no more than tons of other flicks - I think the violence embedded in Eric's mind is what makes it seem so disturbing, not the actual physical violence. Julie Delpy and Eric Stoltz also give maybe their best performances to date. See this many times!!!

Some ultra-vi movies, like "Reservoir Dogs" and "True Romance," have little to commend them because the vi is the be-all and end-all. "Killing Zoe" brackets the violence with humor and mania, resulting in a very interesting movie. Eric Stoltz plays Zed, a US safecracker just arrived in Paris for a big job with his former school buddy Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade). He has the concierge at his hotel send up a prostitute (the very appealing Julie Delpy) and they get it on tenderly, falling in love. A cliche, but nicely done. The second third is a drug binge before the big job, vaguely psychedelic and reminiscent of the New Orleans cemetary acid scene in "Easy Rider," but better done. The last and most satisfying part is the bank heist gone awry--like "Dog Day Afternoon" on speed and minus the humor, but with lots more blood. The redeeming feature is the world-beating performance of Anglade as Eric, played with manic energy, dementia and irony as things go from bad to worse. He alone is worth the price of admission, though he gets plenty of help from fine performances by Stoltz and Delpy. Look for Gary Kemp, who played Fat Ron in "The Krays," as one of the bank robbers. Definitely worthwhile.

Have you ever been somewhere and thought to yourself, this would be a great location for a film (happens to me all the time, and yet no movies have come my way)? That's what happened to producer Lawrence Bender as he was scouting locations for the 1992 Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs. He was offered the use of a bank in L.A., it didn't fit within the script, but he was able to find a story that utilized the location, and thus begat Killing Zoe (1994). In this case the script had already been written, and it just happened that most of the story takes place within a bank, so it was a match, for better or worse. Written and directed by Roger Avary (The Rules of Attraction), the film stars Eric Stoltz (The Wild Life), Julie Delpy (An American Werewolf in Paris), and Jean-Hugues Anglade (Taking Lives). Also appearing is Bruce Ramsay (Alive), Kario Salem (Nomads), Salvator Xuereb (The Doom Generation), and Gary Kemp (The Krays).

The film begins as Zed, played by Stoltz, looking much like a scruffy poster boy for the Grunge movement, arrives in Paris and hails a cab to take him to a hotel. During the cab ride, the driver offers to set Zed up with some female companionship, to which a comely woman named Zoe (Delpy) show up a few hours later. After some brief formalities (we learn she doesn't do `weird' stuff), the two further the cause for Franco-American relations, to which we learn she's just doing it for the money (duh) to pay for school. Soon Zed's French friend Eric (Anglade) arrives, and he quickly and unceremoniously ejects Zoe from the room (sans her clothes). Seems Zed has arrived in Paris at Eric's bequest, as Zed is a safecracker, and Eric has a job lined up, to take place on Bastille Day (similar to our 4th of July...look it up).

I was drawn to see this because Roger Avary was the man who came up with the idea for "The Gold Watch" segment in my favorite movie "Pulp Fiction".

I was curious to see how Roger Avary was when he worked by himself. "Killing Zoe" was his directorial debut and like almost any debut, it has its flaws. It's not a bad movie though and it's a pretty interesting movie, but dialouge over story is truly Avary's strong suit. I hate to compare anybody's dialouge (except Elmore Leonard in his books) to Quentin Tarantino's, but to make a point I must. Avary's dialouge flows like Tarantino's and it's filled with wit and humor. I laughed aloud at a couple parts, like the cat & "I can't do pee on you for 200 bucks." The first time I watched it, I wondered to myself how one of the characters in this movie could feel emotion for the person that she helps at the end after what is done to her. I don't want to say much more than that for fear of ruining the movie...But in the first few scenes between these two, it's obvious. Anyway, "Killing Zoe" begins in a cab with Zed (Eric Stoltz, who's very good here), an American in France, who's on his way to a motel. When Zed gets to the motel, he takes a shower and a prosititute shows up at his house. This prostitute is Zoe (Julie Delpy of "Before Sunset"), an art student. In a great scene, Zoe and Zed have a conversation (after sex) about why they like each other. Then, Zed's friend Eric (Jean-Hughes Anglade) shows up and tosses Zoe, naked, out of the motel. Zed does nothing, but goes with Eric to his place where they begin to map out a bank robberty that's to happen tomorrow on Bastille Day (which I've never heard of except in the song by Rush). The bank will be the only one that's open, Zed will crack the safe. Problem is, Zed is not a bad man by any standard.
