In Killing Zoe, American safe-cracker and ex-con Zed (Eric Stoltz) arrives in Paris to rob a bank on Bastille Day, but before he meets the team, Zed spends $200 for a night with Zoe (Julie Delpy), an angelic, nymph-like prostitute. But their post-coital morning is rudely interrupted by the arrival of Zeds partner in crime, his childhood friend Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade), who throws Zoe out like a disposable plastic doll.

On the eve of Bastille Day, Zed finally realises his French connection doesn't believe in advance planning. Instead, Eric and his team, a group of drug-addicted pinheads initiate a non-stop, pre-heist round of drinking, heroin-shooting and pill-popping. From the look of things, they may never pull this robbery off.

I first saw Killing Zoe on video and was very impressed, so seeing it again on DVD would show if it survives the test of time, and it does, recommended!

Here is the trailer...
