Killing Zoe is an independent sensation directed by Tarantino co-conspirator Roger Avary (co-writer of Pulp Fiction). Zed (Eric Stolz, The Fly II) is groomed to be the safe cracker for a Parisian bank robbery, destined to fail. Jean-Hugues Anglade is the ringleader of a chaotic gang of bank robbers-for-one-day. Julie Delpy, appearing divine as always, is the hooker that Eric orders right after landing. All kinds of complications develop, from uncooperative bank employees to less than capable members within Eric's group. Also, Delpy's character Zoe works at the bank. Things continue to deteriorate (the police show up, and they seem to care little for the hostages) as viewers witness the importance of careful planning and being picky when choosing associates for such an undertaking. Most movies can be classified as "check your brain at the door" but, this movie is thought provoking and thrilling at the same time. It has action, drama, comedy, and believe it or not animation.
