Julie Delpy was riding high on the success of Three Colors: White (1994) at the time she was approached with Killing Zoe. Initially she was hesitant to accept the role of Zoe, since Roger Avary was an unproven director. "After a chance meeting with a tarot card reader on the Venice boardwalk," she says, "I was told I would go on a great spiritual journey." Since Killing Zoe was the only project she was considering, she decided it must be the film that would cause her journey. See more »

The characters, events and institutions depicted in this motion picture are fictional. Any similarity to actual persons or junkies, living or dead, is purely coincidental. See more »
The Italian version omits all references to Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade's character) being HIV-positive: the moment when he tells about it to Zed is not included. Also omitted is the dialogue at the end, when Zed tells Zoe that the blood covering his face is mostly Eric's (suggesting the possibility that he might have been infected). See more »
Roger Avary´s "Killing Zoe" tells the conventional story of a failed bank robbery with the following taking of hostages, but not the plot itself is the most important thing, it is more interesting how the director executed the whole affair: the gangsters are a riffraff of junkies and pot smokers, the dialogues feature once more a bundled load dirty language, what´s no wonder when you know that Quentin Tarantino was the executive producer of this film. Eric Stoltz, an actor where I can always find something bad, is hilarious in repeating his "Pulp Fiction"-part, however, Julie Delpy´s talent is pretty wasted, and only the show of ass and tits makes no character-role! The greatest appearance has Jean-Hugues Anglade as permanently doped gang lead Eric in an almost unbelievable cool performance! I also liked the unusual camera angles and the slow motion showdown! Maybe not as great as the original Tarantino movies, but still a funny flick! 8 out of 10!!!!!
