The much-questioned line, "Ox, where is thy yoke," has been said by Roger Avary to be a total non-sequitur. Roger Avary said he wanted something Shakespearian sounding but was too lazy to find a real quote. See more »

The 3 DVD special edition released in France includes the 96 minute theatrical version on disc 1, the 99 minute director's cut on disc 2 and extras on disc 3 (including deleted scenes and behind the scenes footage). The directors cut includes a more detailed heroin taking scene, Eric telling Zed that he is going to give Zoe Aids, a slightly extended fight between Zed, Eric and Zoe at the end and a bloodier death for Eric.

A rough and sometimes sordid movie is a short way to summarize this film. It's about a no-nonsense gang of drugged-out French thieves whose bank robbery attempt backfires into a bloody mess.
For those who object, be warned there are a fair amount of subtitles in here and a lot of f-words. This was a tough gang, and the lead characters are pretty grubby, they aren't really very likable people.
I like Jean-Hughes Anglade's accent and I always like ogling Julie Delpy, although I've seen her look better. The city of Paris looked good with some nice shots in the beginning and at the end of the movie.
Anglade, as the leader of the gang, was brutal but fascinating. My only complaint was the film was too sordid in spots (drugs, language and attitude). but overall, an entertaining crime film. It gets your attention and keeps it.
