Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

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 »

doubled my heartbeat
19 August 2005 | by vreemdmuzikantjeSee all my reviews

Saw this movie twice. First time was a about ten years ago, when I was still a teenager. Almost forgot about it, but when i saw it again I realized this movie really shocked me at that time, and I even must admit that it still does. It starts off kind of slow, but that's just a tease for what's about to come. Don't watch this if you're weak at heart, not that it is that explicit, but the violence is kind of brutal, no sentimental bullshit, no mercy. If somebody ever asks me to rob a bank, I definitely say no. I almost wanted to give this a 9/10, but mmm, the first part should have been just a little more intriguing. Once they're in the bank, oh man!
