Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Eric changes his clip, he moves from the center to one of the side clips. After this happens Zoe gets the gun and it is back on the center clip (which is supposed to be empty.) See more »

Attention-Grabbing French Crime Film
21 March 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

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.
