Synopsis: Killing Zoe is a 1994 American-French crime film written and directed by Roger Avary and starring Eric Stoltz, Jean-Hugues Anglade and Julie Delpy.

BELLBOY:

(in broken English)

Your package...It arrived in the last

night of before last night.

He points to the telephone.

BELLBOY:

Ah...telephone, for the room service.

He motions toward the bathroom.

BELLBOY:

The toilet.

He opens the closet door.

BELLBOY:

To hang the clothes.

He points to a control console next to the bed.

BELLBOY:

From here you can operate the television.

Then he pauses at the door before he goes out.

Zed reaches into his pocket and takes out some French money,

he starts fingering through it.

Then, the bellboy takes the liberty of showing Zed which

bills to give him.

BELLBOY:

(after getting what he wanted)

Merci.

He starts to leave.

ZED:

Oh, wait.

The bellboy turns around.

ZED:

What time is it?

BELLBOY:

(confused)

What time is it?

ZED:

(pointing at his watch)

Time.

BELLBOY:

Ah. Yes. Il est presque huit heures

moins dix.

The bellboy clicks his heels and walks out the door.

Zed looks around the room, still wondering what time it is,

and takes a seat on the bed.

Obviously tired from the flight Zed unbuttons his shirt a bit

and lays back on the bed next to the package. Before he

dozes off to sleep he takes his watch off and places it on

the bedside table.

He is asleep.

FADE TO BLACK:

INT. HOTEL ROOM - LATER - DAY

Zed's bed, while still made, looks like it's been slept in.

Sitting on it is the ripped open air freight package. Inside

of it is a black steel briefcase.

The shower is on and from the look of things Zed is in it.

On the bedside table we see Zed's watch. It reads 12:10 P.M.

Next to it is the phone. Next to the phone is a piece of

folded paper with Moises' name and a phone number that reads:

45.63.53.37.

INT. HOTEL ROOM - BATHROOM - SHOWER - DAY

Zed is in the shower letting the water run directly into his

face and cascade down his body.
