inglourious basterds - embitterment level - disappointment level
WWII according to Quentin Tarantino: Two separate groups are planning to blow up the German leaders (including the Führer himself) in a cinema in Paris. One group are the ‘Basterds’ under the command of Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) who operate behind enemy lines with the goal of killing as many Nazis as possible. The other group is cinema owner Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) and her boyfriend and projectionist Marcel (Jacky Ido). Shosanna’s family has been killed by Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz), the “Jew Hunter”, and she was the only survivor.

The title and big names are misleading – Inglourious Basterds is not so much the story of Lt. Aldo/Brad Pitt as the story of Shosanna/Mélanie Laurent and of Nazi ‘Jew Hunter’ Col. Landa/Christoph Waltz. Waltz and Laurent not only have the most screen time, their performances are outstanding as well, especially Austrian actor Christoph Waltz shines as ‘Jew Hunter’ Col. Landa.
The rest is pure QT: cast aside logic and historical facts, enjoy the ride. All the trademark Tarantino traits are there: violence, blood and gore, humor, action, extraordinary characters, beautiful femmes fatales and a choice of music as daring as ingenious.
If you liked Kill Bill, you’re going to like the Basterds as well.

Adolf Hitler: I have an order I want relayed to all German soldiers stationed in France. The Jew degenerate known as the Bear Jew henceforth is never to be referred to as the Bear Jew again. Did you get that, Kliest?

Shosanna Dreyfus: Marcel… burn it down.
