In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa
(Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.
Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift, shocking acts of retribution. Later known to their
enemy as "the basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders
of the Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own...
While completely historically inaccurate, I can't remember the last time I ahd this much fun watching a movie. Brilliantly original script and story. Loved the performances, especially by Brad Pitt.
I know it's Tarantino so it will be quirky to say the least but HUH???? I think I just took a Berlitz course in French, German and Italian. I am sorry but I thought this was awful....
Wow!!! what a great movie!!! Original concept and excellent script. Tarantino does it again!!
