Product Description

The new film from director Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds, begins in German-occupied France, where Soshanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Soshanna 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) organises a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemies 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 marquee, where Soshanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own...

From Amazon.co.uk

Although Quentin Tarantino has cherished Enzo G. Castellari's 1978 "macaroni" war flick The Inglorious Bastards for most of his film-geek life, his own Inglourious Basterds is no remake. Instead, as hinted by the Tarantino-esque misspelling, this is a lunatic fantasia of WWII, a brazen re-imagining of both history and the behind-enemy-lines war film subgenre. There's a Dirty Not-Quite-Dozen of mostly Jewish commandos, led by a Tennessee good ol' boy named Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) who reckons each warrior owes him one hundred Nazi scalps--and he means that literally. Even as Raine's band strikes terror into the Nazi occupiers of France, a diabolically smart and self-assured German officer named Landa (Christoph Waltz) is busy validating his own legend as "The Jew Hunter." Along the way, he wipes out the rural family of a grave young girl (Melanie Laurent) who will reappear years later in Paris, dreaming of vengeance on an epic scale.

Now, this isn't one more big-screen comic book. As the masterly opening sequence reaffirms, Tarantino is a true filmmaker, with a deep respect for the integrity of screen space and the tension that can accumulate in contemplating two men seated at a table having a polite conversation. IB reunites QT with cinematographer Robert Richardson (who shot Kill Bill), and the colors and textures they serve up can be riveting, from the eerie red-hot glow of a tabletop in Adolf Hitler's den, to the creamy swirl of a Parisian pastry in which Landa parks his cigarette. The action has been divided, Pulp Fiction-like, into five chapters, each featuring at least one spellbinding set-piece. It's testimony to the integrity we mentioned that Tarantino can lock in the ferocious suspense of a scene for minutes on end, then explode the situation almost faster than the eye and ear can register, and then take the rest of the sequence to a new, wholly unanticipated level within seconds.

Again, be warned: This is not your "Greatest Generation," Saving Private Ryan WWII. The sadism of Raine and his boys can be as unsavory as the Nazi variety; Tarantino's latest cinematic protégé, Eli (director of Hostel) Roth, is aptly cast as a self-styled "golem" fond of pulping Nazis with a baseball bat. But get past that, and the sometimes disconcerting shifts to another location and another set of characters, and the movie should gather you up like a growing floodtide. Tarantino told the Cannes Film Festival audience that he wanted to show "Adolf Hitler defeated by cinema." Cinema wins. --Richard T. Jameson

This is the kind of movie only Quentin Tarantino seems able to get away with. A typically irreverent, cunning and scatological piece of flotsam that does everything against the accepted movie-making conventions but mostly works nonetheless.

Watching it, I kept thinking about all those `how to write a screenplay' courses and instruction books and reflecting on how the writing for `Inglorious Basterds' would probably fail all the standard academic criteria for success. Here is a 153 minute long movie that largely consists of lengthy conversations between two or more characters, usually sitting statically at tables and ranging around all sorts of commonplace chit-chat before getting to the point. The point, when eventually reached, then usually climaxes in a short, brutal moment of extreme violence. The film also pays scant attention to its titular characters, who are mostly just there to supply the key moments of violence. Tarantino prefers to turn conventions around and promote nominal supporting roles into the predominant leads. Finally, there's the intriguing awareness that this screenplay could probably be adapted as a theatre play with minimal change and a pretty modest budget. In fact, if somebody told you the whole thing was a filmed stage play you'd probably believe it.

Tarantino's usual indulgences are as much to the fore as ever - pastiche, self-awareness, smugness, overlength and endless movie references. The whole thing starts with a lengthy tribute to the opening of Once Upon a Time in the West and another long scene, involving the French heroine played by Melanie Laurent, looks like something lifted straight from a late-50s New Wave classic by Goddard or Truffaut.

Do you know what, the film is so 'way-out' ....it's actually pretty good.
Maybe the best thing 'Quentin Tarantino' has done so far ?
The film itself contains glimpses of a warped reality from 'World War '2' along with a measure of 'graphic' violence, and of course much 'tongue -in -cheek' humour.
The story ? ....a novel and of course fictional early end to the war, prior to which 'a hit-squad' are placed in occupied 'France' around the time of the 'Normandy' landings, task.....to kill as many 'German's' as they possibly can.
As i say the film is pretty entertaining to watch, and is no question 'worth a spin'

I’ve never really been a fan of Quentin Tarantino as a director. Yes, I know he doesn’t hold back with the bold violence, ensemble casts, quirky story-telling and surreal pop culture references and that works for many people, but doesn’t for me. I’ve got one more of his films to watch from word-of-mouth and that is ‘Django Unchained’, and already from that I am looking forward to just one thing in that, evident here in ‘Inglorious Basterds’, and that is Christoph Waltz.

While Brad Pitt in ‘Fury’ got me into watching this war film, here Pitt gives another enjoyable portrayal of an American WW soldier, albeit slightly more unhinged and sadistic, but sporting a wonderful moustache and a brilliant accent. The rest of the cast are also great in their roles; from the tormented Melanie Laurent, to the fearless Michael Fassbender and even a surreal turn by Mike “Austin Powers” Myers as a tough-talking British General, this film and its usual Tarantino disjointed narrative is saved by Waltz’s SS Colonel.

From the electrifyingly simple opening sequence (something Tarantino does so well admittedly, long takes of 1:1 conversation with characters to really build tension and see under their skin), to his eerie presence around Nazi occupied France where you really see him like a hawk; breathing down the necks of those undercover agents and waiting to strike. Waltz plays Landa perfectly and I can only see him doing it so well – he isn’t over the top, nor overly dramatic; he is contained, cunning and quite unpredictable as you never know if and when he is going to snap against the enemy. When he does, it’s shocking but so perfect; it makes Landa a very likeable and respected “villain”.

I'm a huge Tarantino fan, however I had reservations about watching this as I'd heard that there was a LOT of violence in it (and I'm pretty squeamish, despite being 20 years old). But, after I watched Django for the second time, I decided to pluck up some courage, get over the gore and watch this film. I wasn't sure what to expect, as the reviews were pretty mixed, however the majority were highly praising and it seemed that even the bad comments raved about Christoph Waltz's performance.

The film felt long to me, however, strangely, that didn't bother me. My favourite parts were what a lot of the negative reviews criticized the film for: it's long sections of dialogue. I thought they were clever, interesting and tense. However, this may be due to the fact that a lot of these scenes featured Hans Landa, who was played immaculately by the brilliant Christoph Waltz and somehow had me hanging on to his every word. For me (and for a lot of other people, judging by the reviews) he made this film. The rest of the cast were also very good; and though Brad Pitt's character was undeniably hammy, I think that was the way it was meant to be played, and it worked well. The story-line was engaging, though I found myself more interested in the interaction of the characters than the underlying plot. But I won't hold that against Tarantino, especially in this day and age where most blockbusters seem to feature stereotypical, predictable and wooden characters.

What parts let it down? Well, most of the reviews here said the ending. I don't really agree. Sure, it could have been better, but I did enjoy it and it is very, ahem, explosive. What I didn't care for was how easily Landa seemed to be fooled. He is cunning and highly intelligent, shouldn't he have seen that coming?
