This is by far my second favourite Quentin Tarantino film (Pulp Fiction no.1). But in general i am a QT fan and love and enjoy all his films, i've blogged about a few so far.
This is a war film but with a touch of comedy and is one of Tarantino's bests he took this film and adapted to his version. The adaptation came from Enzo G. Castellari's (The Inglorious Bastards - 1978).
We start off with the Bastards, 1st Special Service Force Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) hires Jewish-American solider's to help in hunting Nazi Germans down. Each of the solider's must hunt 100 Nazi's (Scalps) as they cut their scalps off. Meanwhile a lot of stuff has happened within the film but we come to Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent), who at the very beginning of the film was the the only jewish girl survivor. She meets a solider who falls for her and arranges a German Nazi Premiere at her cinema. Shosanna seizes this opportunity to burn the cinema down along with the Nazi Germans inside. At the same time there is another operation which brings the British and American solider's together. Lt. Archie Hicox (Michael Fassbender) is a film critic working on 'Operation Kino'. Hicox rendezvous with their agent and they get a German actress to help out with Raine (Bastards) to plant explosives and help in blowing up the cinema.
Basically they both have the same plan in blowing up the cinema filled with Nazi German's but does everything go to plan?
I have to say i love the different languages that are used within this film we have French, English and German and i really enjoy how it switches between them all. I enjoy a lot of the camera work within the film and how they all talk to one another and the camera moves between the characters. I also love how Brad Pitt a.k.a (Lt. Aldo Raine) tries to speak Italian haha! That bit was pretty hilarious.
This film is a real treat and real delight to watch, i don't want to spoil it as it's a film you need to watch and see the experience for yourself.
Hope you and enjoy it and please do let us know your thoughts!
