A dark comedy and a war genre film that is fluently combined in one big, action film with a funny story written by Quentin Tarantino, Inglorious Bastards, produced in 2009, tells an unpredictable story which takes place during an alternate World War II. On the screen we can see Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Laurent and Eli Roth.
The film is divided into two parts, two different stories. The first one shows the fate of a Jewish girl Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent), whose family was killed by SS colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) , nicknamed the "Jew Hunter". She changes her name to Emmanuelle Mimieux and she is the owner of a cinema in Paris. When she finds out that her cinema will show an Nazi propaganda film, she wants to revenge for her family. The second one tells the story of "The Bastards", who are eight Jewish-American soldiers formed by Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), who kills Germans in brutal way. They have an order to kill Hitler, who will be in a film premiere at Shosanna’s cinema. But above all of them is Hans Landa, who wants to disrupt all their plans.
Before watching the film, the first thing which stands alone is the title. QT wanted it to be extraordinary and wrote “Inglorious Bastards”. It is of course incorrect, but it points out the lightness of this film. The really good point of this film is the acting, which is awesome. The film includes everything from love to shoot-outs. The plot is gripping and really unpredictable, that’s why you can’t be bored when watching.
To sum up, without hesitation I think it is one of the best dark comedies ever made. From the first minutes, the film makes your curiosity higher and higher. I recommended it to everyone who likes this type of film, also to everyone who wants to simply relax.
