It’s very surprising for me, Quentin Tarantino (QT) picks warfare genre for his next project, although according to many sources, thiz script has been buried for a very long time in Tarantino’s desk. QT is authentically an inspirational and eccentric Director at the same time. His previous best works are ”Pulp Fiction” (1994), “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” (2003) and “Kill Bill: Vol. 2” (2004). It seems to me, he always finds something new to put in each of his film. The story is about a group of soldiers led by Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), who is known as “The Basterds”. They have mission to terminate every Nazi with their fiercely sadistic way. It’s also about an unfortunately Jewish girl (Melanie Laurent) who was the only survivor when Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) killed her entire family. Afterward, she runs a cinema that incidentally is rented by Nazi for their important occasion. She has a revenge plan to demolish the whole cinema with all Gestapo and Nazi superiors inside. Simply, QT never focuses on one-man-show. With his unique directing, QT takes us to his world where anything could be different. From the first chapter, we are already served by thoughtful and memorable dialogue. I think the power of QT’s movie is on the dialogue, unpredicted plots, sometimes comical and filled with memorable characters in each of his movie. If you free-minded enough then you can enjoy QT’s movies. Like Col. Hans Landa ever said (when he’s on the farmer house at early scene), “I ask your permission to switch to English for the remainder of the conversation…” Well, let’s enjoy QT’s language.
