Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. 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 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 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...

Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds weaves together the infamous, oppressed, real, and larger-than-life stories of World War II.

Review:

"It's not enough to say that Inglourious Basterds is Quentin Tarantino's best movie. It's the first movie of his artistic maturity, the film his talent has been promising for more than 15 years." The San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Basterds isn't so revolutionary or so finely crafted as Pulp Fiction was, but it crackles with the same energy and imagination and chutzpah." Miami Herald

Review:

"It's just possible that Tarantino, having played a trick on history, is also fooling his fans. They think they're in for a Hollywood-style war movie starring Brad Pitt. What they're really getting is the cagiest, craziest, grandest European film of the year." Time Magazine

Review:

"A big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that [Tarantino is] the real thing, a director of quixotic delights." Roger Ebert

Review:

"With Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino has made his best movie since Pulp Fiction. He has also made what could arguably be considered the most audacious World War II movie of all-time." ReelViews
