The reason why this film was chosen to write an analysis about is my profound admiration for Quentin Tarantino’s work, being this his latest piece it is worth totry and analyze ccertain parts of it. With is own style almost carved into the aesthetics of this film, you can find out how twisted this man really is, beginning with a fiction scenario which is the termination of all Nazi’s high commands all in one place at the same time. You can tell right away there is a profound hate for nazi’s. Once again it is dialouge, not special effects or digitallyinserted images that get your attention. So shallow and profound at the same time, you miss one line of dialouge and the whole plot of the story is just done for you. Not forgetting the crudeness and blood shedding caracterized in his movies, Tarantino shows once again a masterpiece, just another masterpiece for his collection.
France 1943, young Jewish refugee Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the slaughterof her family by Colonel Hans Landa. Just escaping with her life, she plans her revenge several years later, when German war hero Fredrick Zoller gets interested in her and arranges a great movie premiere at the theater she owns. With the promise of every major Nazi officer in attendance, the event catches the attention of the Basterds, a group of Jewish-American soldiers led by Lt. Aldo Raine.As the executioners advance and the conspiring girl's plans are set in motion, their paths will cross on the evening that will shake the very foundations of modern history. This film is divided into five chapters. Chapter one: "Once upon a time.... In Nazi occupied France", Chapter two: "Inglorious Basterds", Chapter three: "German night in Paris", Chapter four: "Operation Kino" and Chapter five:" Revenge of the giant face"
Chapter 1: “Once upon a time…. In Nazi Occupied France” The opening scene of the movie is within a small house on french field, the owners of the house get startled as a small group of nazi soldiers are walking towards them. They start hiding every single person they were protecting from the nazi regime. By the time the small nazi group gets to the front door everyJewish is hidden. Here, an interesting character is introduced to the audience, Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) a high ranked nazi unit, a very clever character, also very experienced in inspecting houses for hidden visitors.
He starts arguing with the owner of the house in french, you can feel the tention in the air when this conversation starts, ever since Colonel Landa walks into thehouse, the people who live in it chose their words carefuly, after several minutes into the conversation Colonel Landa suggests to switch the language into english, knowing that the hidden people were french and didn't speak english, he took advantage of the situation and started talking the owner of the house into a settlement, he would let them unarmed if he directed the soldiers to where thepeople were hiding. Then he switched back to french and said he was leaving and he enjoyed the conversation, while he pointed to his soldiers where to shoot at. His soldiers started aiming at the floor, and shooting their entire bullet magazines into it, killing all but one person. Shosanna Dreyfuss.
It is very important to notice the tention that was included in this scene, throughout the entireconversation, the family that inhabited the house was feeling really unconfortable with the presence of nazi units in there. So unconfortable that Colonel Landa noticed it right away. Colonel Landa, a very interesting character in the film, you can say every person that met this character throughout the film was freightened of him, not because he was violent or evil, onlybecause he could sense when...
