Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino

   This movie was directed by the famous Quentin Tarantino in 2009. This is the story of the WW2, through the journey of Shosanna Dreyfus, a young jewish girl, persecuted by the SS Colonel Hans Landa who has executed her family.
In parallel it’s the story of a group of American Jewish soldiers named “Bastards” who will try to eliminate important personalities of the Nazi regime.
These two stories will meet to form one.

    The film is excellent despite some minor flaws.
To begin with, Inglorious Basterds is believable and powerful because the plot is based on a real life situation.
The subject of the WW2 may seem repetitive because there are many films on it, but it's worth it to see this one.
The film’s strenght relies on its casting with the presence of famous actors such as Christopher Waltz, Brad Pitt and Mélanie Laurent who bring a remarkable touch, their acting is splendid! However, sometimes, I find the play of Brad Pitt a little bit exaggerated.

    Moreover, this action and war movie is at the same time moving and harrowing. It’s simply emotional power. From my point of view, Tarantino handles this change of registry perfectly. Be careful if you can’t bear to see violence and blood on the screen, because this film is the spitting image of Tarantino!
Musics of Enio Morricone give rhythm to the movie with spectacular landscapes and shots.
The 30 minutes of the beginning are really intense and other scenes too, however apart from these few scenes, the dialogue sometimes seems boring and long...

    Finally, I think it’s a real success. The style "Tarantino" is very quickly identifiable, it’s unique, violent, intelligent, charming while standing out of his other films. As in kill Bill and Pulp Fiction, he perfectly doses each element.  This movie isn’t only for the fans of Tarantino, it’s for people who like intenses stories.
