"Inglourious Basterds" is set during World War II and stars Brad Pitt, Mike Myers and Diane Kruger. A band of Jewish-American soldiers known as 'The Basterds' spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis, while in Paris a young Jewish French woman who runs a movie theatre is involved in a plot to kill Hitler during the premiere of a movie. "Inglourious Basterds" has the violence, humour, cracking dialogue, and band-of-brothers camaraderie of Reservoir Dogs, as well as the profound courage and sense of honour of the greatest World War II movies. Once again, Quentin Tarantino has created an unforgettable movie experience.
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1963, Quentin Tarantino was an ex-video store clerk whose debut feature Reservoir Dogs (1991) became a huge cult hit. Two earlier scripts - True Romance and Natural Born Killers - were then filmed, while his own Pulp Fiction (1994) won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and an Oscar for Best Screenplay. Subsequently he has contributed to Four Rooms (1995) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), and made Jackie Brown (1998), Kill Bill (2003), and Death Proof (2008).
