|Source of story
||An original screenplay
||The director said that it had taken him ten years to write this script – I select this snippet from the endless items of trivia available on websites relating to the film.
||Quentin Tarantino (and Eli Roth of the film within the film)
||Brad Pitt, Mélanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz, Eli Roth, Michael Fassbender, Diane Kruger, Mike Myers, Rod Taylor, Léa Seydoux,
||The film follows the fortunes of a young woman who escapes from the massacre of her parents in France in 1941, plus those of a group of American soldiers reeking mayhem behind enemy lines, and those of an English spy, all of whom have designs on the leaders of the Third Reich
||There is a lot of talking in French, German and English in a farmer’s house, a German wood, a bar and a cinema, mostly leading up to a sudden burst of extreme violence with a variety of weapos, but the Schmeiser machine gun figures a lot. Some drinking one brief sex scene but no nudity.
||I saw this in the cinema, and now on my wide screen TV but on neither occasion have I liked it much. But it must just be me, the critics and nearly all the general public liked it a lot and it is No 99 in the IMDb list, so it could be a watch for you as well, that is unless you find your likes and dislikes have corresponded with mine.
