Plot – In Nazi-occupied France, Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the murder of her entire family at the hands of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Shosanna barely escapes death and flees to Paris, where she creates a new identity for herself as the owner and operator of a cinema. Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine puts together a group of Jewish soldiers known as "The Bastards". The soldiers are instructed by their superiors to act as mavericks, killing every German soldier they meet and taking their scalp. Raine's team works with German actress Bridget Von Hammersmark, an Allied spy, in a mission which aims to eliminate the leaders of the Third Reich. Their mission takes them close to the Parisian cinema where Shosanna is plotting her revenge. Inglorious Bastards, a project Quentin Tarantino thought about for years, was inspired by one of the director's favourite movies: “Inglorious Bastards” by Enzo G. Castellari.
