Did You Know?
Inglourious Basterds is a 2009 World War II revenge film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and released in August 2009 by The Weinstein Company and Universal Pictures. It was filmed in several locations, among them Germany and France, beginning in October 2008. The film, set in Nazi-occupied France, tells the story of two plots to assassinate the Nazi leadership, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor, the other by a team of Allied scalp-hunters.
The title of the film was inspired by Italian director Enzo Castellari’s 1978 Dirty Dozen-like war film The Inglorious Bastards. However, Tarantino’s film is not a remake. Tarantino has repeatedly stressed that despite its being a war film, Inglourious Basterds is a “spaghetti western but with World War II iconography”. In addition to spaghetti westerns, the film also pays homage to the World War II “macaroni combat” sub-genre (itself heavily influenced by spaghetti-westerns).
Inglourious Basterds was accepted into the main selection at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in competition for the prestigious Palme d’Or and had its world premiere there in May. It was the only U.S. film to win an award at Cannes that year, earning a Best Actor award for Christoph Waltz. [From Wikipedia.
