SS-Standartenführer Hans Landa arrives at the remote dairy farm belonging to Perrier LaPadite.Unctuous and evil, Landa oozes politeness as he forces LaPadite to reveal where he is hiding a Jewish family. The storm troopers then shoot the family except for Shosanna Dreyfus, who manages to escape. Meanwhile, U.S. Lieutenant Aldo Raine recruits Jewish American soldiers into a commando unit called the Basterds. They operate behind enemy lines killing and scalping the Nazis they capture. In Paris, Shosanna and Marcel, her African-French lover and projectionist, manage a cinema. Goebbels has chosen Shosanna’s theater to screen a Nazi propaganda film. When Shosanna hears that Hitler and his top generals will be attending the screening, she and Marcel have an idea. They will set the theater on fire while the performance is on by lighting a match to the highly inflammable strips of film. This, they believe, will kill Hitler and his generals. Meanwhile, Landa captures Aldo and drives him to the American line. There Land hands a surprised Aldo his gun and surrenders.

It’s not enough to say that INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is Quentin Tarantino’s best movie. It’s the first movie of his artistic maturity, the film his talent has been promising for more than 15 years. The picture contains all the things his fans like about Tarantino – the wit, the audacity, the sudden violence – but his movie’s emotional core and bigness of spirit are new.
Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is a bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrates once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.”
