    revenge fantasy, Inglourious Basterds has been hailed as one of Tarantino’s most stylish and

    SYNOPSIS
    In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses
    the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna
    narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a
    cinema.
    Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers
    to perform swift, shocking acts of retribution. Later known to their enemy as “the Basterds,” Raine's
    squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a
    mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquis,
    where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own....
    Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS
    BASTERDS weaves together the infamous, oppressed, real and larger-than-life stories of WWII.

    I'm a little disappointed the music video for Samantha Shelton's French-language cover of "The Man with the Big Sombrero" isn't being included here; it made nice use of inserting her into existing footage from HI DIDDLE DIDDLE.

    Michael Fassbender wasn't in the The Bourne Ultimatum. That's an odd error in a press release like this.
