Inglourious Basterds

This is an anomaly.  

An American film where the Germans speak German to each other, the French speak French to each other, and the Germans stationed in France speak French to the locals.  The majority of the film is subtitled and if it weren’t for the obligatory Tarantino body count, I would have forgotten what I was watching!

Tarantino clearly felt it was his turn to present his take on the Nazis v Jews story, but he also throws in some cutting observations on the film industry (both now and during war-time).

Some sharp dialogue and an excellent performance from Christoph Waltz made this a highly entertaining film – just remember to park all notion of reality at the door!
