Germans Could Reject Tarantino's "Inglorious Bastards"

Posted: September 6th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Germans Could Reject TarantinoSubmit Comment
A leaked script of Quentin Tarantino's World War II drama "Inglorious Bastards" already is stirring up controversy for scenes of vengeful Americans bashing, scalping, shooting and strangling German soldiers.

What began as an Internet murmur here went mainstream with a recent article by Tobias Kneibe, film editor of the Suddeutsche Zeitung, who predicted the project could have an explosive effect similar to that of Tom Cruise's "Valkyrie," which has been savaged in the German media even though it won't hit theaters until 2009.

"All the German historians and critics who were left gasping for breath by Tom Cruise and his worthy attempts will be so shocked by 'Inglorious Bastards' that they will savage it on the spot," Kniebe wrote.

Even though he personally likes the script, Kneibe said that "the collision between Tarantino-style pop culture with the themes of the Holocaust and Jewish revenge (the 'Bastards' of the film are Jewish-American Nazi hunters) is unprecedented in Germany and its results are completely unpredictable."

More potential fuel for the fire: Tarantino's pulp fiction version of German history will almost certainly get German state financing. Germany's DFFF film fund gives automatic tax breaks for local shoots and "Bastards" is set to shoot almost entirely in Studio Babelsberg outside Berlin.

Producers the Weinstein Company declined comment but sources near the shoot said the controversy has had no effect on Tarantino or the German talent connected to the film, which includes Til Schweiger, Daniel Bruhl, Christoph Waltz and Diane Kruger.

So lets pretend that an entire chunk of history didn't happen just because the germans might get offended. This is so beyond preposterous that the people responsible for the greatest instance of industrialized murder are getting offended by the victimization of their own people.

So true Trickofthehand, what they should actually be offended by is Tarantino doing a movie at all in their country after we & Japan have had to suffer since after Pulp Fiction. He's been washed for years in my mind. But then again, I love anything relating to that amazingly disturbing time in human history. So I MIGHT, big MIGHT, see his movie.
