Inglourious Basterds Movie Summary
In 1941, Shosanna, a jewish girl in France, hides beneath the floor of a farmhouse while SS colonel Hans Landa interrogates the farmer for the presence of hidden jews in the home. When they are found, Shosanna flees while the rest are gunned down.
Later, Lieutenant Raine recruits Jewish-American soldiers to fight in a special Army unit, the Basterds, to spread terror in the German army. They are known for killing and scalping Nazis and carving a swastika into the foreheads of the survivors. It works, and fear of the Basterds spreads through the German ranks.
Shosanna changes her identity and runs a movie theater in occupied Paris. She is romatically pursued by Frederick Zoller, a famous German sniper with a high body count. Zoller has starred in a propaganda film about his success in battle. Zoller convinces Joseph Goebbels to hold the premiere at Shosanna’s theater. Ultimately, it is decided that all of the German higherups will attend the premiere at Shosanna’s theater. Shosanna hatches a plan to burn the theater down with the German’s trapped inside.read full summary
