Quentin Tarantino & Max Linder: Inglourious Basterds

[post 110]

OK, this one's no more than a curiosity, but since we're still on the subject of Linder....

Tarantino & Linder, an odd coupling, indeed, but no one knows his film history like our man Quentin, so this brief exchange from Inglourious Basterds should not come as a surprise.  In it, two of the four main characters in the movie meet for the first time.  Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent) has escaped the massacre of her Jewish family and now, under an assumed identity, is operating this movie theatre in Paris.  Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl) is a boyish German soldier who falls for her.
