Inglourious Basterds Meme - Day Twenty-Two
A Scene You Wish Never Happened.
I like these two characters together. Purely with respect to how Shosanna treats Fredrick, I can’t help but feel for the guy. If they had met at any other moment in history, the dynamics between them would have made for an amazing romantic comedy. That said, I think I’ll let Tarantino himself explain why this scene is so poignant.
“All these people were trying to kill Zoller, but he’s just the one who won. And everything he’s doing, he’s doing with the best intentions. He’s screwing her up so bad it’s not even funny, but he doesn’t know that, and to me, at the end, there’s an almost Romeo and Juliet quality to their end. In a different time, things could have been different.”
