Quentin Tarantino: ‘Hans Landa is the best character’
The famous Hollywood director shared that he could hardly make a character better than the Nazi in his film “Inglourious Basterds”.
According to Screen Daily, the 53-year-old filmmaker will be at the Jerusalem Cinematheque in the evening of July 9 to share with fans about his film career and his love of cinema. The event is part of the Jerusalem International Film Festival 2016, which opened on July 7.
Quentin Tarantino claims that his love of cinema and film power resembles that of a 13-year-old who is eager to write a TV episode of his own.
“If you are a child, you will not follow any rules or rules. You just want to make a Star Trek episode so crazy, “he says. “The way I work is no different. I want to give the audience the excitement, but in my own way. ”
Quentin Tarantino’s conversation took place before the audience revisited his second film, Pulp Fiction (1994) with a 35 mm version. That’s the movie he kept at his house. This year, the filmmaker is the guest of honor at the Jerusalem International Film Festival and will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the mayor of Nir Barkat.
From the Reservoir Dogs (1992) to the latest film The Hateful Eight (2015), Quentin Tarantino is always gathering for his A-list projects. “When I want to ban something, Place the actor and tell them. I do not like screaming on the set, “he revealed.

However, Tarantino has a golden rule: learn the dialogue. “They need to know their lines. If not, I can dismiss them and start the project again. If they do not memorize the words, they are disrespectful to me. I pay them to read my voice and that is the task for them. I like actors, but I love my character, “he said.
Quentin Tarantino also argues that not many actors have the ability to fully immerse themselves in character, just as Christoph Waltz plays Hans Landa in his film Inglourious Basterds (2009).
“Landa is the greatest character I’ve ever written, and probably will be in my career. When doing the script, I did not realize that he was a linguistic genius. He is probably one of the rare Nazis who can speak Hebrew, “he said.

Tarantino added that after the initial cast of the cast failed for Landa, he almost eliminated the project. At that time, the director was very nervous because he wanted to find the perfect actor for the character.
Then Christoph Waltz appeared and showed his ability. In fact, the role of Hans Landa has helped Austrian actor Oscar win the supporting actor in early 2010.

At the end of the conversation, Quentin Tarantino reiterated that he would retire after making his 10th film, after two more, as he considered Kill Bill: Vol 1 and 2 as the only project.
Still, the filmmaker left open the subject: “I’m going to finish my career after 10 movies. But when I turn 75, I think of a new story to tell and decide to re-export. “
