    When they watch movies such as 'Inglorious Basterds'?

    Just curious, it must piss you off after awhile.

      I work with a first generation German-American. My take is embarassed. He doesn't like to talk about that point in history. It seems, at least from his perspective that there is a National guilt there.

        Thanks for the insight, it must be like taking on a debt being born German, that you get reminded of occasionally when movies like this come out.  Can't feel good to always be the bad guys.

        Good movie though.

            Maybe, I'm not a white American either so it's hard for me to say.  Us English did some pretty twisted shit, maybe that's what UW was referring to a film about.  But you don't get many big Hollywood movies about it to remind us all the time.

            Was just curious.

    It would be subjective.

    Most probably would not care much.

    Yes Goooood Film.

    I think there is a general guilt when it is brought especially with films...that generate large viewing audiences.

    But that's all in the past...the Germans I  know feel guilt but it was then and this is now and they believe Germans are better for it

    When I watch films about how Native Americans were treated by white Americans in the 1800s, it makes me feel ashamed to be almost all WASP. At least there's a smidge of Cheyenne blood running through my veins - not that that makes me feel any better about it.

      I guess we all have guilt, and history doesn't lie (often), but having just watched Inglorious Basterds again, I wondered how the kids in the Cinemas of Germany might feel watching it.  I wonder if it was a big success over there?

        If they know anything about Quentin Tarantino films, it probably doesn't affect them much at all.  They are designed to shock and amuse, not to educate or represent historical events accurately.  Coinicidentally, I heard an interview of QT on NPR last night; he said this film was largely an homage to the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone from the 1960's and 70's.

    This film has a strange title.. it's officialy 'Inglourious Basterds' it's as if the writers didn't know how to spell!
    I'vw tried to download this film dubbed in Spanish, but after downloading it, the film won't play.What is it with the Spanish speaking community? Don't they know how to upload fims. or what?
    Obviously ths isn't a one off with spanish films, or I wouldn't comment.
    Anyway, I've read online that this film is brilliant. Not my choice or else I would've downloaded it in English first.
    Please dont ask what young Germans think of their history. These people have suffered enough, IMO

      I'll ask what I like, and people may answer as they choose.  This question was not intended to dredge up history, or make others feel bad.
