[00:00:00] did they say in the film one that's approximately takes place. That first scene they say happens in 1941 where, uh, we'll meet him. Eventually. Hons Londa played by the wonderful Christoph waltz that was in 1941. Shoshana, the one of the lead characters, she looks young there, but I don't think they say how much time passed between when that scene happens.
And then rains puts together the Inglorious bastards. Do they say it? Not, not as I recall, maybe our viewers can, can fact check the two of us on this, but I, I believe it's generally presumed that at least a few years past, because Shoshana goes from being. Effectively a, a refugee, a Jew, a Jewish person on, on the, on the lamb, um, to becoming, uh, an owner of a [00:01:00] theater.
Um, and the way she gets us theater is somewhat mysterious. She says that it, uh, it was left to her by her on and her uncle, but it must be remembered that she's giving this as a story to, um, uh, Fredericks. Uh, a German, a German officer, in fact, in a war hero, which I'm sure we'll, we'll get into. Um, and so it's, it's tough to tell how much of that should really be believed.
And it must have been presumably before the D-Day invasion in 1944, because Francis fell occupied by the Germans. So at some time in between 1941 and 19, mid, 1944, Right. That was where I placed it. That, that was the one thing I knew since it was still occupied. France was that, uh, that was that it was before D-Day.
