"There are so many emotions in Inglourious Basterds," says Melanie Laurent. "[It's] so funny, violent, cruel and dramatic!"
There's also a lot of great music in the film, and it definitely helped set the mood for the actors. In addition to being one of the most action-packed WWII films in recent memory, Basterds is an emotional rollercoaster. The character that undergoes the biggest personal evolution is Laurent's Shosanna Dreyfus. After losing her family at the hands of Nazi Col. Hans Landa, she gets an unexpected opportunity for revenge against the Third Reich in one of the most ways possible. You'll have to see it though…
Certain tunes prepared Laurent for her character's violent apotheosis—some of those selections are quite surprising.
Check out Melanie Laurent's playlist in the video below and don't miss her in Inglourious Basterds in theaters this Friday August 21.
