News culture Netflix pretends to be Quentin Tarantino with this original film and it’s a hit
It is undoubtedly the event film of spring 2023 on Netflix. The platform’s latest original production from Germany has been a hit since its release at the end of May. Strongly inspired by the work of director Quentin Tarantino, the feature film has won the hearts of moviegoers.
Netflix does Tarantino
Netflix has accustomed us to an ever-richer catalog of series, films and other anime from all over the world. Every month, there are dozens of new features that swell the ranks of the SVOD service to the 230 million subscribers in order (among other things) to compensate for the many departures. Netflix original productions have over time established themselves among subscribers who scan the horizon in search of new film nuggets with varied origins. At the end of April, France was honored thanks to an action film directed by Morgan S. Dalibert starring Alban Lenoir (Hero Corp, Balle Perdue). A month later, it’s Germany’s turn to take the spotlight.
Blood & Gold is a German war film directed and scripted by Peter Thorwarth (screenwriter on The Wave and Blood Red Sky) with Robert Maaser (Mission Impossible Rogue Nation), Marie Hacke (Outlander) and Alexander Scheer (Blood Red Sky) to portray the lead roles. The film, strongly inspired by the 7th Art of Quentin Tarantino and especially bis genre cinema, sets its action in 1945 in a remote village of Nazi Germany closer than ever to defeat against the Allied forces. It is in this context that a deserter and a civilian find themselves involved despite themselves in the quest for gold by a contingent of German soldiers led by the implacable SS officer von Starnfeld.
Since its release at the end of May 2023, Blood & Gold has occupied the TOP 1 position in France on Netflix, and this audience success goes hand in hand with the critical success met by the film. In effect, the latter has a “press” score of 80% on RottenTomatoes (70% for els users). On Letterboxd, a social network for film buffs, Peter Thorwarth’s creation garners a promising 3.1/5 (62%). There is no doubt that the filmmaker will be talked about again in the coming years, whether on Netflix or in theaters.
