Quentin Tarantino on the story behind his Western Django Unchained

Posted in entertainment with tags , , on January 13, 2013 by SpenceG

The difference between Django Unchained and my other films is that it follows one character on a journey.

Django and his wife are runaway slaves who are caught and as a punishment sold to owners on opposite sides of the country.

We meet Django in Texas as he’s freed by a bounty hunter who teaches him his trade and, later, agrees to help him rescue his wife from the clutches of Calvin Candie, a plantation owner who makes slaves fight to the death for fun.

Generally, revenge movies are simple. You meet the hero. You meet his wife. You meet their kids.

You hang out with them for about 20 minutes and then the bad guys kill the wife, kill the kids and the good guy goes on a roaring rampage of revenge.

The important thing to remember is that the revenge should be satisfying; it’s horrible when the heroes don’t personally kill the bad guys.
