With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.
Early in the film, Christoph Waltz kills a town Sheriff, and is about to be arrested by the local U.S. Marshal, until he pulls out an arrest warrant for the man he has just killed. Later in the movie, he points out Monsieur Candie's fondness for Alexandre Dumas, whose novel "The Three Musketeers" features a similar discussion between D'Artagnan and Cardinal Richelieu, who was played by Waltz in The Three Musketeers (2011).

Everybody in the film seems to have perfectly white teeth, even the slaves. In realty, it would be very unlikely for all those people to have white and healthy teeth in the 1800s. Because slaves probably didn't even have the chance to get any dental care, nor even had a tooth brush and paste. And most others were likely to be in the habit of chewing tobacco. And personal hygiene wasn't very common and probably wasn't practiced at the extend that it does today. It all makes the opening sequence even more ironic, considering that one of the main characters, a dentist, arrives in a mobile dentist clinic.
