BERLIN — Quentin Tarantino says the brutal abuse of black slaves shown in his latest movie “Django Unchained” pales in comparison to the violence that was commonplace during the slavery era.

The director told reporters Tuesday ahead of the launch of the movie in Germany that “the truth, or the reality, was a thousand times worse than what I showed.”

Tarantino said he wouldn’t have been able to show the full extent of violence perpetrated by American slave owners.


The R-rated movie stars Jamie Foxx as a slave going on a killing spree of white slave owners and overseers just before the Civil War.

The cast also includes Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson.

Tarantino’s movie was released in U.S. theaters Dec. 25.
