Critic Reviews for Django
A more honest script might've supported Reda Kateb's laid-back, medium-effective portrayal of Reinhardt more fully. As is, he's depicted as an artist man floating through his awful times, living for the music.
"Django" will leave fans of the legend merely eager to return to their beloved recordings and let their ears take in the greatness.
The film's story - loosely adapted from Alexis Salatko's novel Folles de Django - manages to feel at once oversimplified, underfed and overburdened.
Django is for the most part everything Reinhardt's music was not: listless, glum and meandering.
Django expresses, via the language of film genre, not what Reinhardt's life was but what it might have felt like.
