Movie Info

The year is 1943 in Nazi-occupied Paris and Django Reinhardt is at the pinnacle of his art. The brilliant and carefree jazz guitarist, king of ethereal swing, plays to standing-room-only crowds in the capital's greatest venues. Meanwhile his gypsy brethren are being persecuted throughout Europe. His life takes a turn for the worse when the Nazi propaganda machine wants to send him on tour in Germany.

This loose, intermittently compelling biopic of jazz great Django Reinhardt offers a much-deserved spotlight role for French actor Reda Kateb.

Despite all the narrative embellishments, the movie does maintain a sense of Reinhardt's persona along with his incredible musical abilities, especially in a trio of concert scenes that highlight each act.

Offers a powerful contrast between horror and artistry.

This period drama about Django Reinhardt will please fans of his music while dismaying those looking for concrete facts about the life of the a Belgium-born French jazz guitarist of Romani decent.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

When Django Reinhardt's fingers aren't dancing across guitar strings, the film has all the vitality of an educational film shown by a substitute teacher.

There's an urgent impetus at the heart of this film, far beyond the realm of either flat period biopic or mere history lesson.
