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.

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.

January 18, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

January 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Django expresses, via the language of film genre, not what Reinhardt's life was but what it might have felt like.

January 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The finale enlivens an otherwise staid biopic, but whether the film has earned a moment of uplift is unclear.

½

Following a moment in Django Reinhardt's life during World War II, this engaging drama offers us a nuanced portrait of a brilliant musician who gets caught in a very tense situation and begins to slowly realize that he must flee from the dangerous grip of a menacing regime.
