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.
“…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.”
– Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
“There’s an urgent impetus at the heart of this film, far beyond the realm of either flat period biopic or mere history lesson.”
– Christina Newland, Sight and Sound
“Reda Kateb is given his meatiest role to date as one of jazz’s foremost artists.” – Ed Frankl, The Film Stage
