Dates & Times
Jan 26 - Feb 1
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."
"There's an urgent impetus at the heart of this film, far beyond the realm of either flat period biopic or mere history lesson."
"Reda Kateb is given his meatiest role to date as one of jazz's foremost artists."
