Storyline

Exceptional artist caught in terribly cruel times
22 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is story of an exceptional artist stuck in Nazi-occupied France and the treatment of his community of gypsies in the form of an adventure to escape the country. The most enjoyable bits are those in which he plays music with his band in front of Nazi or french audiences, where his style and technique transpires exceptionally well and the people are lifted to a trance. However, the subject of the movie is grim and filmed in no special way. Django Reinhardt is caught between the between a rock and a hard place and though the tale is told like an adventure, one feels frustrated by the melancholy and the hardship. No more than he of course!
