Django Reinhardt was one of the most brilliant pioneers of European jazz and the father of Gypsy Swing. DJANGO grippingly portrays one chapter in the musician's eventful life and is a poignant tale of survival. Constant danger, flight and the atrocities committed against his family could not make him stop playing.

1943, occupied Paris. 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…

"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."
Jordan Mintzer - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Django expresses, via the language of film genre, not what Reinhardt's life was but what it might have felt like."
Alan Scherstuhl - VILLAGE VOICE

"Even the most adamant of jazz haters will find themselves tapping their toes... Time and again, the film sublimates resistance through art, through identity, and through acts of non-compliance so natural that the man committing them isn’t even fully aware that the instrument in his hands is a machine that kills fascists. "
David Ehrlich - INDIEWIRE
