Leah Pickett Chicago Reader The film contains a number of fictionalized characters and scenarios that ring false... but the extended musical numbers by Reinhardt's Quintette du Hot Club de France are wonderful. Apr 9, 2020 Full Review Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune 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. Rated: 2/4 Feb 1, 2018 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times "Django" will leave fans of the legend merely eager to return to their beloved recordings and let their ears take in the greatness. Jan 18, 2018 Full Review Leigh Monson Substream Magazine We've been here. We've done this. And I'm sure the memory of Django Reinhardt deserved better than this.

Seo I Mobila de bucatarie: recomandări Bucatarii sunt frumoase în aceeași măsură ca și mobilierul din ele. O bucatarie este inima casei dumneavoastră. Este locul în care familia se adună pentru a lua masa după o zi lungă sau înainte de a pleca la muncă sau la școală și este locul în care toți membrii familiei își petrec timpul.

Scaune pentru bucatarie Dacă aveți o masa de bucatarie, este evident că veți avea nevoie de un loc în jurul ei.

Every performance felt phoned in, the music felt misplaced for the era it represented, and the story was truly dull. The earnest desire to represent a colossal Romani figure in popular culture set against the backdrop of WWII makes it difficult to rate so low. It's just a shame that the characters are underdeveloped and the story half-baked. The romance plotline rings stale from the second scene, and leads approximately nowhere. Instead of an earnest view into the life of a great musician, we instead receive an excess of sullenly-delivered dialogue delivered by a seemingly half-asleep Reda Kateb. The musical segments are nice interludes at first, until one realises that the drum-heavy jazz featured is really quite far from most Django recordings available to listen online. Overall, quite misguided and very avoidable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/21 Full Review Audience Member I thought this was a very well-done film. The acting from him and his mother but all the characters was very good. I don't understand the other reviews "its not like his music, so joyful and happy". Thats pretty much the point. There was a Romani holocaust and he managed (in part because of his talent) to escape it. I thought the ending of the film in the Church was very, very moving. Non- "gypsy" jazz for sure. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I know little about Django's life, but I found this to be a remarkable movie. I didn't go into it thinking it was deeply or accurately biographical. What counts and what makes it succeed, is the music, the well-reconstructed ambiance, and a credible sense of the dangers faced by this not-much talked-about minority. And it's a wonderful expression of the lifestyle of these folks. On top of it, the acting was terrific. Perhaps a deeper exploration of Django's inner life might have been of interest, but that wasn't the point of this film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful movie. Poetic and Cinematic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought the movie wonderful. If you are looking for a "fast-paced nasty Nazi overcome by Art and the power of love, Movie" this isn't it --- it's something else, and something better. Every character is played straight, with depth and nuance, and the personal ambiguities of Django as he comes to terms with his situation feels real. I came away more curious about Romani culture and even more fond of his music, if that could be possible. I'll be getting the DVD when it comes out.
