This new film stars Reda Kateb as Django Reinhardt and focuses on his experiences during World War II, during the Nazi occupation of France in 1943. Much like some of the other biopics which have been based on the lives and careers of musicians, some recent reviews have suggested that parts of the story are fictionalized. As a fan of Django and history in general, I'm really looking forward to seeing this film. I remember reading that during the German occupation of France, Django Reinhardt's composition "Nuages" became the ultimate anthem of resistance to the Nazis. Jazz clubs played a big role in the resistance and the Hot Club did more than play great music; they allegedly gathered intelligence. Although Hitler wasn't a fan of the music and personally believed that jazz was an evil form of art created by the Jews, he attempted to remain on good terms with the French people by allowing the music. Hitler intended for these jazz clubs to serve as places of relaxation for the Nazi soldiers. Considering what the Nazis were doing to the Jews and the Gypsies at that time, Django, (a Gypsy himself), survived the war and continued to play music until his death in 1953.
