synopsis

One of the first ever documentaries centring on a jazz musician, Paul Paviot’s 1957 short-film is based on Chris Marker’s text, narrated by Yves Montand and opens with one of Jean Cocteau’s mottos. But, above all, its subject is the legendary Django Reinhardt, who had died four years before its release. While depicting prominent events from his life, the film is marked, of course, by the resonance of the musical pieces performed by this famous Romani guitarist, which envelop the film in a delicate, somewhat melancholic atmosphere, augmented by the entire visual and narrative structure that the aforementioned ‘dream-team’ creates. Just as the protagonist’s music, “Django Rheinhardt” is like a breath of fresh air, paying a wistful, elegant and not in the least saccharine homage to the figure of the most renowned guitarist of the era and to the nomadic environment in which he grew up, that would inspire the expression of his talent.
