Following it’s recent premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, Lost in Frenchlation is proud to bring you the highly anticipated ‘Django’ from Etienne Comar (co-writer of ‘Mon Roi’) with English subtitles! Don’t miss this epic film about a famous French jazz guitarist and his struggles in German-occupied Paris.
‘Django is an exceptional film illuminating a gifted artist struggling with his sensibility regarding the use of his music for political purposes… Working off archival materials, Comar delivers a timely piece on gypsy culture and the improvisational skill and unique sounds that emerged and captivated the Parisian club scene during WWII. Highly recommended.’

‘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…’
