    I am happy to announce that Django, the biopic about Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt (brilliantly interpreted by Reda Kateb who was just nominated for his performance in the Best Actor category at this year’s Cesar Awards) is coming to Itunes  Amazon, GoogleMicrosoft, Sony and local platforms on February 6th (next Tuesday!).

    "Played to Perfection" - Indiewire

    “One of the Best Scores” - The Hollywood Reporter

    “Musically, (…), the film is a treat” - Screen Daily

    Django is the toast of 1943 Paris, thrilling audiences with his distinctive brand of “hot jazz” and charming his admirers including his muse played by Cécile de France (Hereafter, Chinese Puzzle). But even as the rise of Nazism forces Reinhardt - whose music is considered degenerate under the Third Reich - to make a daring escape from Paris, he refuses to be silenced as his music becomes a form of protest.If you missed it in the theaters, now is your chance to see this critically acclaimed film at home!
