Facing a packed theater of stiff soldiers of the Third Reich, it is readily apparent that renowned guitarist Django (Reda Kateb, A Prophet) is a long way from entertaining audiences in the famous clubs of Paris’s Quartier Pigalle. Yet the poised maestro doesn’t see anything morally wrong with his choice of gigs, despite overt warnings of punishment if anyone is to stomp, dance or even clap. The reappearance of a past lover, Louise de Klerk (Cécile De France, High Tension), now a member of the Resistance, spurs Django to acknowledge the despair millions across Europe are facing. With Louise’s help, Django is transported with his family to the French-Swiss border to avoid a propaganda-infused musical tour of Germany. But his time on the border proves to be a true test to his evolving character and a turning point not only his own life, but in history.
