Pure unadulterated fiction. Django Reinhardt played guitar in the Paris bistros during WW II and was a favorite of the German Army officers, including the Gestapo. He was a fabulous guitarist, but hero? Don't think so. His fretting hand was maimed in a fire. But I'm sure the movie will be enjoyable. Here's a clip of him performing in 1945. Enjoy. Lotsa luck.

Below is an excerpt from an NPR article on Django:

"Reinhardt's passion for music was almost matched by Paris in the 1930s. Boulou Ferre, the son of Pierre Ferre, one of the rhythm

guitarists in the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, was a child prodigy on the guitar, too. He says his father described a city bursting with talent.

"It's the Paris of Henry Miller, of the legendary restaurant and club La Coupole, in Montparnasse," Boulou Ferry says. "It's the Paris of Ernest Hemingway. It's Paris before the war. Maurice RavelClaude DebussyGabriel FaureErik Satie — French musicians were under their influence. But it was also the era of swing. The arrangements of Fletcher Henderson [and] Duke Ellington's records brought a true revolution to France."This was the environment that gave birth to the Quintet. Drawing inspiration from early American jazz, the group combined Reinhardt's intensity with violinist In War, A Golden Age They were the toast of Paris and making a decent living when war broke out. The group was on tour in London in 1939, and Grappelli decided to stay. The Roma musicians rushed back to their families. In spite of the Nazis' ethnic-cleansing campaign — more than a million Roma were exterminated along with five times that many Jews — Reinhardt and his band prospered. The Germans used Paris basically as their rest-and-relaxation center, and when the soldiers came, they wanted wine and women and song. And to many of them, jazz was the popular music, and Django was the most famous jazz musician in Paris," Dregni says. "And it was really a golden age of swing in Paris, with these gypsies living kind of this grand irony."In 1940, with "La Marseillaise" banned, Reinhardt wrote a new anthem that struck a chord with listeners across France. "Nuages" ("Clouds") became Reinhardt's best-known composition — a bittersweet ode for occupied France.

I have seen the movie some weeks ago. It is not a documentary covering the life of Django Reinhardt, but a story based on history about the WW2 years of Django and how he survived them.
If you like Gypsy Jazz, you will for sure enjoy it.
