Django on DVD

Jim GallaherJim Gallaher Staunton, VA 2012 ALD La Brune
Just received my "Django" DVD (French with English subtitles, pre-ordered through Amazon). I'm loving it! A must-have for GJ fans.

    Hi Jim are you talking about Django the movie of Etienne Comar (which for me, is definitely not a must-have but a must-avoid), or the 4-DVD box with different documentaries about Django (which is a must have)

    The Comar movie. I didn't have any expectations approaching biography, just entertainment :)

    PapsPier, what don't you like about the movie? I haven't seen it.

    I felt like it was a gypsy version of "The Sound of Music" - complete with cartoon Nazis. I kept waiting for Julie Andrews to come out singing Do Re Mi.

    A better story might have shown how the war separated Django and Stephane, and how that affected them personally & musically. A real in-depth biography would be more interesting, I think, because Django was such a character. As one film critic wrote, the "escape from Nazis" story has been done way too much.

    The one part that brought tears to my eyes was when he smashed his guitar to hide it in the snow.
