The story will be, to my understanding, focused on a short period of time: when Django tries to cross 3times without success Switzerland during WWII to flea Paris in 1943 (the German administration wanted him to play in Germany, Naguine was pregnant, he didnt feel so safe in Paris).
So the background is fact based but because it is so short there will be a lot of imagined things...
And I am not sure I like that. The guy who helped the director to write the movie wrote a book with the same idea. It is called Crazy about Django and it tells really really losely the story of Django through the eyes of three women (fictive women) who played important roles for Django. I didnt like that book, for me, the created facts didnt match what we know of Django.
ANyway we ll see...

We forget sometimes how difficult it might be for modern listeners to get past the sound and arrangements of older music and hear the real genius underneath.

I'm not sure what's the big deal about Stochelo. He played the Django solos note for note, at least that is my understanding, and I can't think of any other guitarist doing it better than him.
