In 1943, during the German occupation, Django Reinhard the gypsy guitar hero, is at the height of his art. Every night he thrills Paris at the Folies Bergères with his music, meanwhile his brothers are pursuing and murdered. When the german propaganda wants to send him to Berlin for several concerts he feels the danger and decides to escape in Switzerland with one of his fans’ help, Louise de Klerk. To pass, he goes to Thonon-les-Bains, near the Lac Léman, with his pregnant wife Naguine and his mother Negros. But the escape is more complicated that he thought. Nevertheless, he still tries to resist with his music, his humour and looks for music perfection…

A series of works to renovate and modernise the premises is currently ongoing at the Alliance Française. Please note that la galerie and la médiathèque will be closed from 20 to 25 August. The works will end early September and you will soon be able to discover a whole new Alliance Française with improved facilities and a new Café relocated at the 1st floor (le café Diabolo) for an even better experience. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused during the works and we look forward to showing you the new and upgraded Alliance Française.
