SWING

a film by :Tony Gatlif

Max, an only child, is 10 years old. He loves Manouche jazz, a music he discovered the first time he heard the guitar virtuoso Miraldo play. This music becomes his passion and brings him to the town's Manouche neighbourhood, where he buys an old guitar. Max will learn about Manouche music and culture through the lessons Miraldo agrees to give him. He quickly makes friends with Swing, a young gypsy girl who is the same age as he is and whose charisma, self-confidence and freedom fascinate him.

French Synopsis :

Max, fils unique, est âgé d'une dizaine d'années. C'est un fan de Jazz manouche, qu'il a découvert en écoutant jouer Miraldo, un virtuose de la guitare. Cette musique devient sa passion et le conduit vers le quartier des manouches où il achète une vieille guitare. Grâce aux cours que Miraldo veut bien lui donner, Max va faire l'apprentissage de la musique et de la culture manouche. Très vite, il devient l'ami de Swing, jeune manouche de son âge qui le fascine par son magnétisme, son assurance et sa liberté.
