Django Unchained, an action entertainment flick by Quentin Tarantino hit the theatres around 2012 to great success and praise. The film is exceptionally great with its western influence and classic approach to storytelling. Today at Life is a Chance, we are reviewing Django Unchained.
Warning: Not suggested for the younger audience, appropriate for 18+ only.
The film is set in the mid-'80s where slavery still exists. Therefore we find the protagonist Jamie Foxx at a slave trade business being handled by the Speck brothers. Dr. King Schultz apparently a dentist stops them and frees Django for himself. They carry out Schultz's operation of bounty-hunting the Brittle Brothers. Django helps him and gradually gets his much-awaited freedom. The story doesn't end here, which then moves onto a fast freedom pact for Django's wife Broomhilda.
This is where we meet Candyland owner Calvin J. Candie. Calvin, being a charming and cruel person is played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Probably this is one of the best performances by any actor in the cinematic world. The film explores the western background, wonderfully with a brutal look onto the characters and the setting. Broomhilda's freedom requires high stakes, which Django crosses and fires away. The movie is essentially a drama-based plot, where we perceive everything through the characters' lens.
Django Unchained is a brilliant movie, where one gets the raw subtlety and culture being practiced around the West during those unforgettable times. We would recommend this one without any doubt, for anyone who'd like a movie filled with pure performances and acting.
