If you're open to COTS, Object Domain can both forward- and
reverse-engineer Python code (it is written in Java).  I've
used it successfully for relatively simple code, and it seems
to work well and be a reasonably well-designed tool.

I don't know of any other UML tool that has those features.

Also, amongst its features:
"Full Python source code for documentation and glossary
generation is included allowing customization and extension."
I haven't experimented with that, though.
