Jojo Rabbit

COMING SOON TO CINEMAS26 December 2019
Jojo Rabbit

WWII black comedy from writer-director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), who also stars as a little boy's imaginary friend: Adolf Hitler. Winner of the People's Choice Award at Toronto Film Festival 2019.

The world view of a lonely German boy, a Hitler Youth, is upended when he discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie, Leave No Trace) in their attic. Aided only by his moronic imaginary friend, Hitler, Jojo starts to confront his blind nationalism.

Winner of the Grolsch People's Choice Award, Toronto Film Festival 2019

Joyous but dark. The heaviest of backdrops.

In the end, the audience will leave uplifted by this enthralling, entertaining plea for tolerance and know that they've seen a very Waititi take on World War II (Bowie tracks, robots and all).

If there was ever a time for a story which does nothing but spread love not hate, that time is right now. The bond between mother and son, between new friends and old ones and the idea that we have to mend the self-made fissures in humanity generation by generation - it’s all here. JoJo Rabbit will wrap you up in the cinematic group hug that laughing and crying together in a dark theatre can bring.

Just as it was easy to like 1999 multiple Oscar winner Life Is Beautiful, it was even easier to dislike it, and the same holds true for Jojo Rabbit...

It's a feel-good movie, all right, but one that uses the fake danger of defanged black comedy to leave us feeling good about the fact that we're above a feel-good movie.

What Waititi thinks is shockingly audacious is in fact frustratingly timid, he opts for a gentle prod when maybe a punch would do.

[I]f "Jojo Rabbit" has anything to teach us, it's that sniffles can be an even greater divider.

Disposable frivolity that promises fun at the cinema, if not resonance.

Jojo Rabbit is more of a roast than a reckoning, which I suppose would be fine if it were only aiming for comedy. But this is a movie with lofty humanist ideas.

In its precision, Jojo Rabbit may remind you of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, another comedy in which clownish forces of fascism squared off against love, humour and elegance - both movies feel like they come from the same universe.
