Jojo Rabbit


A comedy where Jojo, a Nazi obsessed ten year old German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) and his invisible best friend Hitler (Taika Waititi) have to deal with the prospect of losing the war, a Jewish girl hiding in the attic, his mother's secret resistance work and the normal problems of growing up, doesn't sounds very likely but Waititi, who wrote and directed this odd little piece has crafted not only a very funny satire of every Nazi film ever filmed but has produced a gentle and an incredibly warm piece on growing up and the loss of innocence .
I am glad it was a comedy , for if filmed as a straight drama it would have lost buckets of charm as well as gaining an overload of trauma and misery.
The movie, at times is laugh-out-loud funny,
However when the reality of true horror of the story needs to be shown then Waititi shows them with such subtle power that those scenes literally rip your heart out


Johansson, a lovely turn

It took at least ten minutes for me to settle down after the quite amusing Hitler character charms himself into the action ( boy did this feel wrong) but after this the wonderful acting and sensitivity by Davis in the lead role and the performances from Scarlett Johansson and Thomasin McKensie ( as
Jojo's mother and the girl in the attic respectively) all drag you in to a story which is all about how a child sees his world .
I must also say something about the child actor Archie Yates who pops up as Jojo's overweight but relentless cheerful and pragmatic best friend. He almost steals the show. His final scene where he and Jojo experience the front line against the advancing Russsian forces is incredibly poignant especially as his character puts down his machine gun and admits that all he wants to do is to go home to cuddle him mother.

The delightful Archie Yates

Jojo Rabbit, like every satire of horrendous real events, has a great deal to say
But it also works as a simple story of a little boy growing up
And on both levels it succeeds in bucketloads .

I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness.

  4. Thanks John. I recently watched 'Look who's back' a German comedy about Hitler returning to the present day - and had some qualms about watching it. I feel the same about this viewing this film - I think because I have a Jewish friend and I know he will be disgusted with this, so am not sure I will. On the one hand it's better to laugh at what Churchill called the Nazeees - after all 'Allo, allo'and 'Dad's army' were doing it years ago, on the other I wonder if it would be shown in Israel? Just an observation - not a history lesson!

  5. Yes, history has to be confronted. I'm sure it has warmth and insight. Looking at the Jerusalem Post and the Times of Israel it has divided opinion there, but is being shown.

  6. I thought it was wonderful, as a very occasional cinema-goer persuaded to go on the recommendation of my daughter. I wouldn't call it just a comedy or even just a black comedy though - there are insufficient laughs for that, for me, and such simple description does not do it justice. I would call it a very weird mix of black comedy, fantasy and drama that mixes humour with deep but subtle insightinto true horrors. Briliant, although I can see how and why some might detest it.

    5. Some people I have discussed it with seem to have completelyt missed many subtleties, including references to rats that sound just like references to rats until one recalls the propaganda films.

    8. I am going on a bit today... but I also actually loved what some people have criticised, namely the use of current idioms and non-German accents, making the whole tale perhaps more relevant still, rather than pretending the basic awfulness is consigned to the past. My daughter, aged 31, whose cinema pass has taken her to at least a film a week for many years, said it is one of the best films she has ever seen. (I will shut up now. Goodnight).
