While critics have argued whether the film is astounding or parasitic, Jojo Rabbit has put in its basket six Oscar nominations.


Which does not answer the question, but is just another reason to see in person how to satirize Nazism through the eyes of a 10-year-old kid. This is exactly the age of the main character. In the meantime, director Tayka Whiteyti (a New Zealander who made a funny movie even about Thor - Ragnarok) seems to be pulling his unadulterated self to set the tone of the story (written by himself in a novel entitled Caging Skies and sounding rather different). Taika has another important role here - with a diagonal bang and a short mustache he plays Hitler, but in the role of an imaginary friend of the boy Jojo. He is a German boy who wants to be a Nazi, even though he refuses to bend a rabbit's neck at the preparatory camp and leaves it with a nickname. And then he falls into a trap: his mother (a wonderful Scarlett Johansson) has hidden a Jewish girl in their home, which leads to a ridiculous and touching identification of the enemy (at first the Jews have horns, then they put butterflies in his stomach). As Jojo grows up and breaks the misconceptions of the world and war in his head, the viewer is mesmerized - by the little Roman Griffin Davis in the role, and by the beautiful and light Wessandersonian surrealism of the film, which does not threaten even the sight of hanged men and women and is woven with funny moments. However, in many of them, laughter never comes out of the throat.
