A film like Jo Jo Rabbit reminds me of many of the indy films out of Germany in the 80's and 90's but it caught me by surprise by not being a German film at all. Not since the film The Tin Drum have we seen anything this good. One cannot help but fall in love with Jo Jo since he is boyhood and humanity in one bundle. We all know Jo Jo is really a soft rabbit and ready to love and run free but it is not so much a question if Jo Jo can accept and love that which is different but can a world learn to love Jo Jo and see that he to is a human being. This might well be the crux of the issue as acceptance of differences has to flow both ways, a lesson we still have yet to learn in America in 2019, and for that matter, the entire world. A masterpiece every parent should take their kids to see.
It's natural for people to joke and parody the very things that scare us the most, or to ridicule the vilest of people. And that is precisely what JoJo Rabbit does so well. From the opening to a German version of "A Hard Day's Night", accompanied by archival footage of throngs of people screaming at Hitler, you know you're in for a lot of fun. The film doesn't try to minimize the true horror of WWII, nor does it try to get into the Holocaust. Instead, it focuses on the last year of the war in Germany, as seen through the eyes of a 10 year-old boy, who is surrounded by discouraged soldiers, Germans who long for the war to end and children being encouraged to "die for Hitler". In other words, it's the theater of the absurd. And this is why, Jojo's imaginary playmate - an incredibly animated version of Hitler - fits right in. Don't look for any deep meanings here. This is simply a boy trying to make sense of the nonsensical.
A fun and entertaining movie from start to finish . Well acted as well. A type of movie you might want to see again .
A satire on war, nationalism, and the brainwashing of children. It's a dark comedy where a sort of imagined fun-loving Hitler turns bad in the end, and a drunken German soldier (Sam Rockwell) turns good. A 10 year old Nazi enthusiast is changed by the Jewish teenager being hidden by the boy's liberal, humanitarian mother. The child actor is brilliant!! GuruBob says,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,83/100
I'd give it 10 stars if I could. It's rare that a movie of this quality comes around. Mainly a comedy with only a few distressing scenes which pass quickly. This is not a historically accurate documentary but is a fictional account of one boy's attempt to deal with the times he has been born into. Perfect casting of all the major characters makes it all the better. If this film doesn't win an Academy Award then it proves that Hollywood is corrupt.
It very epic, tikita waitika can do no wrong
Loved every minute. Funny, touching, well written, well cast, and well acted. Truly heartwarming. I rarely say "must see in theatres" but this film deserves it as it's beautifully shot.
Truly one of the best movies I have ever seen. Brilliant job of taking a very difficult subject and focusing on the human aspect of living in a time of great uncertainty.
This movie is a "10"
This is one of the BEST movies of the year or the last few years.
Really good movie. Saw it with my 2 girls 21 and 17 and they loved it as well. Funny, sad, well acted, all around a great movie to see with a great story.
Good movie to watch with a packed audience. All the actors are superb. The difficult subject matter weaves into comedy and seriousness effortlessly. The musical choices were also well done.
My 21 yo son texted that he ‘cried like a man’ at the end of this movie. He said it is among the best he he’s seen. When he told me that a friend of JoJo Rabbit “stole the show” I was curious if the movie might be somehow a comedy that normalized or was sympathetic to the racist nationalism that led to WWII. He said, “No, not at all. It was sympathetic to the real lives of people who actually lived and died in that horrible time.” The parallels to life today are frightening. That kids and families all over are experiencing the same realities in similar violence is sobering.
Genius writing! Awesome satire of the Natzi plague. The little historic details weaved into this script are as good as it gets. Movie Entertainment at it's best, look out Oscar her comes JoJo.
So funny, but surprisingly, quite heartwarming as well. So many hilarious performances, from Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi as an imaginary version of Hitler, Alfie Allen, Sam Rockwell, who really surprises in his role, and really, the entire cast.
This is one of the best movies I have seen ..... ever! The writing is fantastic acting amazing and the comedic-dramatic balance is perfect. Everyone in high school and up should see this as a reminder of what happens when small minds, lies and fake news are allowed to fester and spread. This is a most fitting reminder of what comes next if we don't correct our current course.
