A very unsuccessful mix of genres. I liked the movie as the drama if you remove all the Comedy component. I understand the idea of the Director to show so called "the Nazi romance of" the eyes of the little zombie boy fanatic gradually aware picture of the war in its true colors, but my opinion that are too crooked, clumsy and not the tools.

I don't like:

1. The General atmosphere — bright, cartoonish. Lets assume that we want to show the inner world of the boy  "best friend" but this should be at least some contrast with the real world that the audience could see that the difference. As in "life is beautiful" where the main character was trying to protect his son.

2. Humor. In addition to the first point. To what these scenes of Gestapo siguanea and other the style of Amelie and the films of Wes Anderson? That wants to tell the Director? The viewer is treated to lightly. everything? OK, then why am I then have to take the dramatic moments too, not as a Comedy? I love black humor, can laugh at different.

3. Hitler. Coupled with all the rest of it I do not logged in. As its shouldn't have to show the audience in the scene where Jojo not one is it an imaginary friend, otherwise it is schizophrenia. On 51:18 we see he watches the binoculars for Jojo with mom side. For which was shot this stage? For attempts to call haha at the audience? Then what "Rabbit Gordo" better "Hitler Kaput"?

As you the script for my Comedy film — the little boy has an imaginary friend Chikatilo. It all over it supports, teaches how to dissect a frog. When the boy has problems with people — in school, at home with his parents, Andrei Romanovich helps to solve them the typical manner.

Funny? I for some reason, no.. Then why do I supposed to be funny when the viewing of the film "Rabbit Jojo"? I either laugh in including over hung on the square or not laugh at all. And while watching I sat a stone face and a feeling of disgust to what is happening.

Tragicomedies are the place to be as for example, one of my favorite movies "Knockin heaven" or"goodbye Lenin" where Comedy the tragedy are in the harmony "Rabbit" is this balance I saw did not feel it.

From what like — actors Scarlett Johansson and especially Sam Rockwell and others on level, no claims to whom not.

Again, if the film was shot drama I would put 7 10 but given the very sizeable fly in the ointment

The secret of Waititi that gave us such films as "Thor: Ragnarok" "we did the shadows" was removed and one of the most unique films 2019 "Jojo Rabbit". The film was very provocative and raised a lot of noise.

JoJo — boy, living with his mother (Scarlett Johansson) in Germany the height of the fascist regime at the time of the Second world war. JoJo wants to grow a loyal patriot of his country and becomes a member of the Deutsches jungvolk and visited training camp. Have Jojo even has an imaginary friend: myself Adolf Hitler, who everywhere over the it gives advice. But the boy's life changes dramatically when he know that his mother had allowed a Jewish girl to hide in their house.


Acting and the characters of this film discouraged. Jojo naive boy who loves to play a Nazi, but not to be. He likes to wear Nazi uniforms, but it is terrified to hurt any living being. It kindness, empathy and curiosity perfectly conveys the young actor Roman Griffin Davis.

Scarlett Johansson plays a loving mother, who with incredible dedication and support of the son in all his endeavors. Realizing how hard growing up without dad, it is trying to combine in ourselves the qualities of both parents. This one of the best roles in the career of Scarlett Johansson, and the film is worth a look as low because of her game.

Jewish girl Elsa striking in their humor and poignant phrases. Watch as between her and Jojo built up a strong friendship is truly touching.


The image of Hitler is to be taken literally, in the end, he imaginary friend Jojo in which combines images of his father who went to war and coach, who Jojo so is not enough. The emergence of an imaginary friend symbolizes that Jojo divorced from reality. He doesn't know what he wants to be really. It is drawn and downed avail.

Satirical image of Hitler proves that the secret of Waititi has a wonderful irony. Look for the actor to the role of Hitler would be wrong course, nobody would not played it is better than himself. Taika shows the excellent work being both an actor and a film Director. Skillfully in terms of subtle humour, irony and satire, directed not enters the boundaries.

This is not just satire

But "Rabbit Joe Joe" is much more than just a black Comedy. The film is striking in its ability to switch from humor to drama, from darkness to light, from thought to absurdity. Quick installation and the Director of Waititi prove that the film is not in vain she won an Oscar for "best adapted screenplay".

Someone can say that this topic is not on what we have to laugh. But this film shows that racism is based on the heap of lies, exaggerations, ignorance and misconceptions. It just on what should be laughing. Publicly. If you really pay attention and wait judgment the movie, you see that as soon as it will evolve, it becomes deeper and deeper. And darker.

Remove this film — risky. Especially for Waititi. But great acting, stunning scenery, and color with the style of Wes Anderson, a wonderfully chosen soundtrack, and the most important themes of innocence, of growing up, of blind faith in ideals, human relationships, friendship and love makes this film one of the most heartfelt.

Well, maybe not the best. Still 2019 was rich in a good movie. But I saw — definitely the best. Talking about the film 44-year-old new Zealand Director Taika waititi of "Jojo Rabbit".

The plot of the film talks about ten-year boy, Jojo (played by Roman Griffin Davis, debut role — Bravo!) who lives in Nazi Germany and how and surrounding children, is a fan of Nazism and wants to serve in the army. On the spring of 1945.

Yet he has a mom (best role Scarlett Johansson) and two friends — fat boy Yorkie and an imaginary friend Adolf Hitler. And in the wall at home he lives a Jewish girl who had been friends with his dead older sister (one of the first roles for Tomasin Mackenzie, please it deserves).

What you'll love this film? The magnificent acting, the operator's work (by the way, was nominated for the Oscar), absurd humor and very sad story which will break your heart. Another of the pluses (or minuses, when looking for one) — a small duration of the film 108 minutes.

About brilliant acting — no exaggeration. In the film so many characters, but but gave full. Johansson his nomination to won the Oscar, it is strange that wasn't nominated Sam school in the role of the captain of Klenzendorf, head of children's training camp. Maybe the critics decided that game of Rockwell too similar to his previous work. Very funny character role from the actress and comedian rebel Wilson.

The humor in the film is very different and very funny. You will laugh in the entire film, except for those moments when you will cry. And resist I've not succeed because this is the story of war the Holocaust, albeit not trying to scrupulously adhere to historical accuracy.

What is this film similar? First of all, laughter through tears and the selected subject "Jojo Rabbit" resembles masterpiece (and benefit) Roberto Benigni's "Life is beautiful". Also reminiscent of "the book Thief", but only the book and not a film that is too glossy and lost is laid in the book of humor. And more "Jojo Rabbit" reminded me of "moonrise Kingdom" by Wes Anderson.

Who does not worth watching this movie? Yes, unless the neo-Nazis and anti-Semites, because they may to make such a mockery of Hitler and Nazism. However, I would recommend them this movie. Perhaps wiser, finally.


When I wrote that write-up, I didn't know neither companies don't tried to obtain a rental license to show this film in Russia. It is not indicator we in the country very much do not OK.
