Jojo Rabbit
USA, 2020 | Dauer: 108min | FSK: 12 | Regie: Taika Waititi Darsteller: Roman Griffin Davis, Rebel Wilson, Alfie Allen, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson

Writer-director Taika Waititi (»Thor: Ragnarok«, »What We Do In the Shadows«) brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Davis) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. Audacious to a fault and boldly creative in a style reminding of Wes Anderson but with Waititis own satirical quirks, this edgy nd intriguing film about a German boy discovering what lies Nazi grown-ups told, combines universally spectacular acting with a blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas.
