Really well done film. I can see where people would be mad at it, but honestly I loved it. Really funny, but also a good representation of World War 2 in a comedic and dramatic way.
- Loved the theme of "Dancing for Freedom" throughout the film.
- Hitler was funny throughout
- Realistic but funny
- Loved the change in the boy throughout the movie because of the girl and his mother.
- Scarlet Johansson was robbed, and deserved more screen time.
- Thought hitler could have been more serious, or not serious at all.
- Plot line of sister could have been explained better, along with his mother and father in the resistance.
Overall: 4 out 5 Star film and deserved the award they got.

Een van de betere films over de tweede Wereldoorlog. Heel veel lachen over een jongetje met als beste vriend Adolf die er echter niet voor schuwt om dat verschrikkingen te laten zien.

Heartwarming film that made me laugh so much considering its topic. I love Taika Waititi's humour, the young boys' characters were so lovable and the film was beautifully put together, comparable to Wes Anderson in terms of colour palettes and composition. Would highly recommend.

I’d heard a lot of good reviews for this movie and was def let down. Not much of a plot moving the story forward and I didn’t get attached to any of the characters.

Jojo Rabbit is an anti-hate satire that tells the story of a 10-year-old boy who is indoctrinated into the Hitler's Nazi Youth Camp discovers that his mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic, so this boy has to learn on how to deal with it. Aided by his imaginary friend... Adolf Hitler.
*Yes I said it right. Hitler is his imaginary friend.*
Weirdly for a movie that tells a story about a young boy who wants to be a nazi. The movie shows us about love, acceptance, open-mindedness, and the absurdity & silliness of hate through humor and the view of a 10-year-old kid.
This is a complete contrast from the book that the movie was adapted from, "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens. Which has a dark story. But this movie is cheerful, bright, witty, funny, heartwarming but also heartbreaking at the same time.
There's nothing I can hate about this film. It's a rollercoaster of emotions. You'll feel happy, sad, angry, laughter, and other kinds of emotion. I still can't understand how Taika Waititi nailed this kind of emotion. It's a perfect balance.
Sadly, the movie can be easily misunderstood by some people and might rub people the wrong way.
I highly encouraged everyone to watch this movie. It's one of the most incredible & original stories ever told in cinema. It's bright, heartwarming & funny but doesn't downplay the dark side of the war.
Great imagination, showing aspect of the war through a kid’s eye. Value delivered in a very refreshing way. Love director’s portrait of Hitler.

I rally love Taika Waititi’s movies and this one is no exception. He’s captured this crazy thing between hilarious and devastating which I think is really cool. Another thing is that I have it difficult with today’s child acting but they do it superb in this one.

Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.
This film solidified taika waititi as one of my favourite film makers. The tough subject matter is handled very well and This movie can be make you laugh out loud and cry in the same scene. This is satire done right.
I like this movie because it tackles a tough subject, and it’s able to do it through humor while not passing on intense, challenging, and sad moments.
Fantastic its so great i watched it twice , cinometography is top notch, it has various layers humour, dark, etc

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
BEST TIME TO WATCH - when you’re in the mood for a light-hearted, witty and genuinely funny comedy (with, of course, some very serious undertones)
I love the light-hearted take on what goes on in a little boy’s head. The movie captures what wasn’t unique about many of the German youth, they were fanatically enthusiastic about the political spectrum and their role in it during the mid 40s. The character development is really great too.

This is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. Told through the innocent, brainwashed eyes of a 10-year-old member of the Hiltler Youth, this film is about how people who are different might seem scary, but once you spend time with and get to know them, you might be surprised to find that they're not what you expected them to be. Poignant, funny, heartbreaking, this film has it all and is an essential watch for anyone who likes taking the piss out of Nazis!
Didn’t think I was going to like a movie about Hitler . Turns out it’s about a whole lot more life and people. I laughed and cried. Great movie.
