Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is a ten-year-old boy whose invisible friend is the fuhrer Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi) himself. He is fanatized by Nazi ideas and goes to a Hitler youth camp with his friend Yorki (Archie Gates), where he is nicknamed Jojo Rabbit for being unable to kill a rabbit. Jojo lives with his mother Rosie (Scarlett Johansson) while his father is fighting in Italy. One day he discovers that a Jewish teenager, Elsa Korr (Thomasin McKenzie), hides in his house, with whom he is gradually strengthening a relationship.
“Jojo Rabbit” is a dramatic comedy about bigotry, indoctrination, and anti-Semitism. It is set in the final stage of the Second World War and is told from the point of view of Jojo, a ten-year-old boy who belongs to the Hitler Youth.
The strong point of the film is in the interpretations. Roman Griffin Davis, like Jojo, is the soul of the story, interpreting with ease and ease a character full of innocence, immaturity, naivety. Scarlett Johansson is Jojo’s mother, conveying her feelings with sobriety. Also outstanding is the performance of Thomasin McKenzie as the Jewess Elsa. The thematic progression of Jojo and Elsa’s relationship is tender, sensitive, yet predictable.
The secondary ones help to create their own universe. The interpretation of Adolf Hitler as an invisible friend by the director and screenwriter, Taika Waititi, is funny, cartoonish (inspired by Charles Chaplin). It is effective as a counterpoint in portraying Jojo’s psychological conflict, always advising in the worst way. Sam Rockwell is a one-eyed and disenchanted Nazi officer. Archie Yates is Jojo’s nice chubby friend.
Although it may sometimes seem like a black comedy, in general its humor is white with hints of absurdity and some sentimentality. Its basic intention is a personable satire on fanaticism and indoctrination, especially the ease of manipulating children. The setting is outstanding, the costumes, the photography full of bright colors… and a soundtrack that starts with the Beatles and ends with David Bowie.
It is, along with its essence of satire, a learning fable told from the eyes and imagination of a child (prior to the loss of innocence), together with a platonic story of childhood love, which manages to maintain attention and start more of a smile.
