Jojo Rabbit is a satirical black comedy about a young German boy living through the end of World War II. Portrayed as his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler gives some really bad advice to Johannes “Jojo” Betzler through a series of conversations that test his affection for the Fuhrer. Filled with farcical humour, there are moments of tragedy which initially seem out of place, but ultimately give the film a surprising gravity (Klaus Ming January 2020).
