Taika Waititi’s World War II Satire
When I first saw the trailer for JoJo Rabbit, I knew I wanted to see this quirky film. However, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.
Now that I’ve seen it, I’m still not sure how they managed to pull off making a satire out of a war movie.
Did I like it? Absolutely, yes.
The satirical style gives the film a casual feel, even though the subject matter is very serious.
This allowed me to internalize more about what it would have been like to live in Germany towards the end of WW2.
The movie is both humorous and sad, but mostly it showed the humanity of each of the characters in the film.
JoJo starts out as a child showing blind nationalism, but goes through the process of learning to use his mind and follow his heart.
