Everyone sees a comedy that literally doesn't make them laugh for a moment. That happened to me with Jojo Rabbit, but not purely because it wasn't my type of humor. Look, it's hard to say that I've never laughed at jokes that ridicule some serious history. It would make me hypocritical - I consider myself a moral being who takes painful history very seriously, but it didn't absolve me of any action that contradicts it. And yet I have rarely felt so strongly that I was seeing a film without a right to exist, and I do mean that in the strictest sense. In such a situation I consider my personal ability to put things into perspective as a quality to be rejected.

Apparently we've reached a point where an entire generation has become estranged from the ability to remember (I thought so before, but that aside) and distinguish sharp satire from shameless exploitation. With Jojo Rabbit, Waititi literally pulls out all the hobbyhorses and open doors that are directly related to Nazism and anti-Semitism. Can Waititi do that? Sure, because that's how Fox/Disney sees artistic freedom. Would he then have to choose that? You'd beg not, but it's too late for that. Even more problematic than the film itself, I find the perception of an audience that can only absorb the past in parodies and parodies. Anyone who thinks he has a sense of history, but finds this film hilarious, can use the mirror to study his split personality more closely, that's not my packie an. In any case, I see the film as a big bankruptcy.

Only the good acting of Scarlett Johansson and Thomasin McKenzie prevents this pitiful mess of a film, which consists of a jumble of poorly developed and often stolen ideas, from getting the lowest possible score. While it looks like director/screenwriter Taika Waititi has at least watched The Great Dictator, All Quiet On The Western Front and Die Blechtrommel, among others, this is more like a long episode of 'Allo 'Allo gone the wrong way. starring Sam Rockwell as Captain Gruber, Rebel Wilson as Helga, Stephen Merchant as Herr Flick and Thomasin McKenzie as one of the 'Brottish Earmen'. Waititi himself plays the part of Adolf Hitler as an inferior comic variant like Roger DeBris in the illustrious play 'Springtime For Hitler'. While it is clear that we are seeing Nazi Germany through the eyes of a child, that does not explain all the inconsistencies in the screenplay. But the worst part is there's nothing to laugh about unless you're rolling on the floor with laughter as Jojo gleefully sings "Heil Hitler" as he strolls down the street. This is certainly not controversial, rather adolescent and the only offensive moment is the tacky reference to the legendary conclusion of 'All Quiet On The Western Front' (The Butterfly). And it's also a mystery why Waititi is trying to put a serious spin on all the crap he's been treating us to in the last quarter.

Well entertained, what starts as a very light-hearted (sometimes almost Allo Allo style-like) comedy film unfolds as a film with its heart in the right place.

And on top of that comes a cast that does a great job.

Glad there are still movies like this in theaters.

4*
