Movie review: Nazi satire ' Jojo Rabbit ' is a hilarious riot

It was World War II in Nazi Germany. Johannes "Jojo" Betzler was a 10-year-old boy living with his mother, Rosie. His father was away fighting in the war somewhere, while his sister Inge died of influenza. To keep himself amused, Jojo had an imaginary friend -- a foolish Adolf Hitler -- from whom he asked advice. When Jojo balked at killing a rabbit at Capt. Klenzendorf's Hitler Youth training camp, he was teased with the nickname "Jojo Rabbit." He would later discover a dangerous secret her mother kept in a wall in their upstairs room.

His role was complex with the ethical decisions which his character faced as a young boy, but Davis was able to play it delightfully light with wide-eyed innocence, as Waititi envisioned the role.

As writer and director, Taika Waititi infused his wacky sense of humor into Leunen's grim book. Making fun of Hitler and Nazi Germany is definitely not expected to be everybody's cup of tea, but he went for it. Compared to the riotous gag in "The Producers" where Hitler was a very gay flamboyant dancer, Waititi's version of Der Fuhrer was silly but still maintained some sinister in him. Waititi treated Jojo's unexpected discovery about a certain girl (played by Thomasin McKenzie) with tenderness and sensitivity.
