One day, Jojo found a Jewish girl named Elsa Korr in the attic of his residence. Elsa immediately stopped Jojo, who intended to tell the Gestapo his whereabouts.
The young woman said that Jojo’s mother would be killed if she was caught hiding it. Jojo finally agreed to cover up Elsa’s whereabouts.
Even though this film has a dark World War II time setting, the comedic elements are so thick. Adolf Hitler, who is known to be fierce in history, has successfully appeared as a funny character throughout this film.
WHEN he was only 10 years old, Johannes “Jojo” Betzler (played by Roman Griffin Davis) had to grow up faster. Apart from the fact that World War II was raging, he had to become the “head of the family” because his father, who was part of the German-Nazi army, disappeared on the Italian front and his older sister, Inge, died of the flu epidemic.
Jojo lives only with his mother, Rosie Betzler (Scarlett Johansson), who turns out to be anti-Nazi. In fact, Jojo, like a boy his age in Germany, was obliged to serve the Nazi Party, until he joined Deutsches Jongvolk, a junior branch of Hitlerjugend aka Hitler Youth which was the onderbouw of the Nazi Party.
At Jungvolk’s training camp, Jojo is taught Nazi doctrines by the grumpy instructor Fräulein Rahm (Rebel Wilson) and military training by Captain Klenzendorf (Sam Rockwell). Jojo was mocked by “Jojo Rabbit” because in a practice he refused and cried when he was ordered to kill a rabbit.
Even so, Jojo returned to the camp more confident. He mentally awakens after much advice and comfort from Adolf Hitler in the version of an imaginary friend (played by Taika Waititi). Hitler, Jojo’s imaginary friend who is like a surrogate father, gave him a lot of Nazi doctrine.
