Jojo Rabbit is one of the films that shined at the 2020 Academy Awards. The film, directed by Taika Waititi, succeeded in bringing home the Oscar Best Adapted Screenplay. The film was also included in one of the Best Picture nominations in the event.

We have seen various perspectives on the experience of World War II from various characters. Starting from a Jewish pianist on The Pianist (2002), to a businessman who initially only wanted to take advantage through Schindler’s List (1993). We have also seen the point of view of Hitler’s followers in the film Downfall (2004).

Taika Waititi is famous as a filmmaker with a distinctive humor style. He executed Jojo Rabbit with a touch of comedy satire that would make the audience feel uncomfortable while laughing.

Adolf Hitler as a friend of imagination is described as a doctrine that stopped in Jojo’s brain. We will also see how war can be a frightening and traumatic field for a German boy who was actually a victim of the Nazi regime.
