After Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi is back with Jojo Rabbit, out in French theaters on January 29, 2020. A satire of the Nazism with uninhibited humor based on Christine Leunens’ novel Caging Skies. Let’s discover the trailers together!

Jojo Rabbit is the upcoming movie by Taika Waititi based on Christine Leunens’ novel Caging Skies and said to be out in French theaters on January 22, 2020. A rather special movie since the latter aims at being a satire Nazism but with a quirky and uninhibited humor, including a moviemaker playing Adolf Hitler, the version of the hero’s imaginary friend. A genuine UFO by Thor: Ragnarok moviemaker before he goes make the fourth Thor movie called Love and Thunder for Marvel Studios.

As for the cast, we have Scarlett Johansson (Lucy, Avengers: Endgame…), Thomasin McKenzie (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Top Gun: Maverick…), Taika Waititi (What we Do in the Shadow, Thor: Ragnarok…), Sam Rockwell (Three Billboard, Vice…), Rebel Wilson (The Hustler, Cats…), Stephen Merchant (Logan, The Girl in the Spider’s Web…), or even Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, The Predator…), a crazy comedy looking like a Wes Anderson movie with its absurd and fantastic situations. You want to find out more? Let’s discover the trailer!

Review:

 Jojo Rabbit is a feature film as curious as moving because of how it deals with the war and the youth indoctrinated by the nazis. A very bold comedy that manages to make us smile even though the topic is serious and shows how ridiculous the face of nazism is, that the film director perfectly plays, and their followers. But don't think the movie is fun from beginning to end... The weight of history is heavy and falls as along as the movie goes on to provide us with tough and touching sequences, as if it was to remind us of the violence and the horrors of that time. The different movements of ambiance are well used, omnipresent, like a sort of schizophrenia that leads to a deep, dynamic and complex movie. A nice cinematic slap to discover urgently!
