Jojo Rabbit ★★★½

CIFF 2019: film #4

“she doesn’t want to talk to me”
“well... you are a nazi”

very worthwhile, but the tonal shifts are somehow too sharp and also too mild simultaneously. this feels like it was missing an element or two. but it’s a difficult topic to spin into a comedy and also show immense and genuine empathy for, and taika did it much better than most could have
