Johannes Betzler is teased by the other children: his knife skills are weak, he can’t throw a grenade to save his life and his 'Heil Hitler!' lacks force. Only with the help of his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi, who also directs) can he hope to win over the rest of the Hitler Youth. But when young Jojo discovers his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Leave No Trace's Thomasin McKenzie) is he forced to step away from his commitment to National Socialism.
Never less than extremely funny, Waititi’s performance as a cracked Adolf Hitler manages to easily overleap any questions of taste, backed up by a hilarious cadre of supporting Nazis (Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson and Alfie Allen). This anti-hate satire from the director of The Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Thor: Ragnarok will win you over.
