Hilarious and Heartbreaking
3 October 2019 | by ljcosySee all my reviews

This is an amazing movie, it's not for everyone. It's a dark movie in parts and hilarious in the rest. It forces you to look at humanity at its best , worst and dumbest. A lot of people will not be able to get past the idea of Hitler but Taika does not paint a glorious picture of him, it's probably accurate as a Trump like buffoon spouting oddities and nonsense. The two young boys are amazing and smarter than most of the adults. The cast was wonderful in their roles playing it straight and making it that much more hilarious.
