A Nazi comedy directed by Taika Waititi? Well, it’s certainly one way to start a new year. But an even better way to end it, was to speak to the man himself, alongside cast-members Alfie Allen, Thomas McKenzie and Roman Griffin Davis, when the collective were in London to promote this family production – and one that isn’t shy of controversy.
Waititi tells us about his decision to play Adolf Hitler in the movie, and the challenges in navigating his way around the film’s tricky tonality. Meanwhile Allen talks about his time spent on set with Sam Rockwell, and the two younger members of the cast discuss their experience making this film, and how important it is a modern climate that people their age have a voice.
Watch all three interviews in full below:
Jojo is a lonely German boy who discovers that his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his imaginary friend — Adolf Hitler — Jojo must confront his blind nationalism as World War II continues to rage on.
