This film is expected to be nominated for Oscars. I saw it reduce a friend to tears and heard others laughing. I did not quite, find it that powerful.
The film centred round a young boy being trained to be a Nazi. It showed how people could be indoctrinated to follow Nazis and / or had to go along with Nazi’s for their safety. I liked this concept which is a true reflection. I do not like it when people tar all German’s with the same brush and don’t understand how normal people had to just fit in; like how men were conscripted to fight for England. Based around this concept could have been really poignant.
I was put off by attempt at humour, it jarred with the poignancy; in particular Rebel Wilson. It does not feel right to laugh at a film about Nazi. A friend has tried to explain that it is about laughing at Nazi’s, yet still that does not make me comfortable.
Overall I’m not sure about this film. It was watchable. Would not recommend but if anyone was wanting to watch for example as wanted out of interest to see Oscar nominees, would not strongly try to dissuade them.
