Last week, Taiki Waititi's black comedy "Jojo Rabbit" won the Toronto International Festival, taking the main award of the show, the Audience Award. Since then, the picture has been predicted to have a great future, and the number of people wishing to see it has multiplied day by day. Now the tape is preparing to enter the cinema screens in a number of countries, including Germany, Turkey, France, Denmark and Sweden. Only domestic film fans have no reason for joy: it became known that Twentieth Century Fox CIS does not plan to release the comedy in USA cinemas.|
The information came from the distributor's press service. Unfortunately, representatives of the company did not give any comments, but this does not prevent us from suggesting the reasons for such a decision. Last year, the Ministry of Culture of the USA Federation did not issue a distribution certificate for the black comedy "Death of Stalin" by Armando Iannucci, having seen in the film"a mockery of history". Then Vladimir Medinsky said that the cancellation is connected with some"moral issues"and concern for the older generation, whom the Italian comedy may offend. Perhaps this time the distributor is trying to avoid repeating history, and with it financial losses.
Let's remind, the plot of the film "Rabbit Jojo" is focused on a German boy who is trying to find his place in the world with the help of a fictional friend - Adolf Hitler. In the mind of a 10-year-old boy, Hitler is not at all what we know him to be, and little Jojo really enjoys spending time with a new friend. However, everything changes when he finds out that her mother is hiding a Jewish girl in the house.
