Trivia

The various military decorations that Captain Klenzendorf wears in the film indicate that he's an heroic combat veteran and not just some administrator or incompetent who's been assigned to babysit the Hitler Youth, to get him out of the way. He has both the Iron Cross 1st and 2nd class (both awarded for personal acts of heroism), a bronze close combat clasp (signifying that he's fought in a minimum of 15 hand-to-hand engagements), a silver tank destruction badge (awarded for individually destroying an enemy tank with a hand-held weapon), and a gold wound badge (meaning that he's been wounded in combat at least 5 times).

Goofs

Towards the end, when the Hitler Youth are sent into battle, Jojo is standing dazed while the other boys rush into combat. However, the eagle on Jojo's uniform is now on his left side. The boys' knives are now on their right side and they are all throwing grenades with their left hands. The film in this scene has been switched from left to right. See more »

Jojo Rabbit will divide critics into ; those who marvel at the latest , comedic , Golden Egg , produced by this goose , Taika Waititi and those that want to tear the goose apart , in an attempt to smear some gold , on their own ability to dissect and criticise . Every kid that walks away from this movie , wanting to be a better person , is a tiny step , to making the world a better place ( the goal of the movie ) Those critics who want to shut that down , before it starts , need to ask themselves " why was everyone but me laughing ? " Update 15/Sept Peoples Choice Award TIFF . Lesson... Never try to PAN (fry) a golden egg ! :-)
