SINGAPORE - How do you talk to a child about genocide? The brilliant mind behind some of this decade's best comedies has an idea: do it as a tale about children swept up in a national mania for racial purity. Through their innocent eyes, the murderous absurdity of the concept can be laid bare.
It sounds great, on paper anyway. Jojo Rabbit (PG13, 103 minutes, opens Jan 2, 2.5 stars) does not lack good intentions and a strong premise. What is does not have is coherence or jokes.
