The Best Satire Ever

This move was absolutely the best. Funny, witty, and not afraid to delve into darker subjects. The ending was a little too dark for me, and my children as it was implied that the Nazis got shot, one of my children kept asking me if the children got shot, but we never see. Keep in mind we are not laughing with Hitler but at Hitler and his goons. There is one fuck off, and a couple of uses of shit. There are lots of anti-Jew statements in this movie and if your children don't get that then don't let them watch it. We don't want them going round saying this as the truth.

Fantastic film

We really enjoyed this as a family, my daughter is 11 and although the theme is very horrifying, the way it is portrayed is brilliant for adults and preteens. My daughter enjoyed the Once served by Morris Gleitzman, so understood the basics of what happened. Some bad language, but certainly no worse than they're hearing at school.
