#JojoRabbit ending EXPLAINED: What did the final scene mean in Jojo Rabbit?

Jojo Rabbit is a new film seeing during World War Two - but it is not your average war film. It sees Jojo (played by Roman Griffin Davis) a young Hitler Youth grappling with the fact his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is stowing a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. The film has many twists and turns, but what did that final scene mean?

Jojo Rabbit is truly heartwrenching at times, and the final scene, while also slightly silly, shows the town reeling and trying to come back from a horrific war.

So far, Jojo has come on a journey to realise that the Jews are not what he thought, and he has slowly debunked a huge amount of the propaganda served to him by his Hitler Youth leaders (Sam Rockwell, Alfie Allen and Rebel Wilson.)

As the film comes to an end, he realises even the Gestapo can not tell the difference between a Jewish and non-Jewish girl, when Elsa (McKenzie) pretends to be Jojo’s sister during an inspection.

Despite getting the date of her birth wrong, Captain Klezendorf (Rockwell) does not confess her true identity to the Gestapo officer (Stephen Merchant) and instead goes along with the lie, showing Jojo how even some of his Nazi comrades do not really want to see hurt and anguish come to Jews.

This confirms his mother was right, though sadly his mother has already been discovered as anti-Nazi by the establishment, and hanged for her crimes in a truly terrible moment.

This helps Jojo realise the true monster his imaginary friend is, and after he realises the Allied forces have arrived, he boots his imaginary friend out of the window.

Soon enough, the Americans arrive to free the town, yet the Nazi soldiers remain and try to get their youth to fight back and protect the town.

Jojo is given a coat and gun to shoot at the Allies but sees how stupid and reckless the war has become, especially when the Nazis have already lost, so he chooses to run away.
