    Nicely thought out origin story about Santa. I love the animation and visual design!
    An enjoyable christmas movie overall, but the clichés in the third act threw me off and bored me a bit. The ending is nice though.

    Klaus is a very charming animated take on Santa Claus' human origins, with just the right whiff of the supernatural to fit the Christmas legend, its addition a lazy postal worker sent to an isolated northern island where he must insure a large number of letters in a year. His partnership with a reclusive toymaker takes us in a direction you can well imagine. The little town is initially better suited to the Addams Family or a Tim Burton cartoon than a Christmas story, but it has a "character arc" as much as the postman and Mr. Klaus. It's its own character and I liked living there for the span of the run time. The film speaks to the communal power of Christmas and replaces the lead's selfishness with the proper spirit. There's a lot of cartoon comedy, but the ending is quite touching too. And it looks quite nice, a hybrid of 2D and 3D animation, highly designed and beautifully lit. There are a lot of Santa movies, but this one brings a fun, fresh perspective to it. 4 years 5 months ago
