bouldermanGreat origins story but why say "Christmas" with no reference to Christ, I'm not religious but I think 'festive' would be better
mysteryfanWell it's a new take on the age old Christmas Story, that's a positive. But i guess i am sick of animation movies now, or I have really grown older. Rating - 6/10
Linkmaster89It's touching the soul.
Cynicus RexAn unpretentious and charming storyline backed by a wonderful art style.
chunkylefungaCute enough, if a bit naff in parts.
Ok for a quiet sunday afternoon with the family.
Doesn't deserve to be on imdb's top 250 list, I'm confident it will drop out of it in 2020.
Jace LightnerThis was phenomenal!!! I loved every second !
fireferretoA great and compelling story with extraordinary animation style!! Amazing!!
SiskoidKlaus 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.
orzixThe animation alone is something to behold. Great story too
razvanciub8agreat until the cheesy pop song comes in... 6/10
BareLolkNicely 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.
