Movie Info

When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy's worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.

  • It's busy material, but boldly ambitious and gloriously free from Christmas clichés.

  • It's a treat to see a modern animated film that isn't afraid of absurd sight gags and bleakly funny lines of dialogue.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] serviceably sprightly mix of attitude and altruism that purports to explain how children every Christmas came to eagerly await the wrapped bounty from a kind, portly figure in a red suit.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Clichés inhibit "Klaus" from achieving instant-classic status, but the film is winning enough that it's worth a place in a family Christmas-movie library

    Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An old-school, PG-rated animation, encompassing some digital wizardry, but generally clinging to a nostalgic, hand-drawn look, with a late-blooming Christmas theme.

  • Frankly, it all seems much too complicated for what it is. And instead of making audiences love Christmas more, it raises the rather unfortunate question of why we believed it in the first place.
