What to do on the Christmas holidays Watch "Kevin - Home Alone", of course. But now there is a new star in the Christmas movie heaven and our editor wants you all to see it!
Hello, my name is Anna, I am almost 30 years old and have watched the same cartoon three times in a row in the last two days. Voluntarily. And with tears in my eyes. A real cartoon from 2019. No computer animation. A real rarity in the mainstream. Responsible for my outbreak of tears? "Klaus", THE Christmas film on Netflix from the Spanish film company "Sergio Pablos Animation Studios".
And I know I'm leaning far out of the window BUT I write it here anyway: "Klaus" is better than "Kevin - Alone at home". Why? Sergio Pablos, who made his debut as a director on the film, wanted to give Santa Claus a fresh and incredibly touching original story. And this mission was so fulfilled.

Where is Santa Claus from?
Without wanting to spoil, the Christmas story is retold in "Klaus": Jesper is the worst (and laziest) postman the world has ever seen. In order to properly straighten his calves forward, he is sent to an inhospitable town called "Zwietrachting". There, the Ellenbogners and the Grobs have always fought each other hard. Letters? Are not sent there - the residents of the freezing north have little to say. Jesper is about to give up when he finds support from the local teacher Alva and meets the lonely toy maker Klaus, who lives alone in a hut full of handmade toys. Laughter returns to Zwietrachting with these unusual friendships and everyone else becomes generous, telling magical stories and hanging stockings on their chimneys … But not everyone on the icy island north of the Arctic Circle likes the new discovered sense of community …
No matter if big or small. Even opponents of cartoon will love the entertaining film. The story is told lovingly and without too much sentimentality. The characters themselves are quirky and incredibly adorable. Every disgrace sits. And the visual language is also successful. The winding, uninviting Zwietrachtingen with its wobbly buildings and its intimidating skyline is initially shown in white, black and nebulous gray. But as joy and friendliness gradually find their way into Zwietrachtingen, "Klaus" gradually gains in color spectrum and warm lights. Beautiful!
