[8.50/10] Klaus (2019)

Klaus (2019)

Quick Review: Though fully hand- painted, and majestically, so, it uses lighting tools to give its 2D graphics depth, and the result is an exquisite classic animation, so skillfully-drawn and meticulous, it often feels like a high-end CGI, but the refreshing, if nostalgic "Klaus" is more than pretty visuals -- it's a daring, yet credible take on the origin of Santa, free of Christmas tropes, but also a sweet, funny and poignant story of growth, care and kindness that starts bleak, but ends with true spark.

Never heard of it. Available on NetFlix? We'll have to watch it.

Really? Poor marketing, I guess. Yes, Alex, it is available at the moment. Make sure to check it out, it's pretty amazing.
