Slant Magazine - Steven Scaife
Sergio Pablos’s film is essentially a metaphor for its own unique and refreshing mode of expression.
75 - Matt Zoller Seitz
The goofy and charming Klaus probably plays better if you don't know going in that it's a Santa Claus origin story.
TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
It’s far more successful with holiday magic than it is with character-based comedy, but that’s not enough of a flaw to keep young audiences (and their parents) from potentially turning this feature into a cherished annual tradition.
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
Sergio Pablos' Klaus invents its own unexpected and very enjoyable origin story for the big guy who gives out toys every Christmas eve. Shaking off most Yuletide cliches in favor of a from-scratch story about how even dubiously-motivated generosity can lead to joy, it contains echoes of other seasonal favorites (especially, in a topsy-turvy way, Dr. Seuss' Grinch) while standing completely on its own.
The New York Times - Glenn Kenny
It all moves along so amiably, and offers such consistently delightful visuals, that the conventional plot points, up to and including an inevitable “but I can explain” bit, are entirely digestible.

Klaus (2019)

When Jesper distinguishes himself as the Postal Academy's worst student, he is sent to Smeerensburg, a small village located on a icy island above the Arctic Circle, where grumpy inhabitants barely exchange words, let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up and abandon his duty as a postman when he meets local teacher Alva and Klaus, a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys.
