Christmas & Co / Santa & Cie (N/C 8+)

Christmas is on its way and with it disaster. The 92,000 workers responsible for manufacturing children’s toys all become sick at the same time. This is a tough moment for Santa, better known as Father Christmas. He is left with no choice but to make an emergency trip to Earth with his reindeer to search for a remedy. When he arrives, he has to find some allies to help him save the magic of Christmas.

Cast Alain Chabat, Golshifteh Farahani, Pio Marmaï, Bruno Sanches

Dir Alain Chabat | 2017 | France| 99 mins | Institut Français

Most memorable are the scenes revealing Santa’s inability to adapt to the modern world… Lots of cute comedy. Hollywood Reporter
