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.

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