Plot summary

What is Klaus movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Klaus" movie plot summary.

Jesper Johansson (Jason Schwartzman) is the lazy and spoiled son of the Royal Postmaster General (Sam McMurray), who has enrolled Jesper (Yekta Kopan) into his postman training academy hoping that it will reform him. Jesper deliberately underperforms, forcing his father to finally send him to the distant island town of Smeerensburg with the task of posting six-thousand letters within a year. If Jesper fails, he will be cut off from the family's fortune. Upon arrival, it is explained to Jesper by sarcastic ferryman Mogens (Norm MacDonald), and bitter teacher-turned-fishmonger Alva, that the town's two familial clans - the Ellingboes and the Krums - comprise nearly all of the populace and are perpetually at war, spending more time fighting each other than writing letters.
While desperately searching for people to post letters, Jesper finds an isolated dwelling outside of town. There he meets a reclusive woodsman named Klaus, who has a house filled with handmade toys. Terrified by Klaus' imposing appearance, Jesper flees and leaves behind a sad drawing he had found from one of Smeerensburg's children. Klaus forces Jesper to lead him to the house depicted in the drawing, and then makes Jesper secretly deliver a toy to the boy inside.
Word of this event spreads to other children; they go to Jesper the next day, each believing that they will receive a toy if they send him a letter. Jesper capitalizes on the idea and asks Klaus if he can donate his toys; Klaus agrees provided that they operate at night, and that Jesper continues to deliver the toys in secret. Soon, more and more children begin writing letters to Klaus. When Jesper tells them that Klaus only gives toys to good children, and always knows when any child misbehaves, the acts of kindness they perform gradually inspire the rest of the townsfolk to end their ancient dispute. Alva reopens her school to help the children learn to read and write.
