A massive snowstorm leaves Pettson (Stefan Kurt) and his cat Findus without a tree or food for Christmas, but Pettson is too proud to ask his neighbors for help. The sequel to Pettson & Findus: A Little Nuisance, A Great Friendship (2014) has a new actor in the lead, but maintains the same mix of artificial environs and slapstick. The animated Findus still looks like he stepped right out of someone’s computer, and the songs try one’s patience, but kids are likely to find these Yuletide shenanigans OK enough.
2016-Germany. 82 min. Color. Directed by Ali Samadi Ahadi. Cast: Stefan Kurt (Pettson), Marianne Sägebrecht (Beda), Max Herbrechter (Gustavsson). Voice of Roxana Samadi.
