It's promising, but the animation is simple, the British voice cast under-powered, and neither penicillin nor modern CPR surely have any part in a story set in 1882.

Suitable for children, the movie is certainly different in terms of its subject matter from your standard-issue animated work.

There's such a simple grace to the animation in Long Way North that deserved a simpler, more graceful story.

Sympathetic characters, action on the high seas, frozen landscapes... and an unforgettable heroine. [Full review in Spanish]

With its simplistic perspective, Long Way North risks being merely a nice gesture instead of a poetic, ice-breaking guide that points towards progress.

What it lacks in invention and tension, it makes up in painterly beauty and a kind of tough sweetness that is never in danger of spoiling into sentimentality.

While it doesn't sail into new territory, Long Way North is told in an enchanting manner with equal focus on the animation as well as strong character development.

Where most post-Shrek animated films are manic and all too eager to please, Rémi Chayé's deliberately paced Long Way North tells its story with clarity and an urgent calm.

Rémi Chayé's Long Way North is a lovely, traditionally animated film that falls a little short in the story department.
August 9, 2016
The characterisation is particularly strong: the goal-driven, hard-working, clever and brave Sasha ultimately wins over even the most hard-hearted of navvies.
