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.

"Long Way North" combines thrilling adventure with a slightly somber mood. It's a beautiful trip, even if it's a little chilly and sad when it finally gets to where it's going.

The sort of cartoon discerning parents are constantly seeking to enrich their kids' imaginations.

The story isn't flashy and neither is the animation in "Long Way North," qualities that give the film a certain low-key charm in an age of fast-moving sagas eye-poppingly served.

Stunning stylized visuals, girl power and a strong rooting interest fuel a wonderfully old-fashioned tale.

It's a proper animation buff's piece of work, and admittedly a little slow to get its yarn ripping, but mesmerising and moving in the later stretches.
