Our take

Director Rémi Chayé served as an assistant on The Secret of Kells, and the work of its brilliant animation house Cartoon Saloon inspires this Arctic coming-of-age adventure. An ambitious blend of rousing action and artistic delicacy, Long Way North is a hand-crafted ode to imagination and endurance.
