About the Movie
LONG WAY NORTH is set in the late 19th century Saint Petersburg. Sacha, a young girl from the Russian aristocracy, dreams of the Great North and anguishes over the fate of her grandfather, Oloukine, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer who has yet to return from his latest expedition to conquer the North Pole.

Sacha has always been fascinated by the adventurous life of her grandfather and has the same calling as Oloukine to be an explorer. But Sacha’s parents, who already made arrangements for her marriage, strongly disapprove of the idea to say the least. Defying her destiny, Sacha flees her home and launches an adventure-filled quest toward the Great North in search of Oloukine and his ship.

LONG WAY NORTH features an exceptional English voice cast of Chloé Dunn, Vivienne Vermes, Peter Hudson, Antony Hickling, Tom Perkins, Geoffrey Greenhill, Claire Harrison-Bullett, Bibi Jacob, Martin Lewis, Tom Morton, Leslie Clack, Kester Lovelace and Damian Corcoran. *French voice cast includes Christa Théret, Feodor Atkine, Thomas Sagols, Rémi Caillebot, Audrey Sablé, Fabirn Briche, Gabriel Le Doze and Boris Rehlinger.

My Take on the Movie
This was a fun movie that really allows you to experience the arctic in a while new way. The story brings back the great director Rémi Chayé back. I loved the work of Rémi Chayé from the past, especially his work from “The Secret of Kells.” In this great new movie you get a very strong female character. Sasha was a fun young character that really challenges herself to be able to try and find her missing grandfather.

While there are some aspects of the story that are beyond reality, you truly can set aside this and have fun. By doing this, you will see a girl that truly uses her creativity and imagination to be able to move her character and the story forward. The story of the movie was exciting and a bit sad, but in all it was a powerful movie with great animation.
