JOURNEY TO MT. FUJI is a thoroughly original and entertaining art film appealing to both family and adult audiences. With the cultural and social sensibilities of France and Japan combined and conveyed in the very American genre of sci-fi adventure movies, the film tells an engaging story about self-identify, family, and childhood through its daringly bold and innovative blending of poetic imageries, beautiful music, and strong performances from actors. Produced at the onset of the Fukushima nuclear tragedy, the film also acts as a commentary on the timely and timeless questions about the symbiotic relationships between humans and the environment.
