A drama based on the true story of a college professor's bond with the abandoned dog he takes into his home.
Although it suffers from being overly sentimental & comes off as emotionally manipulative on few occasions, Hachi: A Dog's Tale still qualifies as an affectionately crafted tearjerker that has a lot of warmth, cuteness & heart but purely from a story perspective, all it tries to do is to force its viewers to fall in love with its premise by using their sensitivity for a cute dog as its strength & eventually succeeds.
Based on a true story of the now legendary Japanese dog named Hachikō & his well-known loyalty to his master, Hachi: A Dog's Tale is the Americanised version of the same story & concerns an abandoned dog who is found at a train station by a local professor; who takes him home…
This is the true incident which provoked me to experience this beautiful, true tale of love, again.
This past Sunday afternoon was the usual. It was bright, sunny and cheery. I satiated myself with the sumptuous lunch that Mother had prepared despite being a bit unwell. It was as always divine and extremely satisfying. I was totally stuffed and once I had finished my ravishing meal, I started to feel drowsy. I had planned to watch David Lynch's Inland Empire and with a determination not to fall asleep; I lethargically climbed up the staircase and reached my AV room. I locked the door and started to make arrangements. Once I had switched off all the lights and had set everything…
Forced to re-watch the film because I didn’t have control of the remote, I actually rather enjoyed this sentimental and manipulative weepy a second time around. Maybe I’m becoming a big softy in my old age but it’s actually quite a sweet story and it’s hard not to fall in love with the dog.
This is one of those cute dog doing cute things type movie where not much else happens. They are the sort of films that have ridiculously high IMDb scores as any rational opinions about the film goes out of the window because there is a big fluffy dog on screen. Even being the heartless bastard that I am it is hard not to warm to such an adorable dog yet there does become a point where you start to look for some semblance of a story.
This is a well produced film, basically an American (well Japanese) version of Greyfriars Bobby, about a sweet dog and his bond with its owner but beyond a couple of moments that is all…
Este remake de la película de 1987 del mismo nombre (la original no la he visto) es un film conmovedor e impactante que cuenta una historia real que es increible que lo sea. Para mí el máximo ejemplo de que el perro es el mejor amigo del hombre en el cine. La fotografía está bien, la música es encantadora, el timing es bastante bueno pero te llega a abrumar en alguna partes en las que pasa el tiempo demasiado rápido y te hace querer que pase más despacio, las actuaciones cumplen y la historia llega. Nada más se le puede pedir. Una experiencia muy gratificante y perfecta para cualquiera que le gusten los animales o las historias sobre lealtad y amistad.
There is a reason why they say Dog is Man's best friend, And if you don't believe in this saying then watch this film.
Even a stone would shed a tear if it watched this.
Dog lovers would cry a bucket.
I did. I love you Hachi.
Let's be honest. While Netflix-surfing I came across this gem while looking under my top favorite actor Richard Gere. I was amazed at how cute this movie is. Heartwarming, touching and fantastically portrayed.
In my heart.
I was not crying. It was dust in my eye, I swear.
i am so sad, so very, very sad
I sobbed like a baby during this movie. Enough said.
This movie about Richard Gere and this dog made me cry like a baby. I saw it a while back after an uncle from Mexico recommended it. A cute dog movie? Sure. Why not. I expected it to be a tear jerker but one where I'm curled up in a ball by the end and rocking back and forth? Yeah. My mom who barely cries at movies, let alone dog movies, cried at the end of this one. Overall, I recommend this for the whole family. And then you can all go to group therapy to talk about those sad feelings that will happen.
No, this is not the sort of film I would usually choose to see. But my son was into dog literature (books about dogs, not by dogs) and wanted to see this, so we had a family trip. It looked and felt like a TV movie: nice middle class Americans living in a nice big house in a nice quiet American town which is full of other nice American people – but American TV movies usually have a big event that throws everything into melodrama, but nothing really happens in this film. Richard Gere finds a puppy at the station: there is the promise of a certain drama when his wife wants to get rid of it, but then she…
I will never cease to be overcome by just how amazing dogs are, certainly much more than humans.
To be clear, this is not a good movie. The acting is Hallmark channel quality at best; the music is cloying and manipulative; the story is sloppy and often focuses on the least interesting bits of the narrative. Even more damning, however, is the fact that this is yet another Hollywood film adaptation of foreign lore that is sterilized for American tastes and sensibilities, with all life being drained from it in the process.
But to be fair, it is a movie about dogs being dogs, so I can't really say I completely dislike it. Anyone who is even the slightest bit…
Eine bewegende (wahre) Geschichte - über die Loyalität, die dir nur ein Hund entgegen bringt.
Ich kann die Filme, die mich zu Tränen gerührt haben, an einer Hand abzählen und dieser gehört eindeutig dazu. Bewegendes Drama das nicht nur jedem Tierfreund ans Herz gehen wird.
