Because fragile masculinity and stuff.
Scenes where men loudly crying are played for "jokes" (a lá Adam Sandler) will not…
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.
I cried like a silly boy. My pillow was soaking wet, and I really miss my dog, even tho she bites me when I pet her.
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.
I WAS LITERALLY CRYING FROM THE VERY FIRST MOMENT I SAW HACHI UNTIL THE END OF THE MOVIE. NEVERMIND THE PMS IM GOING THROUGH. THIS IS THE REAL SHIT REAL TEARS PARE LEGIT YUNG SAKIT SA PUSO DI KO NA ALAM/5
One of the saddest films I have ever seen in quite some time. Also, the fact that's it's a true story makes it even more emotional and remarkable. What did us humans do to deserve dogs?
DOGS ARE TOO GOOD FOR US
Seems too emotionally manipulative for my liking. Really just designed to make you cry. But they piled it on too much that it turned me off.
Also, Seymour did it better...
(SPOILER IN LINK)
As a dog lover, I refuse to watch this movie.
DONT WATCH THIS MOVIE UNLESS YOU LIKE WATCHING CHILDREN CRYING AND OLD PEOPLE FALLING
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Heartbreaking. Hachi (2009) is not your ordinary sob-story movie, made for money. It's actually really good. If there were animal Oscars, each dog that played Hachi would get one. All the acting was amazing and the score really affected your emotions while watching it. Definitely a movie to watch before you die.
