Each week I'll post a new letter and all you have to do is nominate a film that you think…
Hachi: A Dog's Tale
A true story of faith, devotion and undying love.
A drama based on the true story of a college professor's bond with the abandoned dog he takes into his 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.
Damn It! I never imagined I would cry in a Richard Gere movie.
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…
Enough to make a grown man cry!
A must-watch film, especially for all dog lovers. Highly recommended for all families and people of all ages.
Be sure to take tissues!
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.
I cried. A lot.
O melhor amigo de todos, de fato.
Can you make a good movie about a dog without a healthy does of emotional manipulation? I haven't seen one. By the end I was crying so much, I didn't mind the insipid bookends.
Very sad movie . Really it touched Me !
Boring first half. (maybe life is).
Worth watching if you feel like crying.
OMG, SUCH A CUTE DOG!
And I was totally not crying. That was just a lot of rain in my face...
You just want to hug your dogs while this was playing. People who loved this film should check out the movie red dog which had me blubbering as well
Isto sim um filme de amor verdadeiro e leal,daqueles que um ''gajo'' acaba sempre por deixar uma lágrima cair...
My brain says 0/5, my heart says 5/5. This is a compromise.
Now, excuse me while I go hug my dog.
