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.
Surprisingly poignant and heartfelt. The film manages to balance its endearing and heartbreaking moments well while excellently showing what love, loyalty, and friendship really means. Many will hug their dog a little tighter after seeing this.
Curtailing of the success of fellow "make-you-care-just-to-kick-your-hearts-arse" dog movie Marley and Me, this is a sacharrine, though successful enough adaptation of the real life tale of Hachiko. As much as this film succeeds in its endeavors of killing me emotionally, I knew what I was in for given the best (and my first introduction) of this tale was the Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark". It's shamelessly and overtly sentimental, and works better as a single episode or short story as opposed to a feature film. But it made me give a damn.
This was passing on TV and a friend of mine had already recommend this one, so I thought "why not? Let's check this shit out!" and yeah, I like it, it's a really touching story about a dog who goes every single day wait for his dead owner (to come from work) until the day he dies. There's not very much going around but it's enough to make you think about your life, it made me think that sometimes I should give more attention to my dog.
This is actually a remake of the 1987 movie Hachi-ko that is not very well-known like most of the 80's classics that gave birth to these great movies (some of them are not that great, but you know what I mean). Check this one out, but I would recommend you to watch the original first, I didn't watch it but don't judge me, this was passing on TV.
The film 'Hachi' is based on a true story about a devoted love, an unbreakable friendship and an unending loyalty that a dog had for his master.
College professor Parker Wilson (Richard Gere) finds an abandoned Akita puppy at the train station and decides to take it home hoping to find its owner. When no one claims the lost puppy, Parker decides to keep it and name it Hachi.
This is a really beautiful film. The score is simple and reflects the same mood of happiness that Parker and Hachi have whenever they are together playing or enjoying each other's company.
I really loved the film technique of switching to a dull colour/grey shade in order to show the audience…
It's as manipulative as the film's ingredients suggest. Not much of anything in this one.
How I love feel good movies,and with dogs, oh shit! It's wonderful to watch (Marley & Me sends his regards). Lasse Hallstrom is the master of feel good movies/ sweet movies/ melodramatic ones. But he's good in doing this, and it's very pleasant to watch it. Feel good movies is good to watch with every one else, and no one hates, I guess. My recipe for these movies are " The greatest Feel Good Recipe":
- Have one pleasant storytelling find the funny and sympathic guy or women and care about them. They're carismathic, beautiful, light hearted peoples, and open hearted guys. 'cause they're the perfect peoples in this bleak, harsh, and competitous world, they're and will ever be what we…
