Hachiko: A Dog's Story [2009]

Hachiko: A Dog's Story is a Drama | Family movie that was released in August 2009. An English film based from a true story of an Akita born dog in Japan of the unconditional love the dog had to the person. I guess, this account would be a rare case of a story of this like, since, having a statue as tribute to the dog is very extraordinary, especially for animals. It just showed how immense the bond between the person and the dog to those around them, and to those who found this storyline favorable.

What this film had failed is that the bond between the dog and the owner was so intense but their interaction with each other was minimal and nothing was uncommon. Maybe because the owner spend more time working and he had his family, or maybe it was just that the dog was born different. The film showed that the owner's happiness was remarkable when he was with Hachi, actually, he was often together with Hachi than with his wife, maybe because she's old or it's because she's allergic with the fur. The storyline was pretty simple, but Hachi's fondness ranked atop other dogs.

A storyline based from true events would gave a different affection on viewers even though the production would be low. Especially, when you can actually relate to the story. As for this film, I think you'll going to give your dog a good hug after the show. Well - although shameful - I got teary-eyed from this movie because I remembered our late dog. When I was a kid, he was about twice my size, most black in color and hairy, a crossbreed from a German Shepherd line. A very scary appearance for a dog, but he was very kind me, we even played almost everyday that's why I cried when that beloved pet of ours passed away.

This is a great film for animal friendship and welfare and is advisable to be watched with friends or family. Recommended to those affectionate with animals and pets, especially dogs. I'll have an 8/10 rating for the movie.
