Before this film was made I had already known of the real Hachiko, and the original Japanese film Hachiko Monogatari. I was happy to see an American version of this film, perhaps giving it a broader audience beyond Japan. This is a true, timeless account of the special relationship between human and dog. Having owned a dog, I have often wondered what breed of dog God might have had? There is certainly no animal quite like a dog. A dog is a companion, a family member, and a true friend for life. It is sad that some people do not treat dogs (in fact, all animals) with the kindness and compassion they deserve.
I had great expectations of this movie the thing is after the start of the movie it moves down hill the whole time I had a hard time finishing the movie, it is a clean movie and that is about the only good thing I can say about it
I first took interest in this movie after seeing the previews of the dog who waited every day at the trains station for his owner to return from work. This story is touching and heart warming. What makes this story truly special is that it is completely true. Watch this with tissues but know that it will leave you smiling.
