The movie good?:
Based on a true story always make a good film. Earlier, I am a bit worried and reluctant to see this film because of it’s title. As I don’t want ended up watching some talking dog and stupid joke in the screen, I do some research on the net and I found out it was based on a real life story. And I can tell you it’s not just a good movie. It is a must-see.
Tell me, is it worth watching?:
I’ve read a lots of good reviews about this movie. A lots of them said that they are cried throughout the end of the movie. So I expect that I too will cry but that didn’t happen. Even though I didn’t shed a tear but this movie really touched me. This movie, teaches us first of all about love, there is no power bigger than love, nothing compares to this strong feeling. I don’t want to give a spoiler here so please go watch this movie or buy the DVD or anything. If you already see the film I recommend you to see MY DOG SKIP (2000). This is one of my all time favorite. Also based on true story.
What is it about actually?, â€˜cos I donâ€™t want ended up sleeping!!:
Hachiko: A Dog’s Story is a 2009 American drama film based on the true story of the faithful canine, Akita Hachiko. It is a moving film about loyalty and the rare, invincible bonds that occasionally form almost instantaneously in the most unlikely places. This very special friend would accompany his master to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya station in Japan as a permanent reminder of his devotion and love.
IMDb gives 8.1/10
