Format: DVD
A great touching movie based on a true story worth viewing for the whole family! Being a fan of Richard Gere, I thought I would give it a try and I'm certainly glad I did. This is most definitely a movie worth purchasing. Talented cast with an impressive storyline that can't leave you indifferent. A must see!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 8 2011
Format: Blu-ray
Video: Sony's treatment on this blu ray disc is excellent, with 1.85:1 widescreen. The picture was clean, free of debris, and boasts excellent flesh tones. The details are there with the every different colour of fur on Hachi. (4/5)

Audio: Jan A.P. Kaczmarek's music, especially the piano solo, is simply beautiful, and blends in with the movie. It never intrudes into the picture. Dialogue was clear. (4.5/5)

But the real stars of this movie are firstly, the story itself, and how well director Lasse Hallstrom's tender touch brought it to the screen, and also the Akita dog Hachi, played by three different animals, named Chico, Layla and Forrest. Richard Gere was fantastic in this movie. He bonded really well with the dog and it never felt like watching an actor at all. It genuinely seemed to be a movie with his own dog.

This is a remake of an old 1987 Japanese film "Hachiko Monogatari", based on a true story. In 1932, a dog won the hearts of the people of Japan after a newspaper article described his loyalty to his owner. Every afternoon, Hachiko would wait at the train station for Dr. Ueno. After the man died suddenly in 1925, the animal returned to the station every day to wait for him, until his own death in 1935. A bronze statue was placed at Shibuya Station to honor this extraordinary canine, and a festival is held there every April.

During the movie, it was made very clear that Hachi did not play "fetch". But one morning when Gere wanted to walk to the train station to go to work, Hachi somehow felt something omnimous that was going to happen to his master, and did not want Gere to go. Then, Hachi would bring the ball to the train station and caught Gere before he boarded the train.

Format: DVD
This is a fabulous movie and actually based on a true story. Only requirement for watching it is "must love dogs". It is an incredible story of loyalty and the unbelievable love a dog has for his master. It is a tear jerker but a very very heartwarming story and such a lovely movie to find in all the violent types of movies out there. I loved it and would recommend it highly.
