Hachi: A Dog’s Tale (2009)

This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“I’m a lot older than you but I tend to think that there’s an element of music that cannot be captured. Life cannot be captured. Human heart cannot be captured. The moment of creation itself is fleeting.” – Parker Wilson

Number of Times Seen – 1 (24 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – A college professor gets a new dog and the two of them quickly become very close and n some ways inseparable.

Bottom Line – Touching story that works quite well. Richard Gere does a nice job in the lead role and plays a believable Professor, but the real star of this film is the dog himself. The story has a very light atmosphere which helps make things more enjoyable and poignant as things progress. The way that this film shows the strong bond between canine and owner is so nice to see. The supporting characters also add much to the feel of the film and I especially loved seeing Joan Allen an Jason Alexander in this who both add so much to things. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – To age Hachi, in addition to using makeup to dull the colors of his coat, tiny weights were used to make his ears and tail droop. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
