Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

Oh geez - you're right - that's going to be a real tearjerker. Great cast - Richard Gere, Joan Allen & Jason Alexander. This is the first info. I've seen on this movie - thanks for posting!

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

You are welcome, I remember this story from reading it on the paper somewhere, they have a statue of the dog at that train station. It is so sad.

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

Geez, I didn't even have the sound turned on (at work), and I said, "nope...this is one for the at-home-viewing" - lol. Going to be sad but worth it.

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

I already have it but I've had no time to see it yet.

I want to see it because it is a dog movie, and I like to see them all but I'd have prefered they keep the story more original, ok... less americanized and more Japan. I'm not a fan of Richard Geere either.

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

I love this story. One of my fave's.

This had better not harm the Akita's though. Not to be the the doomer. Last I looked they were the #1 dog to be rehomed. They need someone that can train doggies, not a first time owner.

I hope there is something to this fact with the movie.

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

That is an amazing story. What an incredible dog - 10 years he went back to that station. I thought it was wonderful that, to this day, they still honor him each year. Can't wait to see the movie. Will be bringing a BOX of kleenex!

There's another story about a dog in Europe who did the same thing - visiting his owner's grave. I don't remember the details, but the same kind of loyalty.

Re: Hachiko: A Dog's Tale

Yes, there are a lot of discussions already on the web about people running to buy Akitas after they see this movie, just like it happened with the Dalmation movie. Hopefully it will not be the case. Akitas are NOT easy dogs.
