Thread: Hachi: A dog's tale

    Smile Hachi: A dog's tale

    I have just watched this movie about Hachi the Akita.
    Based on a real story from Japan. Any of you seen it or know the story?
    Such a sweet movie. Two tumbs up!

    Yep, saw it last week. I'm a sucker for movies like that. 'My Dog Skip' is still my all time fav., although you have to admire the loyalty of Hachi.
    Life's perceived journey in this PMR is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "holy **** what a VR ride!"

    I fully intend to see this movie (I've been to the statue of Hachiko in Shibuya), but I'm a little annoyed that the producers Americanized the story, as I'm sure something will have been lost in the translation. Perhaps they felt the audience wouldn't be able to relate to early 20th century Japan, especially the connotations of loyalty to the Emperor the story held for many Japanese people. But the themes of the bond between human and dog--and the desire to be loved beyond death--are universally understood.

    That's the prettiest Akita I've ever seen! I need you to come rake my Husky, lol, you're doing wonderfully keeping up with her undercoat!

    I can't do animal movies, can't take the chance of something sad. It's weird, I've dealt w/ death quite a bit through work, yet Marley & Me drove me into a deep hole of depression..go figure!
