Movie Review: Hachiko

I love dogs! I have a soft spot for doggies, it doesn't even matter what they look like or where they come from. I'm one of those people who has a tendency to pick up stray dogs from the street (almost did so once, if only I wasn't on my way to school then). So when I heard about a movie about a dog, the appeal was too great for me to resist: I had to see it!

Hachiko is a true story about a dog who accompanies his master to the train station everyday and returns every afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly, his master passed away one day and never returned to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot everyday for years waiting for his beloved master to come home.

Altogether now: AWWWWW.... :( :( :(

Seriously, the synopsis is just as good as the film itself. It's so terribly heartbreaking but heartwarming as well. This is one of those movies you'd be glad you saw. It's simple but truly inspirational. It's such a nice break from all those conflict-ridden hardcore flicks. This one's simple and light which makes it plain beautiful.

PK rating: 9/10
