Hachi is one of those movies that didn’t get any press but it is one that shouldn’t be missed. It is based loosely on a true story of a rare kinship between a man and his dog. Their friendship stood the test of time and the limits of time also. A story of love, devotion, and what ultimately proved to be a one-of-a-kind relationship that we as humans all yearn for. I agree with Eric and suggest you have a box of kleenex with you – because it will tug at your heart and make you want to hug your dog and hold the ones you love even a little more closer.
