The thing is that i don't have an internet conection at my shcool and I really would likje to do this activity.Thanks for your answer and continue the good work.
The movie is great and so emotional! I still cry every time I see it. ? The movie is, however, not a documentary so Hollywood have probably made some small changes to the story and not pictured the persons exactly right. I agree, Hachi is the perfect example of the pure heart and love that dogs have towards humans and their owners.
Wow, I also have a birthday this month and will be 64. I never knew about this movie or the story. I got up early this morning about 5am, and only caught the last half hour after the master had already died, and was intrequed and saddened by it. I want to see it from the beginning so I check our TV listing and see that it will be showing again on next Sunday evening the 4/15. Lord willing I will be watching it. We lost our dog Rambo a couple of years ago, he died 10 years to the day he was born in. I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs.
Really a cried a lot. This movie reminds me my pet pinky who is no more. It makes me feel like dogs are the most faithful towards their loved ones. He is been a best companion for the professor. I wanna make pet like this. ? . Thanks for the article though. It explains the true story of hachi !!!
A great story about a loyal, fathful dog. I watched the movie with Richard Gere and loved it and yes I cried but it reminded me of my Star. Star a black lab, born in 2005 and came to live with me in 2009. Belonged to my neighbor but always wanted to be with me. Given to me in May 2009. Past away in 2013 from cancer and I still talk to her every day. I still put flowers on her grave at least once a month.
I just watched the movie an it stole my heart , i cried! I did some research an read the story an seen some pictures an again it broke my heart. This story will always be with me, rest in peace faithfull one?
This movie reminds me of white calf we had. he was supposed to go some another place but he had always returned in the midnight several times. finally we again kept him. he was like whitest thing. I liked that innocent calf he even leaved his mother(cow) to stay with us. it was the famous story in neighbourhood 15 yrs ago.
Thank you so much for the detail information on Hachiko. I visited this place on Oct 17, 2017. The story of Akita dog, the movies, the photographs makes one aware the intensity of faithfulness and loyalty!
Its a very special heart warming story of a dog. Its one of those kind of movies which will make you fall in love with a dog and make you cry even thinking about the poor Hachi. That sort of impact is left after watching the movie and learning the story of Hachi. This is an all time favourite dog movie for me..

Parents need to know that Hachi: A Dog's Tale is the story of great love and respect between a college professor and the puppy he rescues on a snowy night. It's a very gentle film that quickly engages the audience as it introduces a heroic dog, a man with a loving heart, and an idyllic setting. That engagement intensifies emotions, which later carry the story through the years to its bittersweet conclusion. The movie is based the story of a dog who lived in Japan in the 1930s; a statue of the real Hachi remains in the Shibuya train station there. Spoiler alert: A major character dies, which is heartbreaking and likely to upset most kids and parents. Though the film has a \"G\" rating, it's best for kids who are comfortable with very sad events -- including death -- and the grief that accompanies those events.
Like a Zen meditation, this movie has a calm pace that soothes viewers. That is, until tragedy occurs and Hachi's true colors shine through. The story of the real Hachi in 1930s Japan has been relocated by director Lasse Hallstrom to the United States in the 21st century. That keeps the story relatable for modern, English-speaking audiences. Long recognized for his ability to bring emotion and conviction to his films, Hallstrom truly captures this dog's-eye view of life. The leisurely pace and the gracefully portrayed passage of time and the dog's maturation combine with the beautiful settings and natural performances to make this a memorable film. However, be prepared to shed a tear and perhaps deal with younger audience members' sensibilities.
Swedish director Lasse Hallstrom is the perfect choice to be at the helm of this immensely appealing tale of the extraordinary devotion of a dog to his beloved human companion. The screenplay by Stephen P. Lindsey is based on a 1987 movie that recreated one of the most loved stories in Japanese history.
Only few films have made me cry, but not as many times as this one , it is a really captivating story and just to know it was a real one amazes me even more. You may never find a best friend but a dog will never disappoint you nor abandon you, and this movie just proves that.Apart from being a great story, I found the camera-work to be really good, and the scenography in some parts of the film does not get left behind.I also found the acting fitting to what it was being presented,it was in no way overdone nor was it lacking anything, it was just normal and good acting.I would recommend this film to everyone because it is meant for all audiences, but I can't guarantee if it will make you cry or at least feel any emotion. Most of you probably will at least feel something, though (mostly if you're fond of pets or animals in general).Don't miss the chance to watch this.
While humans are weird on these things, dogs are companions for life. Dogs show eternal loyalty for the simplest things. Giving them food and water is enough for them to stay loyal forever, but if that includes love and attention that loyalty is taken to another degree. It is true that dogs CAN and DO chose their own masters and they are loyal to one person. It seems that, for them, life has no meaning if it's not with their first owner.This film is very, very moving and sad, like no other I've ever seen. It tells the (real) story of Hachi, the dog that waited 10 long years for his owner after his death. Hachi kept waiting for him for the rest of his life and only didn't wait more because he died. Besides that hard reality, that dog was a victim of violence, went through a lot of pain, sorrow and even illness. It's already very depressing to imagine what the real Hachi went through and seeing what we see in this movie is so heartbreaking. It breaks my heart how much he waits for a master that won't be back anymore, the cruelty of humans towards innocent animals, the bad condition and fragile health he is after years.The movie itself is far from being great, let alone a masterpiece. But it's unquestionably a valuable lesson about the loyalty of dogs in the highest sense and it shows that dog is definitely man's best friend, a companion for life in the good and bad moments, everything. There are many hateful human characters and this movie is so depressing and painful that I can't even watch it anymore and I couldn't help but cry hard. Having that said, it's impossible not to love Hachi and our hearts melt over him.This movie had an American remake with Richard Gere but it's very different. The original is a far more realistic approach to the real story, as it takes place in Japan in the 1920's/1930's - which is the place and time when this story really happened.
Dog movies are a dime a dozen, and you can probably name a few out of the USA or Japan. There are many fictional ones that some might believe did exist (not the breed of course), but here's a story of one which really did, and in its lifetime earned the admiration of people around, enough to build a statue of it too! The Hachiko Exit of Tokyo's subway Shibuya Station stands a Hachiko the dog statue, in remembrance of its unwavering loyalty to its master.Hachiko is an Akita dog born in Odate, Akita Prefecture, and this is ample opportunity for the filmmakers to insert as many cutesy shots of puppies as possible, with their natural playfulness and inquisitive nature earning plenty of \"awwws\" from the audience. The birth of Hachiko and its siblings is probably one of the best I've seen - or make that the only one I've seen to date, with an actual birth sequence being captured on film - I didn't know they come out that small!But Hachiko's life seemed destined for hardship from the start. And this somewhat serves as a warning to those in the audience with an inkling of getting themselves a puppy after watching the show. As with any pet, it comes with commitment - you commit to taking care of it, and it will more than often do the same for you too, especially when it's a dog (they aren't called Man's Best Friend) for nothing. In the beginning, a young girl promises to care for the Hachiko, but as we all learn soon enough, this is but an empty promise as she \"abandons\" it even before it set foot into the home, and given that nobody in the household is keen on keeping it, the responsibility laid with the head of the h
