A great best friend story
- Hachi: A Dog's Tale review by Eugene+Debs
This is a true story about the relationship between a man and his best friend, his dog. Truly a remarkable and endearing story. With a good dose of funny, emotional, scary. Richard Gere is brilliant as ever and the dog that played Hatchi second to none. Even the hardest of people couldn't fail to be moved. I admit I sobbed.
