One of the hidden treasures that I discovered thru a friend. If you love drama and a dog lover, this is for you. Rarely do I get teary eyed in films (admittedly, almost with Toy Story III and Cars), but this gem really got me. Richard Gere is Professor Parker Wilson who adopts Hachi. His reluctant wife is Cate played by the talented Joan Allen. Jason Alexander is the friend of Prof. Wilson. You never though an Akita can act so splendidly. One of the best dramatic films I have luckily witnessed. If you haven't seen a film about loyalty, then this is highly recommended. Based on real events in Japan.

The professor and Hachi soon form a strong bond with Hachi refusing to sit at home while his master is at work so he waits for him at the train station, even in freezing weather as Gere commutes to the city for work every day. One day the professor unexpe...
