Movie Review: Hachi - A Dog’s Tale

Dogs are man’s best friend and known for being loyal companions, but I’ve never believe that there is such a dog who spent almost a decade in a train station waiting for his master to arrive home.

Hachi – A Dog’s Tale, a drama based on the true story of a college professor who finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes the poor animal at their home and names it Hachi.

Loyalty, faithfulness, and devotion, these things best described Hachi.  As days passed by, Hachi and his master (Richard Gere) form an unexplainable and strong bond that each day when his master left for work; his dog would stand by at the door to watch him go. But when his masters arrive home, Hachi would go to the train station to meet him.After the professor dies while away from home, Hachi didn’t realize that his master was already gone, and so Hachi still go to the train station every single day to wait for his master’s arrival. After almost 10 years of waiting, the dog died.

The story of Hachi is very touching and moving. A simple act alone shows a great amount of loyalty and devotion to one’s master.  

Moral lesson of the story: A dog's love can never be measured by anything.  Make them feel that you care and love them and they'll bring it back to you 10,000 times more.
