March Film: Hachiko
( Director: Seijiro Kamiyama 1987 107min. Rating:PG Cast: Tatsuya Nakadai, Kaoru Yachigusa)

A true story of the best dog on the planet – Very moving!
A film based on one of the most treasured and heart-warming true stories ever told behind the Hachiko statue loved by Tokyoites, that stands watch outside Shibuya station.

A teaching assistant receives a brave and devoted puppy. Named “Hachiko”, she meets her master on the way home from work at Tokyo's Shibuya station every day. When Hachiko's master becomes sick and does not return home one day, Hachiko faithfully waits through rain or shine for her kind master.

This 1987 Japanese film was remade in Hollywood starring Richard Gere in 2009.
