Aroview: Transposed to an American setting, Lasse Hallstrom adapts this timeless Japanese tale of a loyal dog and the irrepressible bond shared with his master, here played by Richard Gere.
Their quietly observed friendship survives grief-stricken family circumstances and swells to a beautifully moving finale, with dir. Hallstrom’s handling of the material measured enough to not let the sentimentality overwhelm what is an otherwise dignified, simply told tale.
