Seen once and not forgotten
20 February 2005 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

We saw this movie once on Hong Kong Television when we lived there until the year 2000 and remember it as a true tear jerker but in a positive sense.

It stuck in our memories for all those years which must mean something; and it may therefore mean a great deal to people who are not yet to emotionally in such deep freeze that the story of Hachiko can no longer warm their hearts.

If I recall correctly the original was in Japanese but it had English subtitles.

In the last four years we have tried to buy a copy but cannot find any.

Thankful for any pointers in that direction
