Storyline

Poor but happy, young Nello and his grandfather live alone, delivering milk as a livelihood, in the outskirts of Antwerp, a city in Flanders (the Flemish or Dutch-speaking part of modern-day Belgium). They discover a beaten dog (a Bouvier, a large sturdy dog native to Flanders) and adopt it and nurse it back to health, naming it Patrasche, the middle name of Nello's mother Mary, who died when Nello was very young. Nello's mother was a talented artist, and like his mother, he delights in drawing, and his friend Aloise is his model and greatest fan and supporter. Written by Martin Lewison <mlewison@utk.edu>

Refreshing and entertaining
14 September 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be extemely refreshing and entertaining. Each scene drew me more involved to the story. It was great to see the veteran actor Jack Warden even if it was a brief role. Jon Voight plays a stand out role. I thought the movie would be mainly about the dog (a beautiful Bouvier), but the story is more about the talented boy. Also, the score by composer Richard Friedman was very appropriate and pleasing to the
