I felt a bit uncomfortable to start with, it felt like a home movie or student film, but it eventually found its mark and delivered heart and soul in buckets. The cast assembled are, aging, imperfect but ultimately endearing as they fall through lives that echo reality unlike the superficial garb spewed out of Hollywood everyday.
A lot of color and texture in this film giving it a rich feel that is further enhanced by a tasteful blend of folk and contemporary music. The intangible, loving relationship humans can have with dogs is wonderfully explored here. Whilst the human relationships in the film are pitted with conflicts and upheavals, Raffi the blue healer cross is always a faithful companion to who ever needs him. A great tribute to the unconditional love measured out by dogs and illustrates how they can shape and influence human lives.
See this film, it does make mistakes and feels a little off key at times but the bigger picture is a very charming one that will stay with you. 8/10
