Another day, another dog
18 April 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Dogs can be mens best friend (or kids in that case). I don't know if or on what this is based on, but the movie will wake feelings in you (especially towards the end), if your heart is not made of stone of course. Being a friend of animals helps enjoy this too of course. You do wonder if certain things had to happen in the movie, but drama has to be there doesn't it? (that's a rhetoric question).

The dog is more than lovely and the kid actors are really good. It's a nice flowing drama, that is told with efficiency (even if it could've been a bit shorter). The movie is nice all the way through, which doesn't take away any of the "harder" things you have to go through while watching
