Hachi, will be introducing the famous true story of Hachiko to an international audience. It will hit theaters in Japan on August 8th.

Hachiko, the legendary Japanese akita, proves that there is nothing more loyal than mans best friend in this modern retelling of a cherished true story. It all begins when a college professor adopts an abandoned dog named Hachiko. The two form such a strong bond that Hachiko walks with the professor to the train station each morning and returns to the station each evening to walk the professor home again. The routine continues until one day the professor does not return to the train station. Hachiko, however, does not give up. He returns to the same train station at the same time, faithfully waiting for his owner to return. Hachiko does this for more than nine years, until his own death. This heartwarming tale that is already the stuff of legend in Japan is finally making its way to America by way of prominent director Lasse Hallström. With an equally capable cast, the experience of Hachikos unending loyalty is certain to stay with you. Hachikos story is one of love, unwavering devotion, and the resounding impact one dogs affection can make.


Starring: Richard Gere, Joan Allen, Sarah Roemer, Jason Alexander, Erick Avari.

cannot wait to see this movie ! just finished watching a segment on morning news here in Japan about this true story – they also interviewed Gere. He talked about how as humans during marriage we just so easily say “i do” to staying together through “better or worse” but yet toss our commitments away and divorce on a whim – he continued on about how any unbroken bond between 2 beings is quite profound. By the way : the opening date of 8/8 … 8=Hachi in Japanese language. (If crying now during CM commercials, cant imagine the tears in the theatre.) A wonderful lesson to be learned and imitated from this true story!
