If you have a heart, you’re going to cry. That’s it. You’re going to cry your heart out watching this movie. More than during any other movie.

They don’t say dogs are men’s best friends for nothing. Their loyalty is something we have often admired and tried to immortalize. This movie is just that. The perfect ballad to a dog’s fierce loyalty to his owner.

There’s not much else to say.

Yes, watch this movie. It is well worth the time. But be prepared to cry and cry and cry. It’s impossible not to. But it’s not such a bad thing now, is it?
