Nicely done. Honest, heartfelt, sad.
I shed a few tears during the film. It touched me very much. It is not a feelgood movie. This one follows a faithful line, a life line if you will. That of the dog Buck. He meets many different people who walk a part of the way with him. In the end it is the wonderful Harrison Ford. Sometime before that, the at least equally wonderful Omar Sy.
It’s a story of life. Invented? Yes, perhaps. Is Buck a CGI dog? Most certainly so. Did that bother me? Not in the least. It’s a heartfelt adventure that I recommend without reservation.
