Movie Reviews:

  • NancyW9: This movie is wonderfully written, it’s one of my favourite films and I cry each time. Based on a true story of devotion the dog keeps going back to the train station to meet his owner who had a heart attack and died so is obviously he is not coming back, he becomes the train station mascot and people raise funds to help look after the welfare of the dog. it’s lovely but you will need plenty of soft tissues to wipe away the tears.It’s a classic.
