I has a good story, and certainly a watch for doglovers as myself.
The story is quite easy, you see the bondig between an ordinarii man and a dog (which isn't albino as the movie says its in fact a dogbreed: Berger Blanc Suisse). On that note the story is somewhat shallow, there isn't much character development and no background stories at all. But the reason why I loved this story is because of Shiro, the dog!
The acting was favorable expecially the dogs haha. The human actors did all a good job and I loved the ending because that brought them all together.
The music did fit everyscene, some uplifting music is heard but also some sad music.
I would rewatch this movie, because it is easy to watch, involves dog and you don't exactly have to follow this movie every minute. I could easily put this on while doing homework or doing other little activities.
Watch this if you love dogs/animals an easy story with some action.
Skip this if you don't like dogs/animals and want a deep story with good developped characters.
As a film it was good, at first I thought the film would involve lots of action and stuff but you can say it was kind of near to those pet films where the protagonist and his pet have a great owner-pet relation. This really puts you in a good mood while watching the film.
The actors were fine. Toda Erika wasn't annoying as expected from watching other works. So no much complaints in this regards.
The film's soundtrack was nice, it fits nicely and I really loved the ending song by Shikuramen (シクラメン).
Few things made me smile and it was their reference to a number of things from real life that I think were kind of unnecessary and could have been just passed through normally without making them stand out. One was referring to the computerised voice used by a wanted suspect to "Sorami Miku" (Hatsune Miku) and another was the awaited lecture by "Steve Jubs". Makes you feel those were all made on purpose to add some humour to the film.
The film wasn't a waste of time. Enjoyed the whole thing and didn't feel slightly bored. If you're looking for a little heart warming story with a little bit of seriousness from the crime genre then this one is a good choice.
