Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog

Well hello there, where did you come from? Music Box Films has posted a trailer on Apple for a Japanese film called Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog, which I've never heard of before, but instantly became a must watch. It's actually a drama (not a doc), based on a true story, about the life of a guide dog trained in Japan, a beautiful Labrador Retriever named Quill. While this trailer is undeniably adorable in every way, it gets really good when they introduce Watanabe, an elderly blind man who won't accept the dog at first. Seems like there is a story of friendship and trust that is the real story here, and it looks wonderful. I want to see it!

Watch the official US trailer for Sai Yoichi's Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog, in high def from Apple:

Based on a true story, Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog, directed by Sai Y├┤ichi (Doing Time, Art of Revenge, Kamui), is the sweet tale of a yellow Labrador Retriever guide dog for the blind named Quill. We follow Quill from the litter to his selection as a guide dog shortly after his first birthday. After training at a school for guide dogs, Quill is paired with a blind man named Watanabe who at first is reluctant to rely on him. But Quill's great patience, gentleness and skill eventually win him over and they become inseparable friends. This was actually released in Japan way back in 2004 under the name Quill, but specialty distributor Music Box Films is finally bringing Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog to US theaters starting on May 18th. Curious?

This looks wonderful, but something tells me it's going to get a half-assed American remake in the near future.

Reminds me of the American movie "Hachi" (based on the famous Japanese true story) which was actually quite awesome.
