Storyline

A touching lyrical film story about the fate of a dog losing its beloved master, about people's attitudes towards the "smaller brothers", which radiates souls like an X-ray, revealing baseness and petty meanness in some, and nobility, compassion and love in others. The film was nominated for an Oscar film award in 1979 as the best film in a foreign language. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

It's one of those films you only have to see once to have every frame instilled in your heart forever.
24 June 2002 | by katrindariaSee all my reviews

A man and a dog merge in heart and soul. You can feel it when the man falls for Bim and you realize how much Bim loves his owner as you let his pawsteps guide you trough a lifestory that could make Benji say: "Woof, I have not yet lived".

This story will touch your heart and invite you to see the world from a four legged point of view. I give it a 10 and I haven't even mentioned the cinematography which is fantastic!
