This isn't a drama ...
it's a beautiful love story.... it's a story of patience, understanding, forgiveness, a story of how far we will go to protect those we love, a story of perseverance against all odds, a story of failure, desperation and of hope and of redemption.
It also shows the power, the stunning musculature of the doberman, his loyalty, intelligence and determination.
I read recently that the Sensory Research Institute at Florida State University, who, with several colleagues, came up a jaw-dropping estimate that a dogs' sense of smell overpowers our own by a magnitude of 10,000 to 100,000 times as acute as ours. "If you make the analogy to vision, what you and I can see at a third of a mile, a dog could see more than 3,000 miles away and still see as well."
Really great movie - I had forgotten all about this when I ran across it recently.
