Perhaps too intense for younger audiences, but at least you get to watch a cute dog run around for two hours.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

What sets A Dog's Way Home above the pack of most animal movies is that while the film is perfectly suitable for children, it's actually an adult movie...the emotional highs of the film have been designed more for grown-ups [than kids}.

It touches on ongoing problems in modern society such as homelessness and the postwar physical and psychological suffering of soldiers, and on the growing use of animal-based therapy.

So welcome, A Dog's Way Home. You're a competent, big hearted and occasionally quite charming film.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

While this type of fare is so old-fashioned it should be heritage-listed, it rarely fails to draw the full emotional involvement of any viewer predisposed to pooches.

There's not much variation on the old themes here. What's new is the film's definition of community and family.

February 26, 2019
A film like this is created to manipulate any empathetic human being to cry. If you love dogs, the lump in your throat is pretty much guaranteed, even if the film doesn't seem to really earn it.

A little subtlety would have worked wonders for A Dog's Way Home. Unfortunately, it is all bark and no bite.

The emotional manipulation is steered straight by the tension between human law and animal nature. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 22, 2019
A story that compassionately shows the story of a dog that loves unconditionally. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Love is the key message here. And it is conveyed beautifully.

If you like animals, go [see this film] with your children. [Full review in Spanish]
February 20, 2019
There is no great epiphany; just a series of tedious, repetitive depictions of Bella yearning for family.
February 19, 2019
There's no denying the film has its heart in the right place. Just don't expect anything way too profound and be prepared with the tissues at the end.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 17, 2019
It remains predictable yet effective. Predictable in its plot, effective in ways you wouldn't have thought.

Despite the cliches, the movie brings it home without may problems and is satisfying for the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]

January 28, 2019
An odd mix of warm family film, bleak drama and public service broadcast. (Even my pet-loving 7 year old, presumably its target audience, declared it "too sad".)
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Dog lovers will find this fetching.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

A decent, and very old-fashioned, family film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

In short, a screensaver of puppies with a message about overcoming and unconditional love. [Full review in Spanish]
