For the first time my acquaintance with this film took place in childhood. Buying a videotape of his daughter, to which depicts a boy with dog in which was not foretelling anything bad, the title of the movie "My dog Skip," mom, is hardly a thought about the impact on me on the formation of my psyche, thanks to this movie.

Watching the film only once, 13 years ago, I remember it in minute detail. Incredibly kind and a teaching of love film, full of moments when, without a box of handkerchiefs here is not exactly to do so how to cry there be enough. Believe me, maudlin moments in this film more than in "Hachiko". For this reason, not advise you to show this film to their children, especially if they you very sensitive.

In any case, this film is able to melt even the coldest heart.

40-ies of the last century, a small provincial town in States, which he lives a boy of Willie Morris, not like others. He shy, yeah and same "cotton grew up in a very one year and here he no" what respectively, gave occasion for ridicule to all the neighborhood bullies. The only one who understood it, was Dink Jenkins, who was much older than his little friend, played in the baseball reputed to be everyone's favorite. But taking him in army the boy is completely alone. And here at this note, the grown up Willie Morris, now writer, tells us about his childhood, which was full of different events.

Father, a war veteran who has seen a lot of bad, trying to protect his son from outside world, which a lot of things negative. The mother a more rational and realizes not could go on forever, buys son a dog — true a trusted friend who will help the boy become an adult and adapt life. And she has paid off, Skip became the faithful companion of the son, helping him in all. And then they shared adventure, fun and not really, but sometimes quite dramatic. Because human life is so changeable, often presents different surprises.

The process of growing up — very ambiguous and intense period in the life of any person. You learn many new things, trying to find something different and not lose yourself, choosing the wrong path. I think it is familiar to many people. And Willie is not exception. The filmmakers are very interested in telling us about the life of ordinary boys of his first steps track from boy to grown man. So very bright and vividly shows the life of the time, the eyes of all the same boy.

About many actors say it is not all they are well matched and played well. Just want to mention Frankie Muniza. Incredibly charming and at the same time talented child. The most dramatic moments of the film him it failed. Many children take for its immediate charm. Don't deny, Frankie this is not deprived, but it in same have talent. His eyes... they had a look and you just say: "Believe!"

Great movie, in mostly children, but and adults it will be useful to see, to remember your childhood, your dreams, friends, because maybe some life, too, was your dog Skip?

And you had a pet when you were just a baby?!

Who grew up with you, who was sad with you, experiencing all the difficulties of childhood and youth, with you had all your free time, did homework together, fell asleep and woke up to embrace it was your best friend, brother,... was that a Yes?

This film is about the same time, infinitely touching story that will make be moved even the most callous heart. Many will see themselves in this film, and remember his pet, which was the most loyal, who would never do not betray, do not lie, and his eyes were filled with purity and sincerity...

who cares what happens around when you have the support of all will be over, because you need someone, you learn the courage he not knowing from you have friends, but that you won't replace anyone, you're getting older along with him, and some situations make you stronger.

It is an indescribable experience, not forgotten... Just half an hour which bring to mind all my childhood
