Abner, a true 'tail' of hope and compassion
A beautiful tale of both courage and compassion, filled with heartwarming ingenuity, and with the director and actors having a knack for timing adds up to one of the top films of the decade. The star, however is clearly the dog, as his true talent shines throughout the film, as he prevails against the dastardly villains time and time again. All I could say from scene to scene was wow, as I was dazzled by the acting from each minute. The director also accurately portrays evil incarnate in the form of a local bully named something I forgot. I was taken aback that this film was not considered for awards such as an Oscar or golden globe, seeing as it clearly deserves it. One might only view the childish side of this film, but I believe that as the actors, both human and canine are viewed by a film critic one can see this is a film about the finer things in life.
