A film by Sai Yoichi

Based on a true story, Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog is the sweet tale of a yellow Labrador Retriever guide dog for the blind named Quill.

We follow Quill from the litter to his selection as a guide dog shortly after his first birthday. After training at a school for guide dogs, Quill is paired with a blind man named Watanabe who at first is reluctant to rely on him. But Quill’s great patience, gentleness and skill eventually win him over and they become inseparable friends.

A wonderful film. I can’t recommend the movie highly enough. —Stephen Whitty, Newark Star Ledger

What sets this film above so many movies about animals is that it’s about a dog who is realistic in every aspect. —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

An absolute must-see for dog lovers of all ages. Family entertainment at its best! —Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal
