Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog is a Japanese movie that will appeal to all ages, as long as reading subtitles isn't a problem. Though the film follows the format of a documentary, it's a scripted drama about a grumpy older man and his selfless guide dog learning to work together. There's no swearing or smoking, and only a few scenes where adults relax with beer. Also, the puppies are unbearably cute.
A grumpy old man frequently snaps at the people around him.
Characters sometimes discuss when and where a dog will "poop" and "pee" in Japanese with subtitles.
Devotion to duty is paramount for a guide dog, but it's just as important for Quill's blind master to follow the procedures for getting around with a canine partner. They function best as a team and are less efficient when one decides to do things things his own way.
Some Japanese brands are visible onscreen, including Suntory beer and All Nippon Airways.
