The other day, the first trailer of the family drama "Palma" appeared on the network - the story of a real friendship between a man and a dog. Palma refers to the main actor in the film - a dog of the German Shepherd breed. Two of our actors took part in the film - Artur Ivanov, as well as Japanese actor Osamu Yamamoto. We will see this touching and heartbreaking story in June next year.
This film is a joint production of Russia and Japan. It is in Japan, as you know, that there was a curious case with a dog of the Akita-kun breed named Hachiko. Hachiko became famous throughout Japan in 1932 after the publication of a newspaper with a note about this faithful dog, who had been waiting for the return of his deceased master for more than 7 years. After that crowds rushed to the Shibuya railway station with the goal of seeing this dedicated dog. So Hachiko came, wanting to meet his master, until his death. The faithful dog was waiting for the professor to return for 9 years .
Our Palma is also not a made-up case. The script is based on real events that took place in 1974-1976 at Vnukovo airport. The dog
left at the Moscow airport for several years faithfully waited for the return of its owner, meeting every landing plane Il-18, on which he had once flown away.
