Il cane Fluke fin da cucciolo ha dei ricordi strani per un quadrupede: un incidente d'automobile, un matrimonio, un anello nuziale. Morta la barbona che lo ha raccolto, dopo che mamma e fratellini sono finiti al canile, viene accettato dal cane bastardo Rumbo, che lo fa adottare dal titolare di una demolizione di automobili. Cresciuto, Fluke morde Sylvester (un ambiguo individuo che gli ha pestato la coda al mercato mentre mendica cibo) e costui per vendicarsi lo cattura e lo consegna ad un vivisezionatore, ma dal laboratorio lo fa fuggire Rumbo che, salvatolo, muore dissanguato per una pallottola di Sylvester. Il ravvivarsi dei ricordi convince Fluke di essere Thomas Johnson, un individuo schiantatosi con l'automobile durante l'inseguimento di Jeff Newman. Pertanto si reca nella cittadina dove vivono la vedova, Carol, il figlioletto Brian e l'amico Jeff. Fluke, riuscito a farsi adottare da Carol e da Brian, morde Jeff e deve guardarsi dagli accalappiacani da lui chiamati. Poi penetrato nella sua ex fabbrica, rivive gli ultimi istanti della "sua vita precedente": la lite con Jeff a proposito di un nuovo modello di freno per automobili, l'inseguimento dell'automobile di Jeff, lo sbandamento nella scarpata boscosa per evitare l'impatto con un camion. Salito furtivamente sull'automobile di Jeff, lo assale facendolo uscire di strada. Ma lo shock gli rispolvera la memoria, e si rende conto che Jeff ha tentato invano di soccorrerlo dopo la scomparsa ed è dispiaciuto per la sua morte, pur essendo attratto da Carol. Ed è lui, ferito, a dirgli di soccorrere il figlio Brian, che per cercarlo si è messo a vagare nella neve. Trovatolo al cimitero e raggiunto da Carol, capisce che deve lasciare che la vita prosegua il suo corso e Jeff formi una nuova famiglia coi i suoi cari.

I saw this film 2 years ago, nothing has made me cry so much since homeward bound. This is a beautiful story as we watch a dog grow from puppy to adult (Fluke) all the time having disturbing dreams from his human past life which finally sends him looking for his human family. This film really knows how to hit your tear jerkers. An excellent film.

I watched this film years ago but it is one I never forgot and because of that I have bought both the book and the film. It's a real tear jerker..... and in some ways even better than the book. (which doesn't happen to often..)

I remember seeing this film when i was about fourteen years old and I remember crying my eyes out! it appears to be a children's film on the front cover, however the deeper it gets into the story, the sadder it becomes. It is the story of a dog whose spirit is a man tragically killed in a car accident, and he is searching for meaning. Absolutely beautiful film, 10/10!

Fluke is directed by Carlo Carlei who also co-adapts the screenplay with James Carrington from the novel written by James Herbert. It stars Matthew Modine, Eric Stoltz, Nancy Travis, Ron Perlman, Bill Cobbs, Jon Polito and Samuel L. Jackson. Music is scored by Carlo Siliotto and cinematography by Raffaele Mertes.

Workaholic Thomas Johnson is killed in an auto accident and is reincarnated as a dog. As he grows from pup to adult dog he starts to remembering things from his human life and sets about piecing together exactly who he was and what happened to him.

It was a box office flop, a hard sell anyway with its cross genre themes, but MGM didn't know how to market it. Was it an animal adventure for the kids? A family drama message movie? Or a metaphysical bit of dalliance? Truth is is that it is all three, an engagingly thoughtful movie that is flavoured by fantastical whimsy whilst also beating a poetic heart. There's humour in here, too, especially when Fluke teams up with the wise and shaggy Rumbo (Jackson). But predominantly picture is about emotional beats, sitting in that void between genuine warmth and tragedy. It's unashamedly sentimental, but that's a good thing, and it's not just confined to the animal aspects of the story, this is still a very real human drama. The messages within are handled with care, there's no beating us over the head here.

Director Carlei disappeared from Hollywood after the failure of Fluke, which is a shame since he crafts a great picture of strength. His dog POV camera work is smart in bringing us into Fluke's world, and many shots are gorgeously framed and filmed by director and photographer alike.

"Fluke" comes into being after Matthew Modine is killed in a car accident.That's giving nothing away of the plot of this happy,sad,wonderful,childrens,family film because that part happens almost at the beginning of the picture.Then we learn that Fluke remembers that he had a previous life as a human and finds the need to return from whence he came to find his human family but how the hell is he going to get there when he isn't quite sure where 'THERE' IS?? Somehow he manages to enlist the help of Rumbo and between them they start on their epic journey, avoiding the dog-catchers, the animal-experimenters until there is a great tragedy forcing Fluke to continue alone on his quest.

I watched this film on the television last christmas and i loved it. I thought it was a really nice story but sad at the same time. But after watching the film i decided i would like t buy it because i thought it was so good.
The film is about a man who dies in a tragic car accident and reincarnates into a dog named 'Fluke'. He realises who he is and goes on a journey to find his human family. On the way he meets another dog (voiced by Samuel L Jackson) who helps him on his journey.
This is a great film for children and adults. The only thing i don't like about the film is the ending, as i don't like films which don't wrap up, and in my opinion this one doesn't - but i'll leave it up to you to decide...

I originally saw this film after my mom and sister recommended it to me, knowing how much of an animal lover I am. I fell in love with this film when I first watched it (at about the age of 13) and then ventured into the library to read the book by James Herbert. If you watch the film, I also recommend reading the book too as they're very different from each other. Even though the film is American and set in America, the book is British and based in London.

Much of the plot has been changed to fit with the film, and I admit I still prefer, in some ways, the book. Of course with the nature of the story and some of the bits in the book they had to change it to fit to children as the book can be a little more mature in places.

The only criticism I had with the book was the ending; for me it finished too quickly. I think the film tries to tie up the loose ends a little more effectively, but it still hangs on a little. Not the best of endings.

I only ever saw this film in the shops once and so I decided to purchase it from here. If you're an animal lover, you'll love Fluke...
