“Man's best friend receives a cinematic pat on the head in Buddy, the latest documentary by veteran Peru-born Dutch director Heddy Honigmann. Observing how six service dogs provide crucial daily help and companionship for their grateful owners, the ruminative, accessible affair proves as soothing to the viewer as the faithful pets are to their humans. Honigmann's productions generally earn their keep via domestic theatrical and small-screen exposure plus non-fiction festivals abroad, and the universal appeal of her engaging canine protagonists should ensure this one ends up among her more widely-distributed productions.

“Aided by the fluent, unobtrusive editing of the experienced Jessica de Koning, whose numerous credits include foreign-language film Oscar winner Character (1997), Honigmann moves back and forth between the six dogs over the course of 86 minutes, showing the animals in action and in repose. It's a simple recipe — a nice film about nice people and their lovely dogs — but one that pays regular dividends in terms of quietly accumulated insight and interludes of touching sweetness.” - The Hollywood Reporter
