The story of how dog became man's best friend!
6 February 2013 | by HellmantSee all my reviews

'ADAM AND DOG': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

The story of how dog became man's best friend! It's a 2012 animated short film that was nominated for a 2013 Academy Award. It's about 16 minutes long and focuses on the first man, Adam, befriending the first dog (in the Garden of Eden). Then woman, Eve, gets in the way of their friendship but their unbreakable love survives the test (for eternity). It was written and directed by Minkyu Lee and is close to featuring animated nudity (but nothing in detail). Touching if you're a dog lover (or just an animal one). Sloppy animation but it has character. A decent animated short film.
