Storyline

The hand of God fashions Adam out of the clay of Earth and places him on a small and empty planet. Each of Adam's actions - at first he can't stand up, then he barks like a dog, then he sleeps - requires God's intervention. After Adam discovers how small the planet is, how little there is to do, and God's unwillingness to let him leave the Earth, he is depressed, lonely and disconsolate. So God asks Adam's patience for a few minutes while He fashions a companion for Adam. Adam is delighted: he dons a bow tie, uses mouthwash, and finds a bouquet of flowers. Is God thinking what Adam is thinking? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Clever and cute
11 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Considering that the film is called ADAM, you can probably assume this animated short is supposed to be a strange retelling of the Creation story. However, instead of God, you have the hand of the animator dropping a simple claymation man onto a small newly formed planet. From there, the poor clay creature is mercilessly messed with by the nasty hand. In the end, in a sick twist, the hand realizes that Adam is lonely and creates a mate--you just have to see it to appreciate it.

This short has both a lovely sense of humor and is very creative. In light of this, it seems appropriate that it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short of 1993.
