An amazing and uplifting film
I genuinely enjoyed this film. I saw it today along with the other nominated animated shorts. I thought this film stood apart from the others, even from Paperman. The other films are indeed all excellent, including the honourable mentions. Adam and Dog, though, captures the essence of engaging animated story-telling. The film's realistic and stylized depiction of the dog and its behaviour were both spot-on and very charming. However, the film's evocative aesthetics, and rich, painterly illustrations really drew me in. I was transported. It's unlike any animated film I'd seen before. Realistically, I don't think the film will beat the Paperman juggernaut, which is marching smartly to the Oscar podium. But it's my favourite and I hope Academy voters will appreciate this film's sublime sensibilities, enough to snatch the statuette. (I don't wish to disparage Paperman in any way. It is a stunning and fresh work, and worthy of the highest accolades.)
