Film Summary

An astronaut’s shop is hit by an asteroid that lands him on a rock where it seems he’ll be trapped until the end of his days. But, luckily, an alien ends up landing on the same rock and, seemingly with knowledge of human life, makes the rock hospitable for him. By doing so, he shares the foods he was cultivating in his ship and so begins them falling in love, with it all beginning with her blushing.

Review/ Commentary

It Reminds You Feelings Sometimes Don’t Need Words

The reason why there isn’t a noted cast is due to no one speaking. Yet, without words, you understand body language, take the signs that they are growing to like each other, and it is all so innocent and cute that it makes for the perfect short. It’s like a quick dose of sugar to lighten your mood and ends just as you need it to. Mind you, are there questions you could ask? Yes. Since the alien girl being able to quickly make an environment the astronaut can breathe and not freeze to death in raises an eyebrow, alongside how she knew what he needed.

But, this isn’t meant to be a serious, fact check, sci-fi. It’s just a cute little romance.


What’s Considered For Our Final Rating

Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)

Blush is cute and seems like the perfect warmup to an epic romance or just a quick reminder of why people still like falling in love. For while the short is simple, that is the hook. It’s quick, easy to get into, and makes you swoon in a short amount of time.
