Quirky film but a real inner human desire
29 May 2018 | by johnnghomeSee all my reviews

It may be a quirky film but it seems to show an inner human desire. This is a movie with a plot that is based on something really new and different; not like the millions of other movies out with pre-set money-spinning plot.

Imaging a gorgeous astronaut falling out of the sky who is visually so delightful as compared to the mundane looks of the people around in the Steppes. In a "finder's keeper" society, won't ithere be an urge to keep such a beautiful pet!
