Yes, that’s right, there is a short film titled “Thirsty” which streams on Hulu and the premise is that a mosquito falls in love with a man. You can watch the trailer below for a better idea of what the film is about:

Mosquito Falls in Love With a Man
Thirsty is a fascinating short film where a mosquito falls in love with a man. The film is told in the perspective of a lady mosquito, voiced by Maya Rudolph, who tastes the blood of a young man, played by Jay Ellis, and is hopelessly enamored with him as a result.

A Mosquito Falls in Love With a Man | Thirsty Review

After watching the short film, here are a few short thoughts that the film brings to mind.

  • This is an interesting explanation as to why some people get so many mosquito bites. Maybe the mosquito is in love.
  • The ending though – the ending! Soooo unexpected.
  • It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all – Alfred Lord Tennyson
  • Really disappointed that it wasn’t actually a series but just a movie short. Why does Hulu have it listed as episode 1 when there will NEVER be an episode 2??? *insert tantrum*
  • Maya Rudolph voiced the insect out of that mosquito. She really committed to the character.
  • Why is Michelle Buteau always the side character? Someone give this woman a main role, please. Unless she only wants side roles…
  • Genuinely wanted a longer version of this. I haven’t seen anything this outside of the box in a while.
  • The Bee Movie? I don’t remember how it went. Did the bee fall in love with the human? This is why I write movie reviews. I barely remember the details. The point is that this movie reminds me of Bee Movie.
  • Maybe I liked this film more because I was under the impression that it was a pilot rather than the whole show…
  • Love, loss, jealousy, intimacy, and shape-shifting all in 12 minutes. 

If you want to watch a film but only have 11 minutes and 54 seconds to spare, I would recommend this short comedy, drama, and romance. It is witty, creative, and an interesting perspective from which to view the world.

Good stuff.
