The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro’s entire career has been built on a profound empathy for the monsters and the outsiders, sometimes metaphorically, quite often literally, and that goes to a logical extreme in The Shape of Water. Imagine Creature from the Black Lagoon played out as a Beauty and the Beast-style romance, now add in a large portion of mermaid, both specific and related, mythology and you’ll con... read more

“If I spoke about it - if I did - what would I tell you? I wonder. Would I tell you about the time? It happened a long time ago, it seems. In the last days of a fair prince's reign. Or would I tell you about the place? A small city near the coast, but far from everything else. Or, I don't know... Would I tell you about her? The princess without voice. Or perhaps I would just warn you, about th... read more

A fun fairy tale. Only big issue I had with it was her quickness to embrace the monster for apparently no reason when first learning of it after it attacked someone. Also, this could have been a PG or PG-13 film with some editing and it might have fit better with younger kids who might not care that she'd have no motivation to become friends with the monster. Anyhow, worth it. 7/10

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER - an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

"12.11. Parasta, mitä The Shape of Waterista voi sanoa, on se, että elokuva - ja etenkin sen monsteri - on nätti ja mielenkiintoinen ajankuvaus. Muuten elokuva on niin käsittämättömän typerä. Puhevammaisen hahmon kuvaus voisi olla maininnan arvoinen seikka elokuvassa, ellei - spoiler alert - Hawkinsille oltaisi suotu omaa musikaaliosuutta elokuvassa. Lapsellisen stereotyyppisiksi arkkityypeiksi kirjoitetut hahmot ovat raikkaita kuin nakkimehu."
