From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes THE SHAPE OF WATER, an otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of 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. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
The Shape Of Water is pure magic, poetry in motion with such an entrancing music that works as the perfect companion to the story.
Visually the movie is stunning, there’s an easy flow in the storytelling that keeps you enthralled the whole time and is full of wonderful and spellbinding moments with great acting.
An amazing work from Guillermo del Toro, a movie I can’t recommend enough and that will definitely be part of my Movie Collection.
Rating: 5 of 5.
