Synopsis Guillermo del Toro’s new film is a ravishing 60s-set romance, sweet, sad and sexy.The film starts in a wavering green underwater world, with a woman floating in what looks like a drowned Atlantis. The image is otherworldly, magical, and Alexandre Desplat's score is wistful and bittersweet.[Hawkins] is truly radiant in her role, conveying wellsprings of feeling without a line of dialogue, making sign language look like second nature... -- Grade: BTHE SHAPE OF WATER is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful.[It's] poignant, tender, funny, romantic, and flat-out breathtaking in its shoot-the-moon ambition. -- Grade: A3.5 stars out of 4 -- Even as the film plunges into torment and tragedy, the core relationship between these two unlikely lovers holds us in thrall. Del Toro is a world-class film artist.A dark-edged fairy tale as lovingly steeped in vintage movie magic as it is in hypnotic water imagery, this captivating creature feature marries a portrait of morally corrupt early-1960s America with an outsider tale of love and friendship molded by a master storyteller.A ravishing, eccentric auteur’s imagining, spilling artistry, empathy and sensuality from every open pore, it also offers more straight-up movie for your money than just about any Hollywood studio offering this year.Like the director’s best works, THE SHAPE OF WATER blends lonely outcasts, chimerical beings, meticulous design, and mid-20th-century political strife.[A] wonder to behold. Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.Guillermo del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER is like a beautiful painting you keep visiting at your favorite museum, because it continues to reveal its brilliant magic in new and different ways.[A]n adult fairy tale that is at once deeply familiar and utterly original.[S]tylish and stupendously crafted....Hawkins is terrific in her silent role, using her expressive face to sell Elisa’s dive into love and the complications that arise.A mute cleaning lady (Sally Hawkins) working in a secret U.S. government lab in 1962 befriends an otherworldly, aquatic creature (Doug Jones) who's being held there against its will. In time, she and her friends decide to help it escape from captivity, even if it means risking the wrath of a ruthless G-man (Michael Shannon). Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer co-star. Directed by Guillermo del Toro (CRIMSON PEAK, PAN'S LABYRINTH).
