This beautifully crafted fantasy falls somewhere between del Toro's more personal Spanish-language films like Pan's Labyrinth and his American popcorn spectaculars.
Dennis Harvey. From the very first frame to the last, The Shape Of Water is a captivating and emotional experience. Matthew St. There is no love story out there quite like the one Guillermo del Toro has put together here.
Leigh Monson. Richard Propes. Simply beautifully enchanting and brutally mysterious, visually luscious and mesmerising, del Toro is a cinematic genius.
Zehra Phelan. It's the small, rather than the big, that impresses most here, and it proves a welcome return to the director's modest origins.

His passion for the art form is infectious. Not being able to do that, at least I can watch The Shape of Water over and over again.
It's a love story about a woman and a beast. But, the real love story is about the moviemaking. Del Toro's zeal for using all the moviemaker's tool are in full display.
Aldo G Super Reviewer. Mar 17, Peter B Super Reviewer. Dec 22, Del Toro's direction saves this film from be a terrible film but it's no a great film like many people says.
Fernando M Super Reviewer. Nov 26, With this movie, I have now watched all of Guillermo Del Toro's filmography.
I don't know if I've reviewed every single one of his movies that I've seen on Rotten Tomatoes, but I may end up posting the reviews on Letterboxd at some point or another.
Regardless, my fandom of Del Toro actually dates back to ish, when I was around 15 or 16 years old. I remember I had this Spanish teacher at school and one time she was talking about this movie, raving about it really, and that movie was El Espinazo Del Diablo or, as you gringos know it, The Devil's Backbone.
There was a Blockbuster Video that's how old I am, Blockbuster was still a thing and I regularly visited the store literally across the street from my school.
So, one of those times me and my aunt went to Blockbuster, I found The Devil's Backbone and we rented it. And, naturally, I loved the movie then and I still love the movie now.
As someone who is now 30, I have now been a fan of Guillermo Del Toro's work for half of my life and it's a fandom that I will carry until Del Toro decides to retire.
I think I would, quite easily, place him in my top five of favorite filmmakers of all time. Those aren't placed in any real particular order, but that's just how they came to mind to me.
The first two of those, however, Del Toro and Miike aren't on that list for their filmography per se. Don't get me wrong Del Toro's filmography is top-notch but, as an example, Mimic isn't great though I don't blame Del Toro for that as much as studio interference and Crimson Peak is only just good.
The reason I place him there has as much to do with his unique visual style, his fantastical settings, the creatures that inhabit his incredibly detailed and impressive worlds and the writing.
He's a man who clearly an auteur. She begins visiting him in secret, and the two form a close bond.
Robert Hoffstetler — a scientist who is secretly a Russian spy named Dimitri Mosenkov — pleads unsuccessfully to keep the Amphibian Man alive for further study and simultaneously is ordered by his Soviet handlers to euthanize the creature.
When Elisa overhears the American's plans for the Amphibian Man, she persuades Giles to help her liberate him. Hoffstetler stumbles upon Elisa's plot in progress and chooses to assist her.
Though initially reluctant, Zelda also becomes involved in the successful escape. Elisa keeps the Amphibian Man in her bathtub, planning to release him into a nearby canal in several days when it is scheduled to rain to provide access to the ocean.
Strickland interrogates Elisa and Zelda, among others, but learns nothing. Back at the apartment, Giles discovers the Amphibian Man devouring one of his cats.
Startled, the Amphibian Man slashes Giles's arm and rushes out of the apartment. He gets as far as the cinema downstairs before Elisa finds him and returns him to her apartment.
The creature touches Giles on his balding head and wounded arm; the next morning, Giles discovers his hair has begun growing back, and the wounds on his arm have healed.
Elisa has sex with the Amphibian Man. General Hoyt unexpectedly arrives and tells Strickland he has 36 hours to recover the Amphibian Man, or his career and life will be over.
Meanwhile, Hoffstetler is told he will be extracted in two days. As the planned release date approaches, the Amphibian Man's health begins to deteriorate.
Hoffstetler goes to meet his handlers with Strickland tailing him. At the rendezvous, Hoffstetler is shot by one of his handlers, but Strickland in turn not only shoots and kills both handlers, but also shoots Hoffstetler, having realized that he is a spy.
Strickland tortures the dying Hoffstetler into revealing specifics on the "team" which broke out Amphibian Man, and is surprised to learn that Elisa and Zelda are implicated.
Strickland threatens Zelda at home, unsuccessfully, until her husband, Brewster, reveals that Elisa has the Amphibian Man.
Zelda immediately telephones Elisa, warning her to release the creature. An enraged Strickland ransacks Elisa's empty apartment until he finds a calendar note revealing where she plans to release the Amphibian Man.
At the canal, Elisa and Giles are bidding farewell to the creature when Strickland arrives, knocks Giles down, and shoots both the Amphibian Man and Elisa.
The Amphibian Man quickly heals himself and slashes Strickland's throat, killing him. As the police arrive on the scene with Zelda, the Amphibian Man takes Elisa and jumps into the canal where he heals her.
When he applies his healing ability underwater to the scars on Elisa's neck, they open to reveal gills like his; she jolts back to life, and the two embrace.
In a closing voice-over narration, Giles conveys his belief that Elisa lived "happily ever after" and "remained in love" with the Amphibian Man.
The idea for The Shape of Water formed during del Toro's breakfast with Daniel Kraus in , with whom he later co-wrote the novel Trollhunters.
People can lower their guard a little bit more and listen to the story and listen to the characters and talk about the issues, rather than the circumstances of the issues.
A fan of her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Fingersmith , Del Toro wrote the script with Sally Hawkins in mind for the part and pitched the idea to her while he was intoxicated at the Golden Globes.
The part of Giles was originally written with Ian McKellen in mind and Del Toro was inspired to do so by his performance as the real-life closeted gay filmmaker James Whale who directed Frankenstein , The Invisible Man and Bride of Frankenstein , who found himself unemployable in his later years.
Michael Shannon was cast as Richard Strickland, the villain of the film. Shannon and Del Toro had early conversations about the notion that Strickland would have been the hero of the film if it had been made in the s, something that fascinated the actor.
Principal photography began on August 15, , in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario ,      and wrapped on November 6, Elisa and Giles's old flats, which in the film are just above the Orpheum, were actually a set built at Cinespace Studios , west Toronto.
In an interview with IndieWire about the film, del Toro said:. This movie is a healing movie for me. For nine movies I rephrased the fears of my childhood, the dreams of my childhood, and this is the first time I speak as an adult, about something that worries me as an adult.
I speak about trust, otherness, sex, love, where we're going. These are not concerns that I had when I was nine or seven. Guillermo Del Toro was torn between making the film in color or in black and white, and was at one point leaning toward the latter.
Del Toro admitted:. That was honestly a battle I was expecting to lose. I was of two minds. On one hand I thought black and white would look luscious, but on the other hand I thought it would look postmodern , like I was being reflective rather than immersed.
It's good, because it got me three million more. Alexandre Desplat is the composer of the film's score. It had its official wide release in the United States on December 22, The website's critical consensus reads, " The Shape of Water finds Guillermo del Toro at his visually distinctive best—and matched by an emotionally absorbing story brought to life by a stellar Sally Hawkins performance.
Ben Croll of IndieWire gave the film an 'A' rating and called it "one of del Toro's most stunningly successful works Del Toro is a world-class film artist.
There's no sense trying to analyze how he does it. While The Shape of Water isn't groundbreaking, it is elegant and mesmerizing.
Rex Reed of the New York Observer gave the film 1 out of 4 stars, calling it "a loopy, lunkheaded load of drivel" and, referring to Hawkins's role in Maudie , described people with disabilities as "defective creatures.
Reed also stated Benicio was Spanish, whereas he is Puerto Rican, and Guillermo the actual director hails from Mexico.
The Shape of Water appeared on many critics' year-end top-ten lists,  among them:. The Shape of Water received 13 nominations at the 90th Academy Awards , the most of any film in the race.
The film also spawned some debate about whether the fact that it was filmed in Canada, with a predominantly Canadian crew and many Canadian actors in the supporting roles, should have made it eligible to be nominated for the Canadian Screen Awards.
Under Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television rules, to qualify for CSA nominations under the rules for international coproductions at least 15 per cent of a film's funding must come from a Canadian film studio.
Even the film's Canadian co-producer, J. Miles Dale , stated that he supports the rules and does not believe the film should have been eligible.
In February , the estate of Paul Zindel initiated a lawsuit in United States District Court for the Central District of California against director Guillermo del Toro and associate producer Daniel Kraus , alleging that The Shape of Water "brazenly copies the story, elements, characters, and themes" of Zindel's work Let Me Hear You Whisper , which depicts a cleaning lady bonding with a dolphin and attempting to rescue it from a secret research laboratory's nefarious uses.
I'd never heard of this play before making The Shape of Water, and none of my collaborators ever mentioned the play.
There have also been accusations that The Shape of Water plagiarised Amphibian Man , a Soviet film based on a Soviet novel of the same name. As for the former, Jeunet pointed out some of the similarities in the saturation of the colours, overall art direction and the use of anthropomorphic objects as well the music which is a reminiscent of Yann Tiersen 's soundtrack on the former.
Responding to Jeunet's accusations of plagiarism by email, del Toro cited on the influences of Terry Gilliam 's works as the inspiration for The Shape of Water.
Desplat has also emphasized the importance of water as essential to both the score and to the themes of the film itself.
