“The Shape of Water” is a film that only del Toro could have made. It is a romantic story of an isolated, mute woman who is not supposed to talk with anybody and a humanoid monster. This lady works in a high-security government laboratory as a cleaning lady. One day she comes to know about the secret, mysterious amphibian kind of creature that lives in the water tank of the lab.
Slowly this lady develops a unique bond with the scaled creature. She understands that the future of this amphibian monster is in hands of the hostile government agent and a marine biologist, and develops a sort of compassion towards it, which slowly becomes love. The love story between a mute cleaning woman and an amphibious monster is picturized absolutely fantastic. The emotions in the picture are in a varied range; injustice, pain, compassion, hope, fear and above all a passion in each frame.
