There is an enchanting escapism, in which Del Toro uses a visual display and sociopolitical parables in order to embellish romanticism in a film that honors the genres of cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
[Guillermo del Toro] has directed Sally Hawkins in a remarkable performance telling this tale of love without saying one word in an elaborate production that is visual, imaginative and enthralling from beginning to end.
Interestingly primed but never fully satisfying, The Shape of Water will enchant those inclined towards the film's romantic investments in one of Del Toro's most willfully rosy-tinted films concerning mankind.
The Shape of Water juggles heart-wrenching tragedy, sharp-witted humor, and heartwarming brilliance. Del Toro has this personal understanding of flawed humans and eccentric creatures resulting in something magical and wondrous.
