Movie Review: The Shape of Water
Directed by renowned movie maker Guillermo Del Toro, The Shape of Water is a romantic, bittersweet tale of a blooming love between social misfits. It is the tale of an orphaned mute – but one who can hear – and her love for a part-man-part-amphibian creature. It also follows Zelda’s story, who is a social misfit due to her dark skin tone. She withstands bigotry from her white coworkers. It also tells Giles’s story, a gay man in Cold-War-ravaged Baltimore in the 1960s; he secretly admires a nearby pie shop’s proprietor. Set in the backdrop of 1960s Baltimore during the Cold War, The Shape of Water is an allegoric attestation that love is beautiful and disregards social cues just as Elisa and the Amphibian Man’s love and between Elisa and two misfits – Zelda and Giles – shows.
