✔       Introduction



Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up again with my new blog with the title of "Hollywood Movie Review - The Shape of Water". Friends, this blog is about a recently released Hollywood Fiction, Romantic and Drama Genres movie "The Shape of Water". The story of the movie revolves around a woman who is "Mute" and has an amorous relationship with a creature nobody has seen before.  the movie throws light on different love emotions that a special person like that lady can have.  The movie depicts that love has no boundaries and two people from different backgrounds or even two different species can fall in love and their love can blossom.  This movie was directed by Guillermo del Toro and was produced by J. Miles Dale along with Guillermo del Toro. The screen play for the movie was written by Vanessa Taylor, and yet again, Guillermo del Toro gave his hand in the screenplay as well. This movie was produced under the supervision of TSG Entertainment, an American Film Financing Company.  The movie was showcased in the 74th Venice International Film Festival for its world premiere in August 2017 where it managed to impress the viewers and won Golden Lion.

The 21st century has produced no finer movie than Pan’s Labyrinth, Guillermo del Toro’s 2006 masterpiece, which acts as a sister picture to his 2001 Spanish civil war ghost story, The Devil’s Backbone. Like Del Toro’s first feature, Cronos (1993), these Spanish-language gems possessed a unique cinematic voice, the distant echo of which could still be heard even amid the thunderous roar of 2013’s Pacific Rim. Now, with his awards-garlanded latest (co-scripted by Game of Thrones graduate Vanessa Taylor), Del Toro has conjured a boundary-crossing hybrid that is as adventurously personal as it is universal, a swooning romantic melodrama that reshapes the mythical themes of Beauty and the Beast with deliciously bestial bite.

One day, a mysterious creature is brought into the laboratory which was captured from the Amazon River.  Colonel Richard Strickland is the head of the Department and he brought this creature here.  Out of curiosity, when Colonel Strickland gets closer to the creature, his fingers are slashed by the creature and that is when Elise gets the chance to see the creature for the first time.  Soon afterwards, Elise starts to find attraction towards the creature and starts to communicate with him using sign language and through some other activities such as by feeding him with boiled eggs. This creature is actually an Amphibian Man and Colonel Strickland is conducting research on him.  There is also one Russian Spy in the form of a Doctor whose name is Robert Hoffstetler. He wants to delay the research project on Amphibian Man in order to have further commands from his Headquarters in Russia.  However, since Colonel Strickland tortures Amphibian Man every now and then, even for no reasons, that is why Elise wants to take Amphibian Man out as she has befriended with him and he also responds to Elise in a friendly manner.

✔       Conclusion



The movie "The Shape of Water" is a very unique movie, unique in the sense that it is among few of those films which depicted love emotions in a strange and unnatural manners but still maintaining its integrity and normal film viewing standards.   Not many people out there would like to have sexual encounter with any species other than humans, but in this movie, this has been experimented. The idea was backed by a strong script and such an environment was created which made it look so natural.  The portray of love feelings was the main idea behind the movie which was successfully executed.  The movie was welcomed all around the world and also managed to win many phenomenal awards such as two Golden Globe Awards at 75th Golden Globe Awards as well as three awards at 71st British Academy Film Awards.  On the whole, the movie was very attractive and I enjoyed watching it.
