People could say there is nothing special with this movie, The Shape of Water, cause the storyline was just a regular romance which you can find in many movies and i somehow cannot counter this argument. But beyond the storyline, (for me) The Shape of Water is The Unusual-Usual romance. It never be Guillermo Del Toro's without a touch of fantasy creature. He had succeeded in remaking the "beauty and the beast" concept into a beautiful poetic romance through every characters, lines along with the green hued cinematography (which remains me a lot with Jean pierre's movie, Amelie). It brought us back to a basic form of love when it is just about finding acceptance and when a happy ending depends on perspectives and not equally applicable for all people (or creatures). For me, The Shape of Water is something, people should definitely watch it.
