The Shape of Water (2017)
Immersive and atmospheric movie.
With the Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro again proves his impeccable competence with the creation of atmospheric, fairytale-like worlds.
The production design and love for detail in this movie is spectacular and immediately immerses you into the setting.
Sally Hawkins as the mute main protagonist does a phantastic job!
The shortcoming of this movie is the story, which is unconventional but really dull in parts. This makes the movie less likeable than it could be.
too flawed to be enjoyable
This premise had a lot of potential. I wanted to like the movie, but was really disappointed in the end.
It was unfocused, the worldbuilding felt inconsistent and the different parts didn't seem connected.
A futuristic Berlin skyline, retro interiors, contemporary cars, and buildings didn't fit together in this context.
The acting by the three main protagonists was alright and had many good parts, but was hampered by a rather bad, uninteresting plot which included some dull dialogs. It sometimes just felt randomly diced together.
It wasn't a terrible movie, but it was just too flawed to be enjoyable.
