“In times of growing cynicism and practicalities seeping into relationships, this enchanting fairy-tale with a hint of realism is an exquisite piece of cinema that compels you to believe in miracles.”~Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India
Aroview: At a top secret research facility in the 1950s, a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity. An extraordinarily tender fantasy romance with a stellar performance by Sally Hawkins at it's heart, and buoyed by Del Toro's incomparable visual flair.
3 stars (Good Enough) Although the screenplay weakens quite noticeably the set designs are excellent throughout. Richard Jenkins not for the first time gives a professional supporting performance but takes a backseat to asshole Shannon and the perfectly cast Hawkins.~tubbs
