“Without a single weak link in the exceptional cast…it’s a film that makes you feel a lot. But overridingly you feel lucky — lucky to be watching it, lucky that something so sincerely sweet, sorrowfully scary and surpassingly strange can exist in this un-wonderful world, and desirous of hanging on to as much of its magic for as long as you can after you reemerge back onto dry land.”THE PLAYIST.

“Guillermo del Toro channels all the streams that make him unique into The Shape Of Water, pouring his heart, soul and considerable craft into an exquisite creature fable.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.

“Perhaps the greatest of The Shape of Water’s many surprises is how extravagantly romantic it is, driven throughout by an all-conquering belief in soulmates as lifelines.” VARIETY.

“Like the best bath you’ve ever had, it sends tingles coursing through every part of you that other films don’t reach.” THE TELEGRAPH (UK).
