Drawing on classic 1950s movies and the on-going fascination with Area 51 conspiracy theories, Del Toro’s tale of the inexplicable is an old-school cinematic joy.
At the height of the Cold War, in a secret US laboratory, a young, mute woman begins to communicate with a strange, aquatic creature. Intertwining sci-fi, horror and gothic romance to spellbinding effect, Del Toro’s singular vision shows how love takes many shape-shifting forms and this intoxicating film is a pure celebration of tolerance and human connection.
Dir. Guillermo Del Toro, Canada/US, 2017, 123 mins.
