    Last night I watched 'The Shape of Water' - a last chance to see this praised and awarded production. Here is a list of its many awards:
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5580390/awards

    I had a brief idea of the story but the film turned out to be different from what I expected and it impressed me. I don't think I will remember it for ever but we all had a good feeling about it when we left the cinema and it gave opportunities to compare impressions.

    Yes, I saw this during its first run and I thought it deserved Best Picture.

    Yes, I agree - the impressions, details, colours, music and humour makes it both beautiful and ugly at times - it's like a dream. The immediate love between two totally different individuals - human and creature - and the beautiful ending.

    I haven't seen it yet...but Guillermo Del Toro is brilliant. So, I will expect to be well-entertained.

    I hope you will be - it's not the story itself perhaps but the production which is fascinating.
