A deaf movie
By Jack Anderson on May 4, 2019
 (2/10)

NO INCITING MOMENT
The Shape of Water is having an excruciatingly slow pace. It takes exactly twenty minutes before understand what this film is about, when the creature is hitting someone. But actually, even there, this is not really the inciting moment, but merely a step forward. And actually, there is no inciting moment whatsoever. This is such a boring film.

DEAF
Since the lead character of the film is deaf, you'd normally have to compensate for that. But there is no special storytelling way to compensate for that. She just does not talk, and that's it.
Overall, the film itself is actually deaf. It doesn't say anything.

GREEN, GREEN AND THEN MORE GREEN
The film is green, green and then even greener. This is so green that my soul tried to vomit.

A DEAF AMELIE POULAIN
Also, from the first minutes of the film, just after the opening scene underwater, I couldn't stop thinking about the film Amélie (Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain) from Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The cinematography, colors and themes are so similar that I could also say that this film just stole it, but I won't go there.

NO TENSION
At no point in the film is there any tension being built whatsoever. It feels like a bad TV series with less emotions.

CREEPY CREATURE
Also, the creature is so creepy that I couldn't stand watching it. I felt repelled, which was probably the goal of the film, but it succeeded way too much. I just wanted to look away from the screen each time the creature was on it.

OSCAR
This shows why, at times, I will never understand the Academy, who gave the Oscar for best picture to this film, while Dunkirk was also a nominee.

SUMMARY
I give it 2 out of 10. Very bad. Technically okay, but lacking emotions and a real story.
