A romance with dubious lovemaking streaming


At Guillermo del Toro’s The shape of water was a critical and commercial favorite when it first hit theaters in December 2017, scoring 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and earning $ 195 million at the box office.

An often magnificent blend of romance and fantasy, the fable earned thirteen Oscar nominations, ultimately winning four trophies, including Best Picture and Best Director. In all of this, you might be wondering how del Toro describes The shape of water in his own words given the levels of cheer and adulation that followed him. Well… he calls it “the fucking fish movie”.

One of the biggest questions as a result of the project was not about the star-crossed lovers of different species doing everything to be together, but how point A ended up in point B, if you understand our drift.

Sally Hawkins provided a visual aid that didn’t make things any clearer, but if you’re feeling brave enough, places like Twitter, Tumblr, and Reddit have provided a lot of fan art.

Let’s not forget that the opening scene of The shape of water involves trivialities like a hard-boiled egg, a mundane morning routine, and masturbation vigorous enough to shock a teenager who just found the internet.

What we’re trying to say is that del Toro isn’t afraid to go, but he was still smart enough to leave it open for interpretation. According to FlixPatrol, HBO Max subscribers have viewed it en masse, so maybe the talk is ready to start again.
