ODEON says...

‘The Shape Of Water’ is a modern-day fairy tale that chronicles the unlikely romance between a mute cleaning lady and the mysterious creature imprisoned at the laboratory where she works. 

Both Elisa and the amphibian man are terribly lonely, and find happiness in the brief times they’re able to spend together. But the people running the lab see the creature as something sub-human, and Elisa hatches a desperate plan to set him free. 

The latest film from Guillermo del Toro, ‘The Shape Of Water’ has received overwhelming critical acclaim and stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon and Octavia Spencer.

Loved it!

Reviewer: Not BadDate: 2018-03-17

I thought it was fantastic, weird and beautiful. Not your normal kind of film, but very very lovely. Nice ending, lots of laughs, would recommend to any film enthusiast with an imagination!

PC rubbish

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2018-03-13

I couldn't believe the number of anti-male comments there were in this film. I found it offensive as a man. It wasn't a patch on 3 Billboards - that film was robbed of the Oscar by this tick box checking piece of rubbish.

The shape of wat

Reviewer: taydocDate: 2018-03-07

I was very disappointed with this film,the mixture of romance and science fiction did not go down well with me. Quite how it got so many nominations for awards is baffling.

Little Mermaid

Reviewer: HiddenawayDate: 2018-02-28

Live action version of the Disney Classic: The Little Mermaid synopsis involves a mermaid (that becomes mute) rescuing a prince, they then fall in love before she is briefly captured by a sea witch - spot the differences in this film!
