In the video above, del Toro goes further into explaining how they made that scene work, the twisted fairytale story behind The Shape of Water, and much more. In the splendid The Shape of Water, the mute heroine, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a Baltimore scrubwoman of 1963-has lodgings above the auditorium of a red-velvet-lined theater. Beauty tames the beast in this otherworldly Cold War-era romance.

Elisa learns to communicate with the beast by observing him and treating him with respect, unlike the cartoonishly square government agent, Strickland (Michael Shannon), who guards and mistreats him. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda discover a secret classified experiment. She brings a childlike sense of wonder to her character and uses expressive body language marvelously, often overplaying gestures to speak through playful pantomimes.

The Shape of Water's visual scheme is hypnotic.

The music by Alexandre Desplat envelops the film with Parisian wafts of passion while the cinematography by Dan Laustsen dances alongside Hawkins and offers dark canvases of theatrical lighting.

Though UK aficionados of Guillermo del Toro's work will have to be patient and wait for February to see his latest film, The Shape Of Water, US audiences have already been enjoying it, and the drama has picked up several awards.
