Del Toro’s ode to creature features is a dark, fairytale love story.

Sally Hawkins shines as Elisa, a curious woman rendered mute in a childhood accident, who is now working as a janitor in a research center in early 1960s Baltimore. Her comfortable, albeit lonely, routine is thrown when a newly-discovered humanoid sea creature is brought into the facility. Del Toro’s fascination with the creature features of the 50s is beautifully translated here into a supernatural romance with dark fairy tale flourishes, which had its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival 2017.
