Set in the year of 1962 Baltimore, "Eliza Esposito" played by Sally Hawkins is a mute custodian at a government laboratory who works lonely as a cleaner. She discovers a lab's top secret, a mysterious scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As time goes by she develops a bond with her new fond friend and fears for the creature's future, when the hostile agent and biologist "Strickland" played Michael Shannon plans to terminate its very existence.
The Director Guillermo del Toro who brought you "Blade 2", "Hobbit", and "Puss In Boots" to name a few sure keeps this theme of the film well as a romantic fantasy of the 60's and the green tinge set's the mood of the film well. If you like strange with a touch of love this for you.
