The Shape of Water : A Movie that Reinstated Awe and Wonder
“Experience a connection beyond words.”
Both Eliza and the aquatic creature don’t need words to communicate. Language is not a big necessity for connection. They communicate through hand gestures, smiles, and eyes. A daring love story that was unsettling for a while but very fairy-tale like.
“You'll never know just how much I miss youYou'll never know just how much I careAnd if I tried I still couldn't hide my love for you.You ought to know, for haven't I told you soA million or more times.You went away, and my heart went with you.I speak your name in my every prayer.If there is some other way to prove that I love you,I swear I don't know how.You'll never know if you don't know now.“

“Time is but a river flowing from our past.”
Eliza tears the date slip from the calendar to flip it over for the quote of the day. Every day she would wake up to the sound of the alarm clock from deep slumber of her dreams, boil eggs for breakfast, bath, polish her footwear, pull off another date from the calendar and check the quote, sit on the bus and travel to the facility and clean. And she would clean, clean and clean. Same routine every day.
“Life is but the shipwreck of our plans.”
“Unable to perceive the shape of You, I find You all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with Your love, It humbles my heart, For You are everywhere.”
