Mexican director Guillermo del Toro has crafted a captivating and sensual tale that places love in stark contrast with the will to power. Set in the cold war era of the 1950's, a mute and sensitive cleaning woman falls in love with a man/fish that has been captured in the Amazon and is reviled by a crude and sadistic government agent. We fear what we cannot control and do not understand. What could be life-giving sinks back into the unconscious, awaiting a time when our eyes are opened to the light within the darkness.
