The Shape of Water

Post by Anyanka » Sun Mar 11, 2018 5:00 pm

My daughter and I went to see the oscar-winning 'The Shape of Water' a couple of days ago - I knew I was going to love it as soon as the title sequence started... not only did it look beautiful, but there was accordion on the soundtrack throughout the film!

Highly recommended for all sorts of reasons ;)

Is it a soppy chick flick?
Hohner Vox 4P, Hohner Tango II, Galotta Continent. I just wish I could play them!

Well, I suppose it's kind of a weird film and set in 1962, hence the accordion music...

Nice soundtrack....some one described the movie as a cross between Amelie and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Personally I was disappointed but only perhaps because Gulliermo del Toro's last film Pans Labyrinth was such a surreal and terrifying experience ...think Tarantino gets hold of a fairytale set against the Spanish civil war as a backdrop...
Right or wrong make it strong...when in doubt miss it out...

Have you got a Youtube link to the soundtrack? The one I listened to didn't sound like accordion.

Absolutely not! There is a love story, and it's got elements of fairy tales/magic realism, but if it were a chick flick, you wouldn't find the daughter & me anywhere near it ;) Describing it as a 'cross between Amelie and Creature from the Black Lagoon' is rather appropriate!

Very odd. Most of the trailers I found on YouTube seem to omit the accordion, although it was a major feature through the entire soundtrack. The accordion comes in around 1:25 on this one: https://youtu.be/0x5uo85ku6Y

Let this reply stand in for a stream of profanity. Sounds like "Once upon a Time in the West" trailers without harmonica or "The Third Man" trailers without zither.
