‘the shape of The water’, in addition to being a remarkable piece of art and a more than fair winning of the awards to best director and best film —in addition to having been awarded his soundtrack and production design— in the last ceremony of the Oscars, is a true ode to the seventh art.
This is not only reflected along a film filled with references to the great classics of film history such as ‘The story of Ruth’, ‘Follow the fleet’ or ‘That Night in Rio’; but goes beyond to affect the conduct of a Guillermo del Toro that has replicated —more or less conscious— some scenes from his films of the header. Something that has been noticed by the user of the Vimeo Ulysse Thevenon and has been compiled in the following video, in which compares several passages of ‘The way of the water’ with the tapes that inspired them.
in Addition to the influences more obvious, as you can be ‘The woman and the monster’ or the two feature films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet ‘Amélie’ and ‘Delicatessen’, call the attention, especially the parallels of the last Toro with some passages of ‘One, two, three… Splash’ and, of course, with the short Dutch ‘The Space Between Us’.
of course, beyond curiosity, all of this has given rise to several controversies, accusations of plagiarism and bad rolls with some colleagues in the profession; but, as is often said, in the arts everything is done, and it is very complicated to create without drinking to a greater or lesser extent, of those jobs that have awakened our sensitivity, and have driven us to create stories.
