This delicious film from del Toro renders
A wealth of ethereal splendours.
A love story (with travail).
Also, a morality tale:
A beautiful creature; its oppressors; its defenders.
Time, loss and grief (with its profound feeling of sinking).
Watching, there were fluctuations in my thinking:
From 'I'm gonna cry. Where's my hankie?'
To 'Ugh, now this feels wanky.'
To me, a misstep: sheeted neighbour, with memory shrinking.
