Guillermo del Toro created a visually artistic masterpiece with his visionary writing and directing. It's a unique love story told in an amazing setting. Sure there are many plot issues but the message still came across well. This type of film is not my cup of tea, but nevertheless, it deserves praise for its outstanding production. A well deserved 8/10 from me
