The relationship between the Fish and Manolin takes on a whole new meaning after watching Shape of Water from Guillermo del Toro. Fish for Life‘s climax is intended to sensitize, to open the eyes for a intense bond between the fisherman and the sea creature.
Only a few meters away, the dying man recognizes a mysterious, huge animal. Never before has he seen a creature with this grace and beauty. The spirit of the Fish awakens a new will for life in Manolin.
Manolin discovers a pure and deep feeling for the creature. Not in a sexual way, though.
