This amazing movie goes straight from the screen into your heart, leaving you with a feeling of gratitude and curiosity about life.
The film, based on a novel by Yann Martel and directed by Ang Lee, tells the story of Pi, a boy who lives in India with his parents and older brother. The family owns the big zoo in town, but business is slow, and they decide to move to Canada with hope of a better life.
They pack their belongings, as well as all the animals from the zoo, and set off on a cargo ship. But the journey is disrupted when they cross paths with a violent storm.
The ship sinks, but Pi survives by getting into a lifeboat with… a tiger!
The lifeboat becomes their home, but sharing a home with a hungry tiger is not always easy. A unique, and at times difficult, friendship develops between Pi and the tiger as they fight for survival.
The experience is life changing for Pi, who during his young life has examined Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, in his quest for finding God.
Suraj Sharma plays the role of Pi with incredible skill and emotion. Even though Sharma has the burden of being the only actor on screen throughout much of the film, his talent holds the audience’s attention from the beginning to end.
The magnificent details, colours and imagination used in this film are outstanding. You will not cease to be amazed by the beautiful and surreal scenery.
This is a movie that grabs your heart and teaches you more about life than you would ever expect. With an amazing storyline, astonishing visual effects, camerawork and acting, Life of Pi
is nothing but a magical
