Review November 2012

Very few filmmakers have the grace, vision, and personal touch of Ang Lee. His latest film, Life Of Pi, is a perfect example of that extraordinary talent, making the unbelievable, believable. The magical tale centers on a young boy named Pi, who loses his family at sea and winds up alone on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Together, the two form a unique bond, spending 227 days lost at sea, fighting for survival. Adapted from the award winning novel by Yann Martel, Life Of Pi is an allegory - part philosophical, part spiritual, and part practical. With an agile script from David Magee and meticulous attention to detail, depth, and color, from a lifelike tiger to the grandeur of the ocean and a frightening thunderstorm, Ang Lee has crafted one of the finest, most mesmerizing films of the year. An absolute wonder to behold, Life Of Pi is an intimate story about the power of storytelling and the essence of life.
