Life of Pi is simply magnificent, a truly masterpiece and is now part of my all-time favorite movies.
From the technical point of view, it is astonishing, the colors dance with the forms to create landscapes to take your breath away, it is amazing to see how realistic a CGI can be nowadays, even if they have filmed 4 different tigers, Suraj Sharma (Pi) was never even near a real tiger.

Life of Pi is not just a survival story of a castaway in challenging conditions. While all this is present, it is a simple fixture for a table of allegorical representations of several life happenings, survival instinct, faith and affection. Interconnected, the film makes no judgments about the authority in relation to each other, leaving the choice to the viewer, who will decide according to his own disposition on life, faith and relationships.
The history is just perfect, it is full with symbolic meanings that you only realize at the end of the movie, both the introducing and the ending wrap the main history giving it even more meaning.

Ang Lee performs probably the most significant film of his career with the adaptation of the book bythe canadian Yann Martel. The reflection of Taiwanese filmmaker is noticeable in the way each image with meaning grabs and transforms simple scenarios as a boat on the water to subliminal images full of spiritualism.

Life of Pi is a technical marvel and a treasure film destined to become a modern classic. In my personal opinion, this is a movie you must see, and ofc among the best of the year.
This movie has been in my library for a long time. Unwatched.
I prejudiced this movie too much.

Why? Because I thought, it is a movie about a boy who's getting in trouble, and finds himself on a small rescue boat on the ocean with a tiger. And the tiger. is getting his very best friend, they r gonna survive and: HAPPY END.

A Boy.
A Tiger.
On a boat.
Before watching this movie I thought, okay, this might get REALLY boring. Well I did not got bored at all! There was so much happing all the time.
I do not want to spoiler, but I loved the ending as well. Not the real big Hollywood - Ending where everyone is happy.

Stupid plot. Well, it wasn't.

When you watch this movie, you will get funny scenes (especially in the beginning), and really good actors.
You get stunning pictures and I do not mean the tiger by that. Sure the tiger / animals were GREAT, but I loved the pictures around the boat really much.




Life of Pi was one of the best movies I have seen this year... and it is October right now ;)

Amazing cgi but if I'm really honest I started to get bored watching it.

My first rewatch since I saw it for the first time when it came out and Life of Pi continues to be absolutely wonderful. A true visual masterpiece.

Mostly what I wanted to remove from this second viewing was to pay more attention to details and see if my interpretation of the story could be different. It wasn't. I still have the same idea about the story.
Is very interesting how some more complex films might cause different emotions and ideas on every person. This film might be seen from many different perspectives and that's what's the best of it.

Ang Lee totally deserved the oscar for Best Director because all of the things about this films were impeccably done.
Triumph of form over substance. Great pictures, effects, and music. Monologues little pompous. For the first time my favorite character in the film was a tiger. :)
Ang Lee's gorgeous visuals are worth the watch. Also, I find the film LIFE OF PI much less annoying than the book in its conclusion, thanks to Lee's use of reflection with Richard Parker. So there's that.
Es una perdida de tiempo, no se salva nada, es basura que en 10 años sera olvidada. esta muy sobre valorada.
