"Believe The Unbelievable"
The story of an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son who finds himself in the company of a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal tiger after a shipwreck sets them adrift in the Pacific Ocean.
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.
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 ;)
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. :)
