A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor … a fearsome Bengal tiger.
From director Ang Lee and the novel by Yann Martel, on which it is based. “Life of Pi” certainly is a wondrous film, a work of often breathtaking visual beauty.It certainly testifies strongly to the near-magical powers that material image-making tools wield today. Everything looks beautiful in Life of Pi. The dangerous animals look beautiful. The terrible storms look beautiful. The crashing ocean waves, the twinkling stars, the wondrous carnivorous island on which the hero at one point lands — pure gorgeousness, shimmering with all the wow that superlative 3-D technology has to offer.Lee’s bigger theme isn’t God or survival, but the awesome adventure of making the imaginary visible, the adventure of making movies. Great movie! Oscar for sure! Suraj Sharma is brillant as Pi Patel. He is gonna be huge.
