The movie “Life of Pi” is a wonderfully visual telling of a Yann Martel’s best-selling and award-winning novel.
Their is a buzz on internet that the movie tells the incredible survival story of Pi, a teen stranded on a lifeboat for what seems like forever, with a tiger for company at sea in the Pacific Ocean.
The reports also says that the movie is a hauntingly attractive film that, like the fine book it is based on, dwells upon questions of human existence and man’s tangled relationship with God, Nature and beasts of the animal kingdom in a way that few potential blockbusters ever do, with ease and simplicity.
On the whole the movie achieves a quality that is rare for a 3D film – while the consistently awesome technical wizardry adds great beauty and depth to this universe it is never allowed to overshadow the substance of the narrative.
