Probably some of you have already seen “The Life of Pi,” but if you’re not among them, don’t delay. It isn’t one of those films that you will enjoy just as much on DVD. The scope is too large.
I love going to the movies but when my friend Susana called and suggested we take in a flick this afternoon, I felt so-so about the idea. I like uplifting films, and I’d heard that The Life of Pi is muy triste. I am glad I didn’t listen to those rumors and skip going because it certainly was not true.
The protagonist, “Pi” is an Indian boy from Pondicherry. He survives 227 days in a life boat with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. The relationship that develops between the two is surprising.
Ang Lee is the director of this adventure tale that also touches on other themes such as Farewells, Friendship and Family.
