Life of Pi PG

2012 ▪ Adventure ▪ 127 Minutes

Directed by Ang Lee. Starring Suraj Sharma, Irfan Khan, Gérard Depardieu, Adil Hussain, and Tobey Maguire.


Yann Martel's ponderous adventure novel gets the big-screen treatment with this Fox 2000 adaptation helmed by director Ang Lee. The coming-of-age story surrounds the son of a zookeeper who survives a shipwreck by stowing away on a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena, and a Bengal tiger by the name of Richard Parker. Suraj Sharma heads up the cast as the young boy, with Gérard Depardieu, Adil Hussain, Irrfan Khan, Tobey Maguire, and Bollywood actress Tabu also starring.

Haunting and beautiful. At times intense, however the 'moral' disappoints.

You wouldn't think a movie about a boat, a boy and a tiger would be compelling, but I loved it.

Wow. The beginning is a little hokey, but when the storm comes on the water, the film casts an amazing spell with a series of unforgettable images glimmering with life. It follows an unsentimental relationship developing between a boy and a magnificently (and mainly digitally) wrought tiger, as they struggle to survive in a world that while beautiful, could extinguish them at any minute. It sounds unfilmable, but Ang Lee nails just the right tone amidst the glorious visuals. I didn't read the book, so I didn't know where it was going and I am glad for that. The twist at the end was as quick and unexpected as it was moving. It's a movie that celebrates the beauty of life, with a sobering awareness of how precarious the moments we share are.
