This is a beautiful movie, told in a very patient way. It is visually breathtaking and you leave taking much of it with you. Even the way you look at the pet in your home will change. A bit long, but settle in and let the story unfold. I didn't rate it a "Must Go!" because it may not be for everyone. My 13 year old son and my elderly mother came along and both were impressed by the film. My son enjoyed analyzing the events in the story and what they might have meant. It definitely incites conversation.

What a movie!! I did not get to see it in 3D; although I don't know if I would have been able to watch it in that format. It was a fantastic movie....the special effects captured even dullest of eyed imaginations and left you feeling that you had experienced exactly what PI was going through. However, more than the special effects the writing was sharp and it held you captive while stirring your spiritual self. One of the most profound lines in the movie was at the end of the movie....When the grown up PI said " As it is with God; which story do you believe?". Great Piece of Work!. It wasn't sad...it was a story of strength....doubt....and faith. And without the suspension of disbelief the movie would have collapsed simular to that of organized religion. It's a most see.

I loved this film. It was beautifully acted, with superb cinematography and directing. I think I enjoyed it more because I had read the book, but I've talked to others who haven't read the book and still loved the film. I recommend it to anyone who loves quality movies with interesting and inspiring stories but without lots of violence (except for a few animal scenes), sex and terrible language.

it was a little tear jerker but i thought it could have used more action but it had a great story you could see it if you like a good storyline but little action

LOP Is a "fantastic" story depicting the coming of age journey of a young Indian boy who demonstrates how strong character and belief in one's self, can help you get through the most difficult times of your life. Kudos to his parents for supporting his inquisitiveness as a growing boy. He knew he would make it through because his parents and culture planted a faith in his core being.
