This was a wonderful movie to see with my 12 year old daughter. I loved the message that this movie provides and I will take my 14 year old son to see this movie too. This is a wonderfully directed movie with beautiful cinematography!

Too bad the alternative story didn't get acted out. since they already had the characters hinted earlier in the movie. which was a nice touch, that the book did not have.Since it's frictional, I don't really care about what the message on God was. You could totally make up a different story that God doesn't exist neither, so that's a moot point. It is the imagination, and visualization of the wonder of nature (land animals, sea creatures...etc) that's convincing, because they can really look that amazingly otherworldly. The movie also did a wonderful job in architecture and the ambience, i'd say even better than the book.

This movie has a good moral, with an interesting life of the boy, Pi, but there is a lot of voilence with the animals when their stranded in the boat, for a young child to see. Overall this movie is OK, but including the violence seen, I'll say it's a no.

I agree completely with former reviewer, "edithpiaf" & "uberfan". Excellent movie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE animals, especially big cats so, of course, I cried when animals were killed, laughed when animals were in the picture, & cringed! Yes, it WAS a little slow at first, but as previously stated, this is necessary for the storyline/plot. There was beautiful scenery to see while getting the background story! I, too, stayed awake during the night thinking of the different meanings from the film & how one could compare the animals on the boat to the possible actual people! I now want to read the book!

I really enjoy movies that have all animals as well as a life story. I loved how much that Pi went threw and was still able to make it through with a positive attitude. I laughed and cried, but of course I am a huge sap for things that are very emotional. I would recommend this movie to others. As well as buy this movie when it comes out on DVD.
