Watched it twice
One of the best movies I've seen. The ah-ha effect is building up slowly and the big AH-HAAA comes right at the end where you least expect it, and completes the whole story to one piece where everything makes sense.
There were a couple of scenes with cosmetic "imperfection", where the tiger didn't look as real as it should have but all in all they did an amazing job with the animation. Thru the whole movie you are convinced to be right there, by the boat, watching him struggle to survive and making sense out of everything that has happened (lost of his family, etc). The acting of all actors is top!
Ang Lee was able to capture me from beginning to the end. The story is actually so touching that you never look around yourself. Your eyes are glued to the screen from start to end. Humor is planted with care to the precise moment where you'd allow yourself to rest and laugh, then he returns gently back to the drama.
This movie is perfection.
