Ang Lee captures the beauty of life in a gorgeous masterpiece!
'Life of Pi' is a critically acclaimed novel that sparked the interest of readers nationwide. Now you get to see the film version! Film is the greatest artwork in the history of mankind. It captures the way we see the world and incorporates an infinite amount of art forms that no other art can. "Life of Pi' is the story of a young Indian boy named Pi. Pi lives with his family in the most beautiful part of India and has a perfect life until his father makes him and his family move to Canada. In India the family owned a zoo. This caused over 100 animals to be brought aboard the ship to Canada. When a viscous storm kills everyone on board the ship except Pi and a few animals including a Bengal Tiger, Pi embarks on the most difficult and amazing adventure of his life; survival. Pi experiences wildlife at sea like no one can imagine. He forms a bond between the tiger which he named Richard Parker that is more moving than any Disney motion picture. The spectacular beauty the visual effects team created are remarkable. Almost entirely are all the animals digitally mastered throughout the film! They look so real! Ang lee directs this film superbly by making every film aspect over viewed and guided perfectly. The cinematography, film editing, and music are absolutely gorgeous and provide visual art that cannot be matched. The screenplay by David Magee is true to the book very well. The key factor that makes 'Life of Pi' so special is that it can relate to every audience. Children can enjoy seeing beautiful animals and exciting storm scenes while adults can be entertained with them. The deep metaphors in the story are easily explained making it impossible to miss them. I love how this film was PG so that parents can explain the rich depth this film captures making it explainable to youngsters. Life of Pi has rich cinematic structure with beauty and grace to portray one of the greatest stories ever told in the greatest art form ever invented.
