Life of Pi (2012)

I re-read the first couple chapters of the novel, and the film seemed to be faithful as far as the beginning went. Pi’s voyage in the raft was definitely a visual interpretation of the director, Ang Lee, and it was well done. I am sure it would have been even better in 3D,  but I only watched the 2D version.

The story is in part about spirituality and part survivorship. Although the focus falls squarely on the man beast relationship (Pi and Richard Parker), it also carries other themes like man against nature, man’s cognition against animal instinct,…

In other words, the film is a good prep. before reading the 2002’s Man Booker Prize winning novel written by Canadian author, Yann Matel.
