Bold, ambitious and poignant; ‘Life of Pi’ is an intriguing yarn that delves into the subject of faith and providence.
An incredible achievement in the art of storytelling and modern filmmaking, this visual telling of Yann Martel’s Booker Prize-winning novel about a boy stranded on the high seas is probably one of Taiwanese director Ang Lee’s best films yet.
The book, as Martel describes in the first few pages is emblematic of his hunger at a time when he needed direction and purpose for his life. Like the protagonist that defied all odds to survive his oceanic ordeal, director Ang Lee too triumphed over adversity – an unknown lead actor and cast, a book once deemed “unfilmable”, a castaway tale of a boy on a lifeboat – to conjure up the most magical film of the year.
