|Richard Parker keeps Pi at bay.|
Some time ago I mentioned a favourite novel of mine – "Life of Pi," - a Booker prize-winner by Yann Martell.
It has now been made into a film and yesterday I saw that film and loved the story even more. For two hours I was mesmerised by the Indian boy, Pi and a
tiger called Richard Parker.
The film’s gentle beginning has beautiful scenes of
and the family’s zoological gardens, but these are soon overtaken by the noise
and chaos of a storm at sea with the tragedy of a shipwreck and Pi’s struggle
for survival against both the sea and the tiger.
Suffice it to say that if you enjoy adventure; daring and bravery as well as the most beautiful photography and seascapes, then this is the film for you. It even has a surprise ending.
I strongly recommend it.
