Have you ever been transported into another world – thanks to a wondrous tale?
I know I have – many times.
Books and movies are two extremely powerful mediums for sparking the imagination.
Last week I went to see the newly released movie, Life of Pi. I saw it in 3D.
I was expecting something out of the ordinary – when I saw the Director was the talented contemporary filmmaker, Ang Lee. What an adventure! What a drama! What a tale!
What I particularly enjoyed in Life of Pi
Here are some of the things I particularly enjoyed in this movie:
– Themes that were explored in a lightly humorous way (e.g. as a child Pi enthusiastically embraced three religions simultaneously – much to the concern of his father)
– The spectacular cinematography – the seascapes and skyscapes – showcasing Gaia in her beauty and awe
– The “choice of two endings” offered the viewer
– The wonderful soundtrack
If you’d like to spend 2 delightful hours in an alternate reality, then I highly recommend seeing Life of Pi in 3D. Read about it here – Life of Pi
