It may be the most beautiful and visual film I've seen. The locales, the colors and textures are beyond description.
The story. Very tough to review without major spoilers which I wont do.
So basically it's a spiritual journey embodied in one boys experiences being shipwrecked and cast on the ocean alone with the company of a Tiger. Pi and his daily dealings on the ocean are threaded back by early scenes we see of his life in India. How Pi copes with survival and the things he must do to survive that are counter to his inner beliefs is where we travel in the film.
The ending is one that will have you and yours debating forever about 'what did it mean'.
I found the film engrossing, but more important Ang Lee's film is visually a masterpiece. This alone is worth price of admission. This is not a 'wait for DVD' flick. Run out and buy a 3D ticket and enjoy what film making is supposed to be. Trust me on this one, go 3D
