Teen Times by Cody Hilton
Life of Pi
The Academy Award winning film Life of Pi surprised many by the nominations it received, however, listening to people leaving the theatre should have been a prediction of good things to come for this amazing film about a boy, a tiger and the sea.
It is a grand adventure on an epic scale and tells of the survival skills that go into play in an unforgettable style. The 3D state-of-the-art wizardry of the film creates the amazing place where Pi learns to command his destiny during 227 days at sea and the mental adaptation implemented. Suraj Sharma’s spiritual journey becomes one with his nautical journey in a mysterious story.
Dealing with thirst and starvation, mighty storms, flying fish, humpbacked whales, schools of dolphins, a luminous jelly fish and his companion the fierce tiger is handled magnificently with 3D by Chilean director of photography Claudio Miranda.
Life of Pi ends with a surprising question about the reality of what the audience sees and challenges teleological issues, however, this is a film level that inspires the spirit of man and the finest in state-of-the-art movie production. This is a great movie for the entire family.
