Life of PI

So i have watched Life of PI.

I highly recommend it, based on :
    • Storytelling
    • Graphic
    • Sentiments
    • Message contained
    • List of Actors
    • ....just about everything about it

I was informed by my brother it was derived from a non-fictional book and the writer is an Englishman(actually canadian-French). He's guessing that the price of the book must have gone up by now.

I still want to buy it anyway, its been awhile i did not touch any non-fictional book. My brain need some fantasy. is kinda sad movie to me, i didn't cry tho' but i feel saddened only that i get the message and stops feeling sorry.

Im a movie junkie yeah so don't mind me go gugu gaga over a movie hehe.

Its about a boy who is so interested in God, and always looking for God. His father does not believe in religions and his mother only gave a vague impression of religion towards him.

He ended up embracing, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam altogether (even Judaism in later life). And at 16 he was involve in a shipwreck when he came to experience an even larger meaning of God-ness.

But what struck me most about this movie is that...this dialogue : 

Writer : so... the orangutan was your mother, the zebra was the sailor, the hyena was the cook, and Richard Parker, the tiger, was ....

Pi Patel " why? you don't believe in the story?"

Writer " well...some of it is rather extraordinary"

Pi Patel " Let me ask you, there are two stories and in each story i was in a shipwreck, lost my family and become an orphan and that's not going to change but Which is the better story, the story with animals or the story without animals?' 

Writer: '......The story with animals.' 

Pi Patel: 'Thank you. And so it goes with God.'

So...the key point is.

Our Life.

We can choose it to be bland, factious and trully realistic.


We can choose life with God and has life full of Miracles, Wonder and Magical.

So....which story do you prefers?
