So i have watched Life of PI.
I highly recommend it, based on :
- 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.
Well...it 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?'
