Believe it or not, I was more impressed with the the casting choices and performances of the players than by the effects.
I would recommend seeing Pi in 3D, but I don't think that's it's essential to your viewing enjoyment. You will see no more imaginative film this year than Life of Pi, whose conceit of a young Indian boy stranded with a Bengal Tiger in a lifeboat amid the Pacific Ocean is fantastical yet real in its metaphoric implications. The film begs interpretation from the multiplicity of religions to the place of mankind in a hostile, Darwinian world.
In the end, Lee is interested in the individual's place in the universe as he struggles to harness nature and yet live in harmony with these elements. Canadian actress Athena Karkanis began her professional career in acting in 2003 with an episode on the Chappelle's Show (2003).

Granted, the movie was very beautiful, but in the end, Life Of Pi was more character driven than anything.
While the framing device of a story told to a stranger uses the old flashback, the lonely lifeboat is as new as any story told in the last century.


Ultimately the benign brotherhood of beasts and humans is affirmed not so much by lofty philosophy but by the necessity of man and beast working together to survive.
The opening scene in Pi's family zoo could be right out of Terence Malick's visionary camera, a montage of nature gorgeous in its simplicity. The conflict with the gross cook aboard the Japanese cargo ship taking Pi's family and animals to Canada is emblematic of the challenges facing the gifted with the groundlings. Although it is not given to us to have them all, Pi's piety practically makes us believers in the universal brotherhood.
Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter.
Suraj Sharma as the young Pi was charming, funny, and incredibly engaging, while Irrfan Khan as the older Pi was fantastically genuine and warm.
Also, if you've read the book and are concerned that the story you loved may have been compromised in anyway, worry no longer.
The several formalistic shots of the boat at night are worthy of the best lighting in the best aquariums in the world. Pi's relationship with tiger "Richard Parker" represents all mankind's struggle to live in harmony with the forces it cannot control.


Her credits include the Canadian teen drama The Best Years (2007), The Border (2008), and Wild Kratts (2011). Not even a single moment is dull, in fact the story is woven so tightly that you never realize that the script is so simple. Together with the impressive use of 3D, director Ang Lee has visually taken us from the opulence of Crouching Tiger and the minimalism of Brokeback Mountain into a fusion world of fancy and reality.
The characters are so rich and full of life that you really can't help but fall in love with them. It is beautifully directed and kudos to Ang Lee, not only was he able to capture the beauty of India, he was also able to get the best of the actors. I would also like to add, as someone who spends time with tigers on a daily basis, the animators did a wonderful and accurate job of bringing Richard Parker to life and making him the active and vital character that is so incredibly essential to the success of this story.
