It's been four years since Slumdog Millionaire took home eight Oscars. I found myself thinking of that movie because Life of Pi opens in India and the cast is predominantly comprised of Indian actors. Like Slumdog Millionaire, the movie uses several actors to portray the main character at different ages. In fact, the older Pi is played by Irrfan Khan, who appears in both movies.

The story is framed with the older Pi relating his story to a writer. We learn that Pi's father owned a zoo, and his mother worked there as a botanist. His father is fond of giving Pi advice, and one memorable lesson involves a demonstration of how dangerous tigers can be, and that they should not be treated like a pet or a friend.

Pi is shown at four different ages, but the bulk of the story shows Pi as a young man, so Suraj Sharma receives the most screen time. Like Cast Away and 127 Hours, the movie relies on one actor holding our attention, and Sharma does a wonderful job of doing just that. It's his first role and he had to show a vast range of emotions in order for everything to work.

The first part of the movie shows Pi's life as a young boy. We see him go to school, and ultimately fall in love. But his life (and the story) is shaken up when his mother and father inform him that they have decided to move the family to Canada. Along with some of the animals, they set sail for their new home. If you have seen the trailer, or even the poster for this movie, it's not a spoiler to reveal that Pi ends up in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. I imagine that's quite a selling point, as a lot of people would wonder how such a relationship could possibly work.

Director Ang Lee overcomes the limitations of such an enclosed setting in several spectacular ways.

Format: DVD
Ang Lee's movie version of "Life of Pi" is an extraordinary achievement. Like "The Lord of the Rings" or "The Road", two very different movies made from overwhelmingly well-lauded books, Ang Lee's "Life of Pi" flies in the face of those who at one time might have said that "it couldn't be done, and if it was done, it wouldn't be done well". Lee accomplishes not only a fine and sensitive adaption of Yann Martel's now classic novel, he has fashioned a work of art that stands rock-solidly on it's own merits of cinematic mastery. For the movie exists as a profound statement affirming the indomitability of the human spirit, expressed in an artistic form that is stunningly beautiful, brilliantly edited, meticulously performed, almost metaphysically imagined and very deeply affecting. Both times I saw this in theatres I went away profoundly moved and highly stimulated intellectually, for "Life of Pi" is not JUST the story of an Indian boy in a lifeboat with a tiger named Richard Parker, a Zebra, a Hyena and an Orangutan called "Orange Juice". It is a daring and unflinching look at questions that today we dare not talk about, or are actually embarrassed to talk about - those mostly being around the question of the existence of God ( or Gods ) and whether Reason triumphs over Faith. ( As if one must exist without the other! ). Martel's multi-layered narrative that presents a story and then questions that story digs far more deeply into some big questions than a cursory or reactionary judgement of it might suggest. Lee makes sure that all those levels are clearly discernible for those with the courage to look and see. This is a film that will move you very deeply and have you thinking for many days afterward.Read more ›

VIDEO (3D):

‘Life of Pi’ 3D comes with MPEG-4 MVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Shot digitally with Arri Alexa cameras, the film has a very clean look. The contrasts and details are outstanding: see Pi's chapped lips after months on the life raft, or the individual beads of sand on his face when he washes up on shore, or the fine texture of the writer's t-shirt. All of the live-action cinematography is intense and sharp. The picture on the whole has a great sense of pop and clarity. The application of 3D by Ang Lee really adds extra dimensionality to ‘Life of Pi,’ and the resultant visual experience in an impactful and engaging way. Clarity and colour are practically indistinguishable from the 2D version. The application of depth and presence is very subtle and natural in the way it envelopes you: like the rippling waves, the candles on the river during the Vishnu ceremony, Pi floating underwater watching the ship sink into the depths, and the flying fish madly flapping in the air around the lifeboat. It was a very immersive experience. Please note that the End Credits are also in 3D! (5/5)

VIDEO (2D):

‘Life of Pi’ arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The transfer is pristine, with tremendous details and contrasts. Even in 2D, the picture has a great sense of pop and clarity. Colours are vibrant and blacks are inky. The result is a great visual experience, but it is less immersive than the 3D version. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Both 3D and 2D versions come with an energetic DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 (48kHz, 24-bit), giving us an immersive experience: like the sinking of the cargo ship during the furious storm, swells pound the deck and water sprays, and rain pours down from all sides. We are also put right in the middle of the tempest.
