The film is the film adaptation of "Life of Pi", a book written by Yann Martel in 2001 and the following year won the Booker Prize. The story is set in Pondicherry, India, where Pi's father, owner of a zoo, decided to move the family and business in Canada. During the trip in the Pacific Ocean off the ship sinks and Pi finds himself the sole survivor on a lifeboat in the company of some animal, especially a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. The rest of the story tells how he develops the journey of Pi and his companions for almost a year.
Ang Lee arrives to 3D for the first time and is working without his trusted collaborator James Schamus, producer and scriptwriter of his most important achievements. Lee's new work is eagerly awaited, especially since the project has seen the light after almost ten years of litigation in which several directors have come and gone, and many writers, the final team, consisting of Ang Lee and David Magee, who rewrote the script in 2010, begins filming in January 2011, after several auditions to choose the young protagonist of the story, the role assigned Finally debutant Suraj Sharma. The part of Yann Martel instead was entrusted with Tobey Maguire, but after finished filming, he was removed and replaced by an interpreter less popular, in line with the choice of the rest of the cast. In fact, the production has been inhabited first M. Night Shyamalan, a native of Pondicherry in India where begins the story of Pi and then Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who wanted to bring with him Guillaume Laurent, the screenwriter of The Fabulous Destiny of Amelie.
The film is a fantastic story and magical at the same time, with animals and scenes created entirely on the computer as to hold your breath. However, many have commented as Life of Pi is a fantastic adventure, but is more of a metaphorical nightmare where there is very little funny or fantastic. Perhaps this is to adapt the story was called, in fact, David Magee, former writer of Neverland, where aspects fantastic movie and real life mix continuously.
