"The Life Of Pi" :)

This afternoon I decided to pick my youngest daughter Lauren up and we had a ‘girly’ afternoon at the Cineworld cinema.
We went to watch the fabulous 3D film ‘Life of Pie’.

The film tells the story of Piscine' Pi' Patel. He changes his name from Piscine to just Pi because he was taunted by the other school children.

Pi and his family grow up in India and he is the son of a zoo keeper. His family decide to move to Canada. Enroute to Canada their freighter sinks and Pi finds himself a castaway. He is adrift on a lifeboat and is accompanied by a Bengal Tiger, an Orangutan, a Hyena and a Zebra. All five are fighting for survival but very soon Pi finds that his only surviving companion is the Bengal Tiger. Yes, now picture this!  The Bengal Tiger is actually a female...she is me. I’m the Tiger. ;)  Oh yes and I’m stranded on a lifeboat with Johnny Depp. Grooooowl!!! :o)
The film was directed by Ang Lee. The special effects in the film were just marvellous and it really was a beautiful film which was just filled with such a lot of beautiful colours. The sea scenes in particular were just magnificent. J

I laughed out load as I am presuming the Tiger had a bit of Scots in her...when she did a wee puddle on was hilarious to say the least. ;)
After Pi was finally rescued he eventually told his story, only folk found it hard to believe that he was adrift on a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal Tiger. The only way which he could persuade folk to believe him was by telling the same story but replacing the animals with actual people. It seemed to work. :)

There are a number of good films out at the cinema presently...I won't be a total spoiler, however if you haven’t yet seen this film then it is a must. I loved it. :)
