Life of Pi or how to survive a tiger, a shipwreck and yourself?

Life of Pi movie

The movie Life of Pi is a journey to the heart, a fabulous journey of initiation, based on Yann Martel’s 2001 novel of the same name and a firm candidate for Oscars 2013.

Review by Isabel del Rio.

Life of Pi is a 2012 American adventure drama movie directed by Ang Lee and it is based on an adapted screenplay by David Magee. Visual effects are by Rhythm & Hues Studios and it is starring by Irrfan Khan, Gérard Depardieu, Tabu, Suraj Sharma, and Adil Hussain. Fantastic team!

There are few film directors so unclassifiable as Ang Lee, always making a different movie. He has already directed Brokeback Mountain, Hulk, Tiger and Dragon, or Sense and Sensibility. No relation among them, no relation with Life of Pi.

Technically, Ang Lee is a master and Life of Pi is his first 3D movie with more than a amazing photography. A surprising movie that deserves success and rewards.

Pi is Pi Patel, a young boy who has to emigrate by economic reasons from India to North America. His family has a circus with very many animals. They travel on a Japanese ship with their animals on board: a kind of Noe’s Ark.

However, Pi’s Ark will be wrecked soon and Pi will have to survive in a little boat accompanied by a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a tiger.

Symbolic and poetic, I love Life of Pi.

On 28 September 2012, Life of Pi had its worldwide premiere at the opening film of the 50th New York Film Festival in both Walter Reade Theater and Alice Tully Hall. The critics were absolutely positive and the box office is being spectacular: the movie has earned about $49 million and during its opening on the extended Thanksgiving weekend, it grossed an estimated $30 million in Canada and the United States.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
