Life of Pi, by Ang Lee

Based on Jan Martel’s book Life of Pi, Ang Lee composes a fantastic film about friendship and the relationship between the human being and nature. Life of Pi doesn’t have great actors –well, Gerard Depardieu, but he appears just a minute- but the film doesn’t need them because it’s directed by one of the best current filmmakers: Ang Lee. He can make a film about two cowboys or whatever he wants and he will make a very interesting film about everything. His personal sight and his shoots are always different, and that is a very strange talent today. There are just a few directors who have ‘the personal touch’. You can watch a film by Tarantino and you know you are indeed watching a Tarantino’s film. You can like it or not, but there’s no doubt the film is his.

With Ang Lee it’s more or less the same. Watching the poetic images in Life of Pi we know we are inside a new world of poetry, feelings, an oriental world of animism, fantasy and, overall, talent and visual poetry. And no, Life of Pi is not just a series of pretty pictures to overwhelm spectators, Life of Pi is also a reflection about human condition, an open dialogue about fantasy, fiction and the strange and fascinating relationship between reality and dreams.

I don’t want to talk about the plot of Life of Pi. I just want to say: there is a very intelligent boy and there is a Bengal tiger. The rest of the film is about… well, I prefer you watch this fantastic, magnificent and incredible movie. I promise you won’t regret it!

For me, Life of Pi is not only the film of this year, it’s the best movie I have seen in years, many years. Congratulations, Mr. Lee. You are indeed a genius.
