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.

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
