Second movie in a week at a hall. This is a record for me because though a movie watcher I am not much of a hall-visitor. “Life of Pie” was worth the trouble.
Pie and a tiger are the only survivors of a huge ship wreck in the Pacific. Though from its title it might seem like the movie is about the entire life of a person called Pie, well, it does not cover that long a period of time except on how he manages to not be eaten by the tiger and live. But perhaps it makes sense when we look at the event as that which changed Pie’s life forever.
Somewhere in the movie Pie says that should it always mean something? Maybe maybe not. So is the movie’s message. I do not find any lesson from the movie except this, and for the first time I’m satisfied by it.
