Life of Pi

Siberian Tiger – Original Painting by   Jason Morgan

I am looking forward to seeing this movie “The Life of Pi” which starts screening in Australia on 1 January 2013.  It is based upon a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel, basically about a teenaged boy, with great knowledge about animals, finding himself stranded at sea with a Bengal tiger – and embarks upon a mystical adventure. The book would be good to read too, I think.

If you have seen this movie, please don’t discuss the story-line / theme here, because this post is just to flag that I WILL be seeing it, and am excited about doing so.  I recommend others see it, even though I haven’t yet.   It is directed by Ang Lee, whom also directed one of my favourite movies, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”.   The official film site can be found    here.

As well as the harbour, the surrounding pubs, shops and houses are decorated and the illuminations extend up the road leading out of Mousehole to the South.
