The film first catches my eye by showing all different kinds of animals. The kinds of animals we can only see in zoos. Also, gardens full of magnificent flowers catch my eye. And the peaceful music the film is playing makes me think the film is going to stay that way. The Life of Pi tells an amazing story of life, loss and survival.
Pi Patel lives in Canada, but is from India. Pi has a reporter at his house asking about Pi’s incredible story of being on a life for 227 days. Pi grows up with his mother’s religion, which is Hinduism. Later, when Pi is around 12 he is introduced to Christianity then Islam. Pi follows all three religions but Pi’s father doesn’t like religion and says Pi cannot three religions at the same time. Also, Pi’s bother listens to his dad in the religion area.
When Pi is seventeen Pi’s father decides to sell the zoo his father owns and move to Canada. So, Pi’s father buys passage for Pi and his family. Also, Pi’s father bought passage for all the zoo animals so he can sell the animals in Canada. But on the trip to Canada a big unexpected storm comes and sinks the ship. Because Pi wanted to look at the storm he ends up being able to jump on a lifeboat. However, none of pi’s family made it on the lifeboat.
Pi is now trapped on a lifeboat with a zebra. During the storm, Pi throws a life persevere out into the ocean thinking he is saving a person. However, what Pi pulled in was an adult Bengal tiger. Also, pi has a monkey and a hyena on the lifeboat with him. Yet all the animals except the Bengal tiger die. Pi has very little food and water on the lifeboat. But Pi has to learn how to survive with nothing but a hungry and scared Bengal tiger. Somehow Pi survives the tragic loss of his family and being out on the open ocean for so long with no one.

But then, he finds it in himself to keep pushing on. Pi’s journey also tests his faith and strengths Pi’s faith.
