The Life of Pi by Yann Martel is one of my favourite books. Generally, film adaptations don’t make my happy gauge start pinging. When I heard the first whisperings of this movie, excitement was not the word you would use to describe my reaction. It seemed (and still seems) that it is a story that is impossible to tell visuall. That said, Martel’s own attitude towards it seems to be positive, and the cinematography and production looks amazingly good. I’m looking forward to this.
