“When you suffered a great deal in life, each additional pain is both unbearable and trifling…” – Yann Martel
As I was browsing through what movie could I watch over the weekend. I came across this movie “Life of Pi”. It puzzled me for a moment what this movie is all about, I don’t want to put my money into waste so I thought of checking its synopsis and check what is it all about.
The film was based on a novel by Yann Martel and was directed by Ang Lee, a well known director of movies Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Hulk; so this should be good. As I watched its trailer, a saw the sense of the movie so I decided to go for it.
The movie is actually all about the teen-agers post shipwreck life losing his family from a thunderstorm and his quest for survival. And the dillema, he has to live with a full grown Bengal Tiger!
For 227 days, he managed to live in an environment like that…. I couldn’t just imagine myself if I was in his position. Maybe I’ll do the same but I am not entirely sure if my sanity will keep me alive.
The movie itself has thought me to thank life even more. I am totally humbled for most of the time complained about my ordeal, about how things that don’t work according to my will. How torn my pair of shoes are and not seeing the man who doesn’t even have feet. I also appreciate life’s wisdom shared in the movie and the way it teaches us to hope, and hope even more but do something about it.
These are just few of my favorites quote from the movie:
I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.
If every unfolding we experience takes us further along in life, then, we are truly experiencing what life is offering.
Above all… it is important not to lose hope…
Check out also the trailer of the movie:
If you’re into a movie about life, this is for you.
What next for me? Maybe I should read the book…
