    We saw the 3D version. Best use of 3D I have seen.

    Recommended for the spiritually minded (book or movie).

    I won't try to hammer home the spiritual points I saw in this movie.

    See what you find. Or what you prefer to see.

    Also the movie is a visual and aural treat. And, after a leisurely start, lots of action!

    From the brief blurbs on the movie, it sounded like they were going to leave out the part where the orangutan and zebra with the broken leg and all were going to be left out and it was going to just be PI and Richard the tiger hearted...

    It did get a bit science fictiony with the living island and all.

    Great book I thought. Wife in hospital so can't see the movie for a while. Hope it still is out when we can go.

    It's rated PG here. Parental guidance. IMDB says: "PG for emotional thematic content throughout, and some scary action sequences and peril." Basically, what happens in the book happens on screen.

    In what sense is it spiritual, if I may be permitted to ask?

    To answer would be a spoiler. I imagine you can find answers on the internet, but read kellyjay's reply above, it's relevant. Actually I put a clue in my OP and am glad if it is too well hidden. But I suggest you refrain from looking further for clues. It might be more rewarding to discover it in the movie.

    The book was fantastic - though I must admit I didnt understand all of it.
    The living island was ...weird ... what was that symbolic of ? Any thoughts?

    Probably wont see the movie as I cant believe it will match up to the book.

    This is the problem of books made into movies -- our imaginations make characters and events real in a way that is unique to us, and once we have our imagination of it, nothing can live up to it. But I believe it matches up to the book.

    It definitely was an amazing, could not put down till finished book. I was wondering about that living island scene myself. Maybe an indication the writer was hinting Pi was suffering from hallucinations?
