Pi spends most of the movie without a shirt, although it is nothing sexual. He is stuck on a raft in the middle of the ocean under a hot sun by the way.
Pi is momentarily distracted by some girls (one in particular) doing a ritual dance to the Hindu gods. It’s implied he begins to date one of them, we see them sitting and talking together at different points of the movie.
Pi urinates on the lifeboat to mark his territory (no nudity seen), and Richard Parker (a tiger) retaliates, spraying urine in Pi’s face, his bare backside and genitals briefly seen.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


We doubt all the beauty and refuse to admit the cruelty of reality.

Therefore, people with faith and tigers are easier to be happy than us.

Frankly speaking, before the second story of PI, my viewing mood has been declining. If I have any dissatisfaction with the whole film, it is that the “adventure between me and the tiger on the sea”, as a popular story, is somewhat loose and light. The highly respected 3D impact, and the effect is completely expected. After watching the complete film, I’ve been thinking about how Quentin would shoot the escape at sea if he came to shoot this story. I’m afraid there will be more flying paragraphs such as whipping the tiger and fishing with the tiger. However, since, in addition to the function of pleasing the ordinary audience, the marine adventure is more to show the director’s aesthetic pursuit, it can only sigh that Ang Lee’s dream is too introverted, too clever and full of Oriental neat and quiet.

When PI slowly told the second cook’s version of the story of escape from the sea, it seemed to me that he was awakened by a nightmare bit by bit from a deep sleep. At this time, you found that the previous seemingly empty bedding was not idle writing. Wang Baijie, who eats gravy rice, depatiyo, who does not respect faith, and PI mother, who is devout and tolerant, are seated one by one after boarding the boat with zebras and orangutans. The cruelty of the real story version makes people feel like falling into the abyss. The cruelest cruelty is that you rely on your imagination to restructure one by one and restore yourself. This is much better than the way some movies cry and shed dog blood.

In addition to the simplest role correspondence reduction, looking back, PI is really careful in the text. For example, before the lifeboat fell into the sea, Wang Baijie shouted: “zebra, zebra”. In fact, he is the zebra. And the sentence “your child?”. For example, the cannibal Island, “just” is the shape of a man. For another example, when introducing the three kinds of Hindu Buddhas, he talked about the three sided Buddhas flowing on the river. Everything in the world is just his dream. There is really no better explanation than this sentence to explain how PI built the first story. Everyone is his own God. You can’t control the present, but you can control the memory of the past and the fantasy of the future.

When both stories are in front of you, it’s time to choose to come.

The Japanese refused to believe in the dream of fairy tales, but they were more reluctant to believe in the cruelty of reality. After hesitating for a while, the reporter chose the first dream story, “you followed God”. Pi’s answer gave an ambiguous and clear answer about authenticity.

I chose the second story without hesitation.

The Bengal tiger in the first story is an easy interpretation of Pi’s own side, but it’s too hasty to explain it with animal nature. Pi’s father gave an explanation – you have no feelings with it, and you can only see your own reflection from his eyes. So drifting on the sea is also a story about how PI, a multi religious and vegetarian, gets along with himself. PI has experienced the process of fear, symbiosis, domestication and dependence on tigers. This process is also about the balance between human nature and rationality. Finally, the tiger head did not run back to the jungle – “life is constantly putting down, but sadly, I haven’t had time to say goodbye to you.”—— When people enter the social jungle, why don’t they never forget to look back?

I wonder what Ang Lee’s choice is?

As far as I understand it, I think the tiger is the embodiment of fear. This fear comes from the awe of nature, the challenge of survival, and the resulting inner loneliness. I’m afraid these fears are persistent and desperate. I’m afraid Ang Lee’s choice is to experience him, face him and accept him.

The middle part of the video is to be alone with yourself, but at the beginning and end of the video, PI’s life is accompanied by two things – family and religion. Family and religion, for people, are the best way to escape fear. Religion provides an estimate to explain the world. For individuals, it is always a comfort for us to face the unknown. Family makes us feel responsible, connected and contribute to the world. It proves the value of our existence. These two have given us the courage to face ourselves in terms of birth and accession to the WTO.

When you understand that life and self are not used to overcome, but to get along, you will understand that although some things are unreasonable, you must believe that some things are not firm, but you must rely on. This is not Ang Lee’s choice in the film. I’m afraid it is also Ang Lee’s choice in his life.
