All At Sea With Richard Parker

I have just finished watching the Life of Pi and I have to say what a brilliant film it is. How the computer people can come up with CGI graphics of that quality is beyond me. In fact, it was quite distracting to begin with because I kept looking for ways of catching them out – looking for some kind of blemish in their work which would give away the fact it was not a real tiger. I could find none. This did not spoil the film for me but the film itself has left me with a feeling of wanting to know more. What did the author of the book, Yann Martel, or the director of the film, Ang Lee, mean with the ending of the story? Is there more to it than you originally think and what of the religious overtones?
