what the others say
"To produce a coherent film from Martel's tricky novel would be achievement enough, but Ang Lee has extracted something beautiful, wise and, at times, miraculous."
"Flawed, yes, but marvellously ambitious, and unforgettably gorgeous to look at."
"Ang Lee has, for the most part, constructed such a wondrous piece of filmmaking that even the 3D works."
