From the multi award-winning director and film maker Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, Sense and Sensibility) comes a magical and epic film about the tragic and extraordinary life of Pi Patel. Pi was given the names 'Piscine Molitor' by his respected uncle whom he referred to as Mamaji, a famous Indian swimmer, who named him after the famed art deco swimming pool complex next to the Bois de Boulogne Park in Paris. The Piscine Molitor swimming pool was built in the late 1920's and opened by amongst others the famous Johnny Weissmuller. This pool was also where Louis Réard introduced and popularised the bikini. Now sadly closed and vandalised by graffiti artists and the like, the Piscine Molitor remains a landmark historical monument in Paris.
