185 Quiz Answer


“Life of Pi” is a motion picture about an Indian boy named Piscine Molitor Patel, known as “Pi” (who was named after a Paris swimming pool, a piscine).  Pi survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
(Also for Three Word Wednesday and ABC Wednesday: "I" is for "incredible.")

Here’s this week’s Berownial quiz question, short and sweet. 
Well, short anyway.

In a famous film Mr. Parker, who is dangerous - dangerous enough to make you cringe - co-stars with a kid named after a swimming-pool.  Their incredible relationship blossoms, in a way, as they commit one blunder after another while trying to survive after a shipwreck..

But I digress - what’s the name of the film?

Is it "The Life of Pi"? Mr.Parker is a dangerous character because he's a Bengal tiger. The 'swimming pool' is a youngster called "Piscine" Wonderful stuff.
