Lullaby for Pi
Sunday 2 January 2011, by
Can a humming through a closed bathroom door really heal two broken hearts? Can it erase the sound of a phone that won’t ring and the words of a diary written day after day on the same walls, only to disappear once again the next day?
Lullaby for Pi is a tale, a fairy tale, with the marvellous Forest Whitaker as the fairy godmother of two distressed and disturbed lovers, displaying just the right amount of charm, humour and perkiness.
As in any fairy tale, music is all around as the main story centres on characters whose voices have been lost and who can only find them by interacting with each other. From this lullaby through a wooden door to very powerful concert scenes, Jazz, blues or rap become a beacon of hope and magic in our modern world.
