In the words of famous food critic Anton Ego.
”In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment… But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.”
‘Ratatouille’ is Pixar’s little hidden gem, or hidden ingredient, to its long line of astounding productions and stories. The film concurs up a story about a little rat named Remy, who dreams about cooking delicious and imaginative creations through his love and passion for food. But when he gets separated by his family, he washes up in the sewers, only to discover he has been living in Paris this whole time.
The city of food and love.
A garbage boy named Linguini accidentally ruins a soup, but it is up to Remy to fix the soup, which result in an odd friendship between human and rat.
The film is a hilarious, yet drama-filled story, about following your heart, even if you are a rat. The two’s friendship between Remy and Linguini shouldn’t work, but strangely, it’s this weird combination that makes it work, both learning about the meaning of friendship and embracing their talent, even though Linguini can’t understand a word Remy says.
‘Ratatouille’ is a fine example of modern cinema that delivers and makes you hungry for more.
“Anyone can cook”.
