Ratatouille – My favorite animated movie
Great story, nice almost life-like animation, I felt hungry after watching it.
Remy is a rat who loves to cook and dreams of becoming a chef like his idol, Gusteau. He befriends Linguini, a garbage boy, who doesn’t know anything about cooking. Together they rebuild the restaurant that the late chef Gusteau once owned.
“Anyone can cook” says Gusteau, the best chef in France. It’s like saying anyone can reach for their dreams, no matter how small you think you are. In the movie, a rat became a chef, which is an irony. Rats are lowly animals who thrive in dirty places. But it’s the rat who creates amazing dishes in this movie.
What’s also commendable is the great animation, as in really great. The lighting is bright, the details, the food… it’s just definitely one of the best animations I’ve ever seen.
It makes me dream of Paris and eat in a restaurant after. I think it’s one of Pixar’s greatest animated films.
