Ratatouille

Ratatouille

Remy the rat is blessed – and cursed – with a refined palatte in the latest from Pixar Animation ('Toy Story', 'Finding Nemo'). Not content to eat garbage with his fellow rodents, he sneaks into the best restaurants each night for un petit degustation.

Misunderstood by his father and his peers, Remy is further thwarted in his life's ambition: to become a master chef in his own right.

This is from Brad Bird, the best director of animation, responsible for the excellent 'The Incredibles' and 'The Iron Giant'.

Ratatouille

Great movie, lots of laughs, now I know why we keep rats.

My lovely girlfriend and I just saw this. I had a stupid grin on my face for much of the movie and enjoyed every minute immensely. There were no slow sections and the last quarter (and conclusion of the movie) was unexpected and probably the highlight of the whole picture. A quick review is a good one. Suffice to say, 5 stars and well worth a trip...

Ratatouille is delicious. In this satisfying, souffle-light tale of a plucky French rodent with a passion for cooking, the master chefs at Pixar have blended all the right ingredients -- abundant verbal and visual wit, genius slapstick timing, a soupcon of Gallic sophistication -- to produce a warm and irresistible concoction that's sure to appeal to everyone's inner Julia Child...

What makes Ratatouille such a hilarious and heartfelt wonder is the way Bird contrives to let it sneak up on you...

The slapstick-comic set pieces involving Remy and Linguini's cooking struggles might solicit the admiration of Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati...

While other animations such as Shrek 3 have relied on pop culture gags or cute animal jokes... director Brad Bird has created a film with the whole package: a beautiful animation and sets, interesting characters, a considered script...

Ratatouille is as audacious as they come. It takes risks and goes places other films wouldn't dare, and it ends up putting rival imaginations in the shade...

Brad Bird, the director who brought us The Incredibles and The Iron Giant, has another exquisitely crafted hit on his hands. It's got a message, about following your dreams and not letting prejudice stand in your way, however the point's not laboured or allowed to get too cloying. There are more layers of meaning too, if you care to look for them in this breezily entertaining yet complex film...
