With Ratatouille Pixar studios and director Brad Bird churned out yet another original, witty and delicious animated picture. The motif, “everyone can cook,” inspired Remy, a little rat who has a good taste, to make his own dishes instead of eating garbage food like the rest of his family. Since rats are forbidden from the kitchen, he teams up with Linguini, the garbage boy, to execute his recipe in an ingenious, amusing technique: hiding inside the boy’s white hat and pulling his hair like a puppeteer. The most dazzling moment is when dozens of rats in the kitchen not eating but preparing the food. So the next time you see roaches and rats near the pots and pans, kill the roaches not the rats, especially if they look as cute and clean as what Pixar has rendered them.
