Just watched Ratatouille last night. The detailed and realistic renderings just took my breath away! My goodness, just notice the fur of the rat, the rain, the water and all the details of the textures of the ground, the wall and everything else, you will be amazed. Pixar did it again by producing another quality animation. This brings another level of realism after what Toy Story and Finding Nemo could do.

The 'Anyone Can Cook' slogan is the main theme of the movie. A rat which desires good food as well as having the passion to learn to cook dreams of becoming a chef. He constant sneaked into a granny's house to read the cookbook of the famous chef, Gusteau as well as watching his cooking program on TV. He, Remy, had his opportunity when a young boy came to the Gusteau's French restaurant to work. Remy helped the boy, Linguini to cook by pulling his hair as a way to give instructions to cook. I won't reveal much here as not to give spoilers. The rest of the story is about how they could sustain such a relationship as we know that rats are not allowed in the kitchen as they are dirty. I fully recommend this movie!

By the way, ratatouille is a French vegetable stew, usually made with eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and onions, seasoned with herbs and garlic.
