Ratatoullie reminds me of ….


Of the movies I’ve watched, The Pixar movie Ratatoullie, has so many heart warming messages to give us. It just reminds us of what we are and how inappropriately we come into conclusions. It talks about expectations and how some simple or small things (be it people, events or items) can break your perceptions. The very scene (When Ego takes a bite of the dish Ratatoullie) tells us how certain simple events can convey emotions so poignant that even words cannot excel.

The Critic-Ego’s review has a remark that should be cherished by all:

“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 judgement. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. 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. But there are times when a critic truly risks something… and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night I experienced something new, an extraordinary meal from an singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking, is a gross understatement– they have rocked me to my core.  In the past I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau’s famous motto: “Anyone Can Cook”. But I realize only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau’s, who is, in this critic’s opinion, nothing less than the finest Chef in France.  I will be returning to Gusteau’s soon, hungry for more.”

This movie can be called as very simple one with a complex message or else we also could say this movie is complex in its simplicity.

I just love the movie.. I’ve watched it many times over.. Though in this movie, the main course lacks luster but in the end, the dessert (the review above) fulfills your appetite completely.
