It’s funny because it is something that we have seen for a long time. But in this case, the rat was more important than the chef. This is one of those movies that has a bit of everything. The story of the rat and his efforts to win over the heart of a gourmet chef were once the stuff of children’s stories.
The little rat offers to help the chef, and at first it looks like there is a lot of luck involved – he helps in ways that make him look great. And after all his efforts we don’t find out how this really intended to help save the restaurant. The message I think here is not so much about winning over one particular person as trying our best and having faith in ourselves. This movie has lots of lessons for people who are forgotten.
Ratatouille Movie Meaning
The film follows the story of a young rat named Remy, who dreams of becoming a great chef. After finding himself at Gusteau’s restaurant kitchen and in charge of the garbage disposal, he quickly discovers that his food is more flavorful than anything Gusteau could produce.
Upon the advice of a chef named Auguste Gusteau, Remy decides to turn from garbage disposal and attempt his own cooking ventures in order to make it big as a great chef – though this proves difficult after causing mayhem on the first day at work when he discovers that none of Gustoaus’s recipes will peel correctly (bringing us back around again).
At one point Remy gets caught up with his current girlfriend Lingu ini, who was the very first bite Gusteau ever tried (remembering back to his earlier experience) – though she wouldn’t be satisfied with only one.
As Remy works towards this goal he discovers that a lot of people don’t seem to like him or believe in what he is doing at all and it doesn’t help when there are also multiple updates running on how poorly everything is going for Rabe’s creations. The rat finds himself facing multiple difficulties and it isn’t until he finds Gusteau’s original recipes that the rat finally receives all the help he needs to properly prove the end result, (remembering back again) which yields large success.
This small French Movie is a great introspective look at what makes people successful in life. The heart here seems much deeper than professional accomplishments or even any kind of monetary gain – this film comes dangerously close to depicting pure soul searching as the main drive behind success. When this concept is embedded into a movie that is based off of alchemy and explores the nature of how exactly food can give you life it makes for an intriguing film. The concept reemerges in animation form later on as Gonzo and his girlfriend Suzy discuss what her hot dog said to him after he turned them down – “I think I’ve learned my lesson.”
This idea, when applied at its most fundamental level, is the existential experience that this film was truly attempting to depict. There are sections where Rabe makes hay as far as spiritual commentary; however at its core there isn’t much more beyond a simple survival quest with some playful philosophical passages thrown in.
It’s just not deep enough for me personally – mainly due to Remy and Linguadi being lightly drawn characters who seem far too fragile (perhaps showing this in allegory) towards Guste au’s offspring – just one small misstep on their part can change their lives forever. Even after seeing the film twice I still have a big problem imagining someone with any kind of overbearing fortitude looking at Linguadi and Remy.
More to know
Despite those minor issues, Gusteau is oddly enough made into this kind of cynical messiah figure in his own canon (where he was meant to be prideful), which makes sense but seems off from its source material: a movie about food.
He’s never shown to have any sort of real power over anything; he only exists because this little kid sees him as some kind of Father figure (like when the boy tells his Dad that “Gusteau taught me well”). It seems like the final scene where Linguadi, who was just an unwitting pawn all along, becomes elevated from being merely Gusteau’s student into someone with actual magic.
Ratatouille Movie Ending
This is more of a personal artistic choice than my natural ranking, but many have noted this as one of the most ingenious movie endings in history. In just over 90 seconds it gives truly dramatic insight into The Ending’s meaning, while also completely subverting audience expectations by having Remy become such a powerful symbol that he can do virtually anything at all (including apparently perform miraculous feats in front of the creator ). It seems to strike the balance between being a relatable, realistic movie ending and one that is truly life changing.
Having said all of this, I have seen this scene many times before in a very different light:
The above image was used on zeeeyules’ blog post about how fantastic it is (which has since been updated with others like mine featuring incredibly condescending fan commentary). This could technically be considered artistic rather than personal. :^) I declare this the official Movie Ending ™.
Ratatouille was nominated for 5 Oscars at 2008 Academy Awards. It won in 2 categories: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“When You’re Gone”)
Is It Worth Watching?
Ratatouille is one of Pixar’s BEST movies! The animation, the writing and acting ,and everything about it is just incredible. I love this movie a lot ! But The characters are shallow and don’t develop as we would expect them to, the plot is pretty bland for only an hour and 30 minutes… And then goes completely off track after that.
I must say that the food stuff was a bit good though! So yeah, for those who find subtle cheese in every cartoon movie make sure you check this one out . To tell if a film is really good. Look at the list of 2003 movies and see which ones you think are good. New York Times has a poll on it . Every single one is listed as either Not So Good or Mediocre , except for ratatouille! But why? If this movie was truly mediocre, but seemed so because no one had heard about it before 2005 when I saw it. Then why did people from 2004 say well its really good.
Personally, I think Ratatouille is a really great film. Not every detail of it is perfect and possible onto all audiences/people, but for someone who had not talked about animated movies whatsoever before 2005’s Best Animated Feature-award ceremony thingy? It won over the likes of Monsters Inc., Princess Mononoke, Finding Nemo etc…I still don’t know how that could be so.
