Remy is a rat that has an exquisite sense of smell and taste, he enjoys watching cooking shows and wishes that he could access the forbidden kitchen area instead of the garbage cans. When he gets separated from his colony of rats, he ends up in Paris right underneath the famous restaurant "Gusteau's". Remy meets Linguini, a young man that has no clue about cooking and that works moping the floors and taking the garbage out. Between them an interesting relationship is created and Remy uses Linguini's body to create outstanding dishes.
Of course, I will not tell you what happens but I have to say that what I liked the most about the movie is how beautiful it looks, the rat's hairs are perfect. You can see how the onions' layers look, how the water boils while is cooking, and it all looks perfect.
The story is cute, nice and with the endless message of "follow your dreams", but I did have a problem mixing rats and food, I have to say that although the dishes might look great on screen I was not hungry at all once I came out of the theatre just imagining the fact that a rat's little paws were anywhere near the food. I guess I couldn't take the image out of head of that New York's "Taco Bell" infested in rats.
