Delicious. No other word.

I saw Disney-Pixar's Ratatouille yesterday morning and I can safely say that its rave reviews (96% critics average on Rotten Tomatoes) are thoroughly deserved. Breathtaking animation, eye popping set pieces and laugh-out-loud humour are souffled into a funny, thoughtful, moving and, most importantly, entertaining movie.

And what a great, dare I say it, inspiring (and inspired) message: Remy, the sophisticated rat who wants to be a chef, is a deceptively simple stand-in for every dreamer and artist out there. Some of us are in the gutter - literally in Remy's case- but we truly are looking at the stars. I'm man enough to admit, I even cried during it.

In terms of what cinema is capable of doing, and what it should do, this is as close to perfection as you could hope to get.
