‘Ratatouille’ is a movie about a rat who wants to pursue his dreams of cooking for anyone. He has a passion and tries desperately to make his dream a reality. This dream is to work for Gusteau’s restaurant and Gusteau himself is alongside Remy, the main character, through this journey. Although this dream is very inspiring and passion-filled, there are many obstacles on the way that make this journey nearly impossible. Family and physical expectations take a hit on Remy’s dream and discourage him from being the best he can be. This movie is about proving everyone wrong and standing up to those who doubt one’s success. This movie also shows that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible.

Inspiration is the theme that means a lot to me personally because it is something I struggle with the most. I admire people, and in this case Remy for having the inspiration that always amazes me, even though he is a fictional character. In life, I feel that I am not inspired a lot to do many things, and it messes me up in the end. Writing this paper right now is hard because my motivation and inspiration are dwindling as the semester progresses and it has been hard to stay focused. I can attribute most of my inspiration to music. As Remy likes to cook, I like to play and listen to music. Music gave me the stability and balance when there was none, and this the reason why I have an inspiration for music. I know it is not the career path that I have chosen, but I have always kept it close in life. My enjoyment for it has never gone away and I am still inspired to practice my instruments and be the best musician I can be. It has shown me time and time again, that if I work hard, I will achieve anything. Music has given me the strength to express myself in ways in which I never felt possible, and for that I am forever grateful. I resemble Remy in this way, and I feel a deep connection when he talks about his love for cooking because I feel that for music. An example of inspiration through ‘Ratatouille’ is: “Good food is like music you can taste, color you can smell” (Gehlot, 1). This quote had music in it which was interesting to me because I feel that way about making music, the colors of music remind of good food at a restaurant, combining flavors to make an excellent product. This was one of the pointers that Gusteau tells Remy as to how to be a great chef. At this point in the movie, Remy was just starting out with Linguini and discovering all of the hidden secrets of food. Remy never experienced good quality food until this moment. Inspiration holds high to me every day and will always be a constant battle, but I know that I can do it, even if it seems impossible, just like Remy.

With inspiration, there needs to be people, or rats in this case, who support along the way and Gusteau helps Remy with that to get the traction he needs to be a good cook; however, societal norms and expectations get the best of him, and even his family does not support his extravagant dream of being a chef. Remy’s family took an extremely superficial approach to food, and needed to see for themselves why Remy was so infatuated. An example of this: “Remy, a rat, is told one phrase more than any other when he discusses his dreams with fellow rats: ‘We’re rats. We don’t cook, we steal’” (Jain, 1). This was told to Remy many times throughout the movie by his family members and was never taking him seriously. This made Remy feel alone and afraid for what he was becoming, but he could not stop himself and succumb to societal and familial norms. He had to follow his dreams and luckily someone extremely important came at the right time. Linguini was what he needed, a face to the art that was forbidden for Remy. An example that represents their relationship is: “Remy and Linguini form the most improbable partnership – with Linguini’s clumsy body channeling Remy’s creative brains – that will turn Paris upside down, leading them both on an incredible journey of comical twists, emotional turns and the most unlikely of triumphs, which they could never have imagined without each other” (Pixar Talk, 1). Their relationship, like many other Pixar film relationships, were unconventional and seemed ludicrous, but they make it work and were successful until they were busted. In my life, relationships work exactly like that, unknown that they would be this successful and very sporadic. Currently I have a friend that I met online originally but managed to meet up because of where we live. They only live about two hours away and I consider them to be one of the best friends I have had in my life. I trust them more than a lot of people in my life right now and it does not seem right. How can someone I know for only a few years online, be one of the best people I have ever met? It is a strange question indeed, but we just click. Our personalities are very different, yet some of our interests are the same, and that is what binds us together. Even more strange is that I met them through playing the same video game, which blows my mind to this day, because I thought that no one played it. Not many of my school friends at the time played it and I was keeping it a secret, but it felt good to not be alone. I never had many friends in my life because I treat people the same, except for my family of course, but I see friendship in a deeper way and loyalty is especially important to me. I want to emotional connect to someone and not be bogged down with the superficial, and I will always have that standard. Although it does not help me make friends, the ones that I do make, are more worth it.

Having relationships is important, but if one does is not being who they truly are, then a relationship will not work. Believing in oneself is crucial to being who you are because if one does not believe in themselves, then how can they be their best selves to others. Remy had to believe in himself to get Linguini to let him cook. An example of how Remy did this was: “On the banks of the Seine, trapped in a glass jar, Remy wordlessly entreats Linguini to save him. Slowly the young man realizes that the rat understands what he’s saying. He asks Remy if he can cook. The way in which the rat responds – with a shrug and a look of sheepish but unmistakable pride in his abilities – cements the emotional core of the picture” (Phillips, 1). To gain the best opportunities in life and to reach maximum potential we have to take risks. This was hard for me because I never used to like taking risks, but the more opportunities I lost because of the fact that I was not being myself, the more frustrated I got and the more inspired I became to change. In my freshman year of high school, I almost did not take an honors English course because I did not think I was ready. Although I got a call from school telling me otherwise, and my parents believing in me all the way, I was not so sure. I ultimately took the class, and even though it was extremely hard, I did okay in the class and faced my fear of looking dumb. Another instance in my life which I hold to me is getting diagnosed with autism. No one expected me to survive in a normal school environment without the full aid of the special education program. After one year, however, that changed, and I was in the normal classes that all the other kids were in. Even though it was a horrible transition, I got through it and am proud of myself for it. Another example that I feel strongly attached to is: “The message given is that with teamwork, support, and a good understanding of one another anyone can work together and create something wonderful” (Tom, 1). Of course, with all the help I received over the years I was able to be successful, but without being myself and putting out the best effort that I could, it would not have succeeded. People in my life, fortunately, saw something in me that I did not see in myself for a majority of my life, but now I can see it and it shows. I have been more forgiving and helpful to others and I can thoroughly figure our problems and situations that arise. Next semester, I am going to be an RA, which takes an immense amount of responsibility and was given to me through an interview. Without being myself in the process, I would not have been able to get this job. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given, and I recognize that without being myself, none of it would be possible.

‘Ratatouille’ teaches the viewers that the sky is the limit, we just need to see it and achieve it. The film takes a proactive view on life and shows that we should all strive for our dreams. This movie resonated with me a lot because it felt good to see beings achieve their dreams through hard work and dedication. It has this unconventional wisdom and always inspires me to be the best I could be. I have learned a lot through this film and I never thought that I would be writing about it. My connection to Remy has never gone away, I see myself in him in a plethora of ways, and it makes me feel good about myself because he is a great character. He has the inspiration to succeed, those who doubt him but see him being successful, and those who give him a chance of a lifetime, to prove why he is a great cook. Gusteau gave him all the tools to succeed, and Remy ran with it and proved everyone wrong. He changed the way that people and rats alike, see the world.
