What makes Ratatouille such a hilarious and heartfelt wonder is the way Bird contrives to let it sneak up on you. A nearly flawless piece of popular art, as well as one of the most persuasive portraits of an artist ever committed to film. It provides the kind of deep, transporting pleasure, at once simple and sophisticated, that movies at their best have always promised.
