Nu s-a intamplat de multe ori, si daca ma gandesc si mai bine, nu cred ca s-a intamplat vreodata ca, dupa terminarea unui film, sa aplaud. Asa, in cunostinta de cauza si chiar cu pasiune. Pentru ca mi-a placut filmul, si da, am zis „Foarte tare, frate!”.
Cu atat mai putin ma gandeam ca efuziunea asta o sa se intample dupa un film de animatie.
Adica da, e vorba de un sobolan care stie sa gateasca si inca face asta cu foarte mare grija si talent. Pe sobolan il cheama Remy. Probabil intruchiparea acelui Remy, pierdut si el prin Paris, odata, de demult, in cartea lui Hector Malot. Sau probabil ca nu, doar un sobolan care invata si lasa sa fie invatate filozofii de viata ce pentru un film animat is ceva de… pfuai de mine!
Si pentru ca filmul este de vazut, nu mai zic nimic.
Ba nu, zic ce m-a impresionat. Monologul lui Anton Ego (Peter O’Toole) care zice asa si cititi cu atentie, pentru ca, pana la urma, asta gandeam, la randul meu, dupa film:
Anton Ego: In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face is that, in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. Last night, I experienced something new, an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau’s famous motto: Anyone can cook. But I realize that only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau’s, who is, in this critic’s opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau’s soon, hungry for more.

Asadar, Ratatouille!
