definitely an enjoyable film !! its sugar, spice, n everything nice. haha. not in a Powerpuff Girls way though. but it did include these flavors alright. in its food, as well as the scenes, the friendship, the love ~~ Paris is a romantic city after all .. in relate to Paris, i found out that it is often nicknamed as 'The City of Light' (La Ville-lumière). don't you just love how French makes their vocabs sound so sexy n delicious? Rémy lives in Paris - where all good food lies. he is determine to be a chef. with the help of a human friend - Linguini - he succeeded. Linguini lacked of cooking abilities, yet struggled to keep his job at the restaurant. it turned out to be a win-win situation. the focused conflict lies in "restaurants are not suppose to have rats" versus "the chef is in fact a rat".
