Mother's Day Tribute From a Rat

There's a wonderful tribute to mothers in the Pixar movie Ratatouille. Yes, it's a movie about how a rat realizes his dream to become a chef. But I'm thinking about the scene in which the vile and hate-filled food critic Anton Ego takes his first taste of the simple peasant dish ratatouille. He experiences a flashback to a boyhood memory of his mother serving him ratatouille and then returns a changed man.

It's an amazingly powerful scene, and an ode to all mothers. Watch it for yourself...

Oh yes, I remember that scene. It was a cute movie. I didn't think I'd enjoy it, but I did :)
