Ten years later, 'Ratatouille' remains a striking allegory of art and class
So, when you strip away all the cartoon elements, at its core Ratatouille is the story of an economically and socially disadvantaged person discovering art—in this case the culinary arts—and attempting to find an avenue through which to express his inspiration. Within his own society, survival is seen as much more important than frivolous pursuits of sensory delight, so he has to make his way in a more affluent society to bring his dreams to life, despite how despised he is in those circles. If this isn’t a clear allegory for how the underprivileged are so often denied access to artistic expression, I’m not sure what is.
