Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This is one of the featurettes on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of Ratatouille. It consists of interviews, candid footage and clips of the film. The main ingredient here is professional master of the kitchen Thomas Keller, and director of the flick, Brad Bird talking about their passion, cooking and making animated movies, respectively. They are quite inspiring to listen to, and have plenty of gold to offer. You understand completely why they feel the way they do about their work, and I wouldn't rule out that this may very well lead many viewers to discover their inner chef or film-maker. This is edited together so that there is a clear connection between what the two people say, independently of each other. It's fun to hear the two of them talk about experimentation and the improvisation that they engage in, and it is acknowledged that both fields require planning as well as an immense attention to detail. The running time of 13 minutes is fitting, and this is not boring for a second. There is not a single offensive thing in this. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject. 7/10
