Recently, celebrated actor Peter O'Toole died at the age of 81. Over the years, O'Toole gave many great performances in many classic films. One of his most memorable performances was in "Ratatouille," an animated film released in 2007.

In "Ratatouille," the main character is Remy (voiced by Patton Oswalt), a benevolent rat who loves food and cooking. The rest of his less discriminating family eats garbage, a diet too severe for Remy. One day, the foodie-rodent gets separated from his family and ends up in the kitchen of a restaurant, where he meets a naïve young employee, Linguini. They become partners when Remy learns he can control Linguini be pulling his hair, and they end up making a lot of great food at the restaurant, which helps it become popular. This draws the attention of Anton Ego (voiced by O'Toole), a jaded food critic.

The voice-acting in "Ratatouille" is first-rate. Patton Oswalt makes Remy a character the audience can root for. Peter O'Toole is excellent. He makes Anton scary at first, but we learn he is more complex as the story moves on.

The animation is great. Much of the film is set in Paris, which looks amazing. Also, the character designs are very well done, especially Anton, who dresses in black and is very thin.

"Ratatouille" is a great animated film that features one of Peter O'Toole's best performances.
