    "You get to see Paris in three different time periods! What's better than that? In all seriousness, the film gorgoeusly presents Paris in all the time periods it uses: from the stylishly modern to the artsy 20s. If you love Paris, you gotta see this!"

    "One of my favorite French films even though I do think it's a bit overhyped ahaha! Even though it focuses on Amelie more than Paris, I still feel like I visited the city whenever I watch this movie."

    "Leave it to Pixar to make sucha a weird premise work. Ratatouille is the story of a rat in Paris who wants to be a chef. It has a lot of heart and emotions and the animation of the city and the food is to die for!"
