Behind the Scenes

One Disney movie that I just love (and have seen about seven times) is Ratatouille. And even though it’s an animated movie you can still find some places from the movie that actually exists for real in Paris. The restaurant where the film takes place, Gusteau, is obviously not real but people say that the story is inspired by the famous restaurant La Tour d’Argent here in the city, which also lost a few stars some years ago, just as the story in the movie.

One place that does exists for real though is the shop window where the dead rats are hanging. The window that Remy’s father showed him (I can’t find a clip…). I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that it was for real! I took the photo from afar so that you won’t get as scared as I got when I saw it the first time.

    Could you tell me the exact address to the shop with the dead rats in the window? My friend loves the movie and she would love it if I told her I saw this place! Thank you!

      Oh I’m so sorry I don’t remember exactly… But I think you could find the street if you do a Google search! Good luck :) It’s in the 1st arrondissement anyway.
