I love sushi and I love this movie! A wonderful and inspiring ode to perfectionism in craftsmanship, Jiro Dreams Of Sushi will make you hungry (very, very, hungry) but will also inspire you to strive for best in your own life too.
Eighty-five year-old Jiro Ono is considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. With a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station, most of the population will never have the chance to experience his culinary genius.
In “a work of art” (Time Out New York), JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI brings viewers to Sukiyabashi Jiro, Ono’s inauspicious sushi restaurant. Despite the locale’s humble appearance, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3-star Michelin review and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeat appearances to the establishment. From Jiro’s life as an unparalleled success in the culinary world and a loving, yet complicated father, the “thoughtful and wonderful” (Philadelphia Inquirer) film gives an inside look at a man who has raised the bar on perfection. This “treat for sushi veterans” (NPR) offers a “beautiful, thoughtful and engrossing” (The Oregonian) meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection.
