I’d been waiting almost a year to view this and it finally came my way. An incredibly inspiring story delivered through fantastic camera work. Definitely give it a look!
Jiro Dreams of SushiÂ is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the worldâ€™s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, 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 repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiroâ€™s sushi bar.
For most of his life, Jiro has been mastering the art of making sushi, but even at his age he sees himself still striving for perfection, working from sunrise to well beyond sunset to taste every piece of fish; meticulously train his employees; and carefully mold and finesse the impeccable presentation of each sushi creation. At the heart of this story is Jiroâ€™s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiroâ€™s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his fatherâ€™s shadow.
The feature film debut of director David Gelb,Â Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiroâ€™s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and a loving, yet complicated father.
