JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI @The Ken Cinema

Synopsis:
Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a quiet yet enthralling documentary that chronicles the life of Jiro Ono, the most famous sushi chef in Tokyo. For most of his 85 years, Jiro has been perfecting the art of making sushi. He works 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. Although his restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro only seats ten diners, it is a phenomenon in Tokyo that has won the prestigious 3-Star Michelin review, making him the oldest Michelin chef alive. Jiro Dreams of Sushi chronicles Jiro's life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and as a loving yet complicated father of two.Jiro Dreams of Sushi explores the passion required to run and maintain a legendary sushi restaurant, and one son's journey to eventually take his father's place at the head of the culinary dynasty.

    I loved this movie. The Japanese work ethic is really to be admired and I think we can all learn something from this. To achieve the status of "best sushi" in any market is a great accomplishment, but to do so in the capital of sushi and maintain that status for many years is astounding. I feel privileged to have seen this documentary and get a unique glimpse into the world of an absolute master of food preparation.

    Michelin 3 star rating that is. This ran so close in tenor to last year's "Bill Cunningham" documentary. I loved it.
