Jiro Dreams of Sushi

[u]

United States 2011, 81 mins ( in Japanese with subtitles )
Director: David Gelb

This enchanting documentary follows elderly Japanese master chef Jiro Ono, chronicling his almost fanatical quest to perfect the art of sushi at his three-Michelin-star restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro.

Beyond Jiro’s kitchen, the film also profiles the old man’s two sons: Yoshikazu, destined to one day take over his father’s flagship restaurant, and Takashi, already running a successful restaurant of his own. A quietly moving homage to a gastronomic dynasty and a revealing insight into a secretive, perfectionist world, JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is one of a kind.
