Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)

David Gelb's gently moving Jiro Dreams of Sushi is an engrossing, beautifully respectful portrait of a great artisan, packed with mouth-watering dishes, fascinating detail, and thoughtful philosophising.


"Japanese documentary about Michelin three-star sushi restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro, located in Chuo-ku, Tokyo, and its 85-year-old owner Jiro Ono. While Jiro works endlessly, committed to producing the perfect sushi, his son Yoshikazu prepares to take over his father's small but world famous restaurant." Thunderbird Releasing
