Movie Info

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world'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 Jiro's sushi bar.At the heart of this story is Jiro's relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro's legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father's shadow. -- (C) Magnolia

Audience Reviews for Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Even for those who are not into sushi, it can only be an enormous pleasure to listen to this 85-year-old sushi master (and the people around him) talk about his perfectionism and love for what he does, as well as the man's relationship with his eldest son who is supposed to succeed him.

I feel like this is gonna be another Tampopo. Which means, make sure you're fully fed and surrounded by good food before you pop the DVD in.

Very charming and beautifully shot. It still did not make me want to try sea urchin, though.
