Jiro Dreams of Sushi Reviews
A very affectionate and sweet look at at a group of people who make sushi for a living. Their care and attention to the process is admirable and entirely deserving of this film. It certainly warms the heart and knowing that, in 2016, ole' Jiro is still going at the ripe age of 90, only adds to that.
It doesn't meander along too much thanks to its fair runtime and it offers more than enough of the human element to make it appealing to those who aren't solely interested in the specifics of sushi making.
I still don't really care about sushi but I care about this film.
Jiro Ono the man, is frail and singularly focused on providing what could be described as a succulent gift in every single bite his restaurants serves to customers. As the legend, he is arguably the world's greatest sushi chef.
This documentary explorers both the legend and peaks at the man behind it, giving us a full treat of one of Japan's culinary greats.
Worth watching. Especially if you love cooking.
