Discover the art of sake. An age-old staple of Japanese culture and cuisine, the fermented rice wine has recently been winning fans all over the world. Kampai! For the Love of Sake journeys from rice paddies in Japan to breweries around the globe as it chronicles three passionate exponents of the increasingly popular beverage: a British ex-pat who has become Japan's first foreign master brewer, an American journalist known as the "Sake Evangelist," and a fifth-generation Japanese brewer determined to shake up the industry. Together, their stories form a fascinating snapshot of how ancient traditions are adapting to the demands of a growing global market.

You wish this portrait of Japan's rice-wine elixir were half as intoxicating as its subject.

Crisp if feather-light ...

An occasionally enlightening if long-winded primer that will prove best suited to connoisseurs.

August 18, 2016 | Full Review…

A trio of naturally compelling working-class success stories is inadvertently diluted by inferior talking-head interview footage in sake documentary Kampai! For the Love of Sake.

The best way to screen this might well be as an infomercial at sake conventions, where viewers are free to sample minutes-long clips set against an incessant soundtrack of bland, easy-listening music.

July 19, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A paean to more than just rice wine. It is a consideration of tradition in transition and the wondrous possibilities that being open to new ways can engender.
