NETFLIX Review: Jiro Dreams Of Sushi (2012)

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.

I love films, I also love Sushi. So this is really pretty much a perfect documentary for me, but for others will also gain a great insight into the art and dedication into Sushi making.

I have the highest respect for Sushi chefs as I fully know the decades of training and craftsmanship that has gone into their career, in fact just as the film suggests – sushi making is more an art form than cooking. But this art form is truly spectacular, beautiful and full of the highest dedication in probably any profession. A deliciously great documentary.
