A true feat of cinematography. The immense effort Jiro and his apprentices puts into their craft is inspiring. One can only hope to be that dedicated to something in life.

Jiro's Dream Documentary

Very entertaining subject matter and the structure of this documentary is impressive. The Gelb's discipline and perfection seems weak compared to Jiro, mainly because having white subtitles in a white kitchen with chefs wearing white is a great sign of imperfection.

Description: 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 three-star Michelin Guide rating, 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.

"I never thought I would be moved to tears over a documentary about sushi, but this managed to do that. I highly recommend this, I really, truly loved it."

"A charming documentary about an 89 year old sushi chef Jiro Ono who runs a Michelin 3 star restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo. Here is a man that strives for perfection in every meal he does for his customers. He carries on working not for financial gain but because he enjoys it. His small restaurant only has 10 seats and his 20 course menu will set you back a whopping $300!! Despite it being expensive, you have to make reservations at least one month in advance in order to secure a seat. It's no secret"

"An inspire story, but also a little bit scary. I can't imagine me living for my job entirely, or anyone else... it's a matter of priorities and culture, but still, it's too much to sacrifice for work satisfaction. And that sushis were like food porn, wow."
