A documentary on 85-year-old sushi master jiro ono, his business in the basement of a tokyo office building, and his relationship with his son and eventual heir, yoshikazu.
Editor's Note
Jiro Ono is one of the most-respected and acclaimed sushi chefs in Japan. At the age of 85, he operates an exclusive sushi restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, with a long waiting list for reservations (the restaurant has a mere ten tables and a typical meal costs $300) and a prized three-star rating from the Michelin restaurant guide. Perfecting the art of sushi has been one of Ono's obsessions since he was a young man, and filmmaker David Gelb offers a delicious look into his life and work in the documentary JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI. In the film, Ono discusses his unhappy childhood, his early days in the restaurant game, and his techniques and philosophies about his chosen dish; he also interacts with fish dealers and his two sons, both gifted chefs who live and work in their father's shadow. JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI was an official selection at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is as elegant and tasty as the splendid sushi prepared by the man in the title, and that is saying a lot." 03/16/2012

Film Comment
"Ono may be the center of this universe, but the real star of the film is the sushi..." 03/01/2012

"[A] portrait of a master. In its deeper layers, it explores what drives us to make things: Beautiful, jewel-like things, or things that delight our palate -- or, in this case, both." 03/07/2012

Wall Street Journal
"At the age of 85, the subject of this fascinating documentary not only dreams of sushi but still drives himself to make it better....David Gelb's film is a study in perfectionism..." 03/22/2012

Entertainment Weekly
"It's no surprise that the tall, spry jokey Jiro is a perfectionist, but the film's real allure is his obsession with simplicity..." -- Grade: B 03/30/2012

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "As a documentary about world-class sushi, this film is definitive." 04/04/2012
