Jiro Ono, 85, is the most famous sushi chef in Tokyo. He's devoted his life to perfecting the art of making sushi, working from sunrise to sunset each day, carefully molding and finessing the presentation of each sushi creation.
Despite the fact that his restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, only seats ten, it has won the prestigious 3-Star Michelin review, making him the oldest Michelin chef alive.
The movie also delves into how Jiro's ambition has rubbed off on his sons as well. Although eldest son Yoshikazu will inherit his father's sushi empire, Jiro is not yet ready to retire or to relinquish any of his responsibilities. Though Yoshikazu is unable to reach his full potential with his famous father guiding and critiquing every decision, he is nonetheless proud to learn from a true sushi master.
i walked out of this documentary uplifted. i thought that it presented jiro's passion for sushi very well. this movie makes you care about jiro, sushi and how his legacy will be carried on by his sons. i would recommend this to everyone.
great story about a man who is truly dedicated to his art.
