What a beautiful movie!
I really don't get the hype.
The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
Mostly, the movie is committed to the value of a good time.
I love Jiro. He makes sushi and has the philosophy of a samurai sword master, doesn't bend but is flexible, is dry but has a quick wit, and controls his sons dominantly but loves them abundantly.The movie is really not about sushi (which it really very much is) but more about being driven professionally into one thing and one thing only. To Jiro, it was sushi. In my case, it is compulsive stress eating.We all are the best at something-
What a unique personality, I was really glued to the screen for most of the movie, who knew so much detail could go into such a simple looking dish such as sushi.I don't think I'll ever look at food the same way. Kinda feel bad for his son for having to fill such big shoes, seems though like he's doing a great jobJero Dreams of Sushi - Master one craft in your life.

There's no such thing as perfectDvirp.s. wonder when I'll have the chance to visit this restaurant!
This film showed that with talent and great amounts of hard work, success can be achieved, but more than anything I felt like I was being told that "giro is the greatest and don't bother thinking anything other than that".I found it rather interesting looking into the art of sushi more than I have ever before but, not being a massive eater of sushi, after a while the interest faded to boredom. Repeatedly seeing different fish cut and served, rolled and served.. it went on for some time. Throughout the film you got the sense that Jiro wasn't the friendliest person in the world, however the film only focused on his success and technique, I think it would have been interesting to see his wife's point of view.All in all, interesting to see high quality sushi but not enough of a background story for me to love it.
A few months ago, I saw a French film with a very similar plot to "Jiro Dreams of Sushi"....and it was amazingly dull. So, I was hesitant to watch this Japanese film. Thankfully, I gave it a chance and enjoyed this documentary very much.The film is about an amazingly talented and VERY compulsive sushi master, Jiro Ono. Now in his mid-80s, he is so in love with his work that he STILL works full-time at his small sushi restaurant. Not surprisingly, since his life is his work, his place has managed to receive three Michelin stars--the stop award for dining excellence. The film consists mostly of Jiro and his two sons discussing their work and lives and also includes several others discussing them. The narrator is only heard once--briefly. While all of this sounds pretty dull, it isn't. The filmmakers deserve kudos here--managing to infuse a lot of interest in the subject, using great camera-work (making the food look amazing) as well as terrific classical music to create a wonderful portrait of Jiro--one you can't help but enjoy.By the way, although Jiro has two sons, the film oddly never once mentions their mother (or mothers).
