85-year-old Jiro Ono is possibly the greatest Sushi chef in the world. His restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, seats only ten people, serves only Sushi, and requires a reservation made months in advance. Jiro works tirelessly every day, and his assistants and apprentices work even harder, hand-picking every ingredient and utilizing unique and complex culinary methods at every turn. Training with Jiro is an intensive ten-year process. He believes one must commit oneself fully to one’s work, in mind, body, and spirit, and he practices this belief on a daily basis.

Jiro Ono is an inherently fascinating subject; that much is certain. It would be easy, therefore, to underestimate what director David Gelb has achieved in his documentary about the man, Jiro Dream of Sushi. This is so much more than a simple portrait of a compelling subject. It is a fantastic film in its own right, a stirring cinematic achievement »
