But in Japan, there are craftspeople who go far beyond this to reach a special kind of mastery. These people are called Takumi and they devote 60,000 hours to their craft.

Meditative and thought-provoking
6 April 2019 | by benedictpringleSee all my reviews

Fascinating subject matter, beautifully shot. Watching the film has a meditative effect, which given one of the themes is the importance of focus and stepping out of our attention-deficit society, is very clever.
