Jiro Dreams of Sushi

1h 21m Documentary 2011

Discover the world's greatest sushi chef

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimages, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father’s shadow.

“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.” -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“It is as much a family saga as a visit to sushi nirvana, and that adds an an unexpected and satisfying narrative to this visual stunner.” -Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

“An extraordinary morsel of a movie, and yes, you’ll want sushi afterward. But it won’t taste like Jiro’s.”–Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
