JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI
A small sushi bar in the basement of a high-rise office building in Tokyo: ten seats, no frills, no restroom – three stars in the Guide Michelin. Jiro Ono has been the man behind the counter here for decades. He exclusively prepares the famed bites of fish on lumps of rice. The 85-year-old’s mission: perfect sushi. Filmmaker David Gelb provides a fascinating look behind the scenes: In these times of TV cooking shows, gastronomic events, and sushi restaurant chains, his film reinspires awe for the fine art of cooking.
