Jiro Dreams Of Sushi

Calling all sushi lovers!

Ever since seeing the trailer on iTunes trailers I've been hankering to see this film.  This quiet little film invites us into the world of Jiro Ono, who happens to be the world's oldest 3-starred Michelin chef.  He was also declared a living national treasure by the Japanese Government.

Jiro runs Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seater sushi restaurant that is inside the Ginza subway station.  At 85 years of age, he has been working at his sushi craft for most of his life.  He talks about his dedication to his craft and how it occupies most of his thoughts - he literally dreams of making sushi.
