    This was pretty interesting despite me not being much of a sushi eater. It was beautifully shot and I enjoyed the classical music that played throughout.

    Documentary about an obsessive, 85 year old sushi master and his tiny, 3 Michelin star rated restaurant. It's a good film about the craft of food and gives an insight into the unique cultural elements which go with Japanese cooking.

    Mesmerizing portrait of Jiro Ono's work. This 85 year old sushi restaurant owner has been doing his craft for 75 years, and is shown passing his trade to apprentices, and his bright son, Yoshikazu. His small underground establishment seats only 9 at a time, requires a booking at least a month in advance, will cost upwards from 30,000 yen for a meal that may last 15 minutes, but has been given a 3 star Michelin rating for reputedly serving the…
