    I highly dislike seafood, fish and all other foods that swim but I was so enamored by Jiro Dreams of Sushi that I now completely understand the love others have of sushi.

    It is a short (81 minutes) and simple documentary about Jiro Ono, an 85 year-old sushi chef in his own restaurant located in Tokyo's Ginza subway station. Jiro loves what he does ... and doesn't know if he'll ever retire although he admits he will one day leave…

    Jiro Dreams of Sushi is one of the most heartfelt and most earnest documentaries I've ever seen. It is a portrait of a man whom we should all strive to be more like. Not much else can be said, other than you should not watch this sweet little film on an empty stomach.

    This made my heart hurt almost as much as Tarzan, and for much the same reason. I wish life could be like this.

    Ostensibly, this is what it says on the tin. Jiro dreams of sushi. And he tells us as much.

    I like sushi, but i also like lamb chops. And good wine. I'm not very keen on trifle. But if Jiro was talking about dedicating the past 75 years of his life to any of these food types, or even non food types, if Jiro was a financial auditor, I would find his story compelling.

    It is a story about elevating…

    Low key, calm, and pleasant.

    This is by far the most inspiring movie ever made. A great example which should be taken by most people from the western society.
