    Not bad.

    Jiro Dreams of Sushi is about sushi. The film looks and sounds alright. Jiro seems like a good dude. The purpose of the documentary repeats itself often. Available on Netflix Instant, Jiro Dreams of Sushi may as well be checked out.

    Et interessant indblik i hvor svært det kan være at lave noget så simpelt som en restaurant der kun serverer nigiri sushi...
    Og så endda gør det så godt at de år efter år får tildelt de umulige 3 stjerner i Michelin guiden og stadig kun har 8 spiseplader - "for det er jo maden det handler om"..
    Jiro er (sammen med Bent Frabricius Bjerre og Mærsk) den sejeste 89 årige jeg har set på arbejdsmarkedet...

    As if a (young) Jane Austen made a documentary.

    That I watched this while drinking a Diet Coke and eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup was not lost on me.

    A beautiful little film about mastery and craftsmanship (and also delicious raw fish). There's a lot to learn specifically about Japanese culture here, but the underlying philosophical message of living with purpose day-to-day is quite powerful as well.

    Interestingly, I think the form of this film slightly mirrors the content. This is not a flashy or shocking documentary, it is extremely conventional in structure. However, the photography and stories are beautiful in their simplicity, just like the sushi featured.

    I don't like sushi. I never will. But Jiro? He is the man! His attitude and ideologies of work is exceptional. I feel the same way about my work. Maybe not to the same degree but I totally believe in always out doing yourself every time. You should only get better at whatever it is you do. The only thing I disagree with is his sense of satisfaction. He's never satisfied, yet he loves his work. I see that as…

    Al igual que el restaurante este documental se merece 3 estrellas Michelin y Jiro merece una estatua en Japón que reconozca toda su trayectoria, definitivamente él es el ejemplo perfecto de superación y mejora constante.

    No sé si algún día en mi vida logre probar ese sushi, pero de algo estoy seguro, si Jiro viene a Mérida y mira los "sushis" que aquí se hacen de seguro se suicidaría.

    Like Jiro himself, the film documenting his life is simple, clean, and deeply effective.
