    This turned out to be a pretty good docu, very encouraging and inspiring. Even these guys say some sea creatures are harder and harder to come by because of over fishing. Businesses should balance profit with preserving natural resources and ecosystems. And always strive to improve your craft.

    Realmente impressionante ver a motivação e o engajamento do mestre japonês em seu ofício. Um exemplo vivo da eterna busca pela excelência. A fotografia, os enquadramentos e as tomadas são como sushi: icônicos, destacados, harmoniosos. Muito dos valores da cultura japonesa estão representados neste documentário, mas o que mais impressiona realmente é a relação de Jiro com sua ambição maior, que é a manufatura perfeita, a humildade de reconhecer a necessidade da eterna prática e de sempre enxergar margem para aperfeiçoar suas técnicas. Uma aula de profissionalismo.

    I wasn't expecting this to be so pretty when I began to watch it. I had heard about Jiro Ono before and his restaurant and I was always puzzled about why it was such a big deal, but this documentary helped me understand it.

    This man is not a cook, he's an artisan. I was impressed by his attitude, the only thing he cares about is sushi and he doesn't seem to be bothered by anything else.

    Most of this…

    Easy to watch documentary of a 85-year-old Japanese cook who dedicated his life to making sushi. Even if you don't like sushi, you'll like this one.

    A symphony of great scoring, near-entrancing (albeit heavy-handed at certain times) cinematography with the talented, humble, devoted and admirable sushi artisan Jiro Ono's life and work as its conductor. I can only wish to have even a shred of his passion for what he does. Truly amazing.

    "After ten years, they let you cook the eggs."

    This is the level of passion that Jiro Ono, an 85 year-old sushi shokunin takes with his small sushi restaurant located in Tokyo. The film shows Jiro in his restaurant along with his oldest son and their apprentices. It also shows Jiro's younger son (who worked for his father before opening a separate branch of the restaurant in another location of Tokyo.)

    There is true art on what Jiro does with…

    Me da igual la comida de autor, me tocan los huevos las estrellas Michelín, Ferrán Adriá me cae mal. Pero ver a este señor hacer sushi es una experiencia hipnótica. Es el triunfo de la paciencia, el camino de la perfección, el samurai tranquilo...

    No vuelvo a tomar cutre sushi de buffet en mi puta vida.
