        Even for those who are not into sushi, it can only be an enormous pleasure to listen to this 85-year-old sushi master (and the people around him) talk about his perfectionism and love for what he does, as well as the man's relationship with his eldest son who is supposed to succeed him.

        Jiro Dreams of Sushi is, of course, about more than Jiro and sushi. It is about work, dedication, mastery, family, and (changing) Japan. There is much one can get out of this simple little film. However, as others have stated, the material feels stretched out (more appropriate for a one-hour special). Jiro tells of many things but does not really tell a story. That said, I would recommend it to the hard workers out there that could use a bit of inspiration and a sense that dedication does pay off.

        Jiro Dreams of Sushi is an inspiring and lovely documentary on the determination of Jiro, the greatest sushi chef. A not so traditional Japanese, who has the typical work ethic but not ideologies. An intriguing and humorous character, who at 85 still has a need to work. The camera work was stunning, the score was perfect, and the dishes looked unbelievable. I had an instant craving to fly to Tokyo and eat that sushi. It shows the true craft and search for absolute perfection. It's amazing to see a group of people so determined to the lifestyle, that they sacrificed there lives for it. Undoubtably the greatest looking documentary I've seen.
