Description: In the basement of a Tokyo office building, 85 year old sushi master Jiro Ono works tirelessly in his world renowned restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro. As his son Yoshikazu faces the pressures of stepping into his father's shoes and taking over the legendary restaurant, Jiro relentlessly pursues his lifelong quest to create the perfect piece of sushi.
An excellent profile of the life and work of a world class sushi master and family
Super interesting. That the arguably best sushi in the world is served up in a place in a "subway" with few seats run by a man obsessed with perfection in his food and restaurant…well, it makes for fascinating viewing. The family dynamics—good and bad—and the sacrifices required to be the best are shown without sugar-coating. Seeing how the two sons are, each in their way, dealing with following in dad’s footsteps adds to this portrait of a great sushi chef. Recommended.
