“Once you decide on your occupation… you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret of success and is the key to being regarded honorably.”
This film is about Jiro Ono, an 85 year old man who is a sushi master, father and one of the hardest working people perhaps in the world. It is my all time favorite film; it combines my love of sushi, a fascinating country I am excited to go to and a beautiful human that makes me smile. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary not just about sushi, but about hard work, family and pursuing the road to happiness through passion and drive. The film is in subtitles as it is all filmed in Japanese which is a feat for a film. It is a dream come true to watch a film entirely about sushi. One of my many life time goals is to go to Japan and eat at Jiro’s restaurant in a subway station. That will require a lot of planning as the restaurant is world famous, takes months for a reservation and is pricey. But I can’t wait!
I could watch this film over and over again.
Let me know what you all think of it!
