Jiro Dreams of Sushi is about something as simple and yet complicated as doing better. It is an amazing and inspiring documentary with intricate and delicate movement in it. Not about money, but about pride in what you do. The movie appeals to so many sides in people. It is for those interested in food, photography, cinematography, music, and maybe most importantly, the human aspects of defining success – and the price of perfection.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi deals with family culture, work culture, national culture, and of course a profound love and respect for food and sushi in particular. The reviews everywhere are amazing, indeed “a work of art” (David Fear of Time Out New York) which I experienced myself at a preview of the movie (the fourth in Copenhagen) accompagnied by an in-depth interpretative introduction by a Danish translator, Mette Holm.
I am definitely going to buy the movie when it comes out and study it closely!
