Director: David Gelb. Cast: Jiro Ono, Yoshikazu Ono. 81 min. Rated PG. Documentary.
Jiro, an 85-year-old sushi chef master, runs a 10-seat bar in Tokyo, selling sushi at up to $300 a plate. But no, this isn't a documentary about fancy cuisines. It's about respect for discipline and perfection; about investing your life and thriving for excellence at your game, regardless of monetary compensation. There is a strange serenity and sense of security in watching Jiro at work - something significantly lacking in the commercialized American way of life. Even if you haven't been to his bar, after watching this, you'll never look at sushi the same again.
