I hadn’t heard much about ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ before I was looking for cinema options this afternoon. It tells the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. The film shows how much of his life has been dedicated to his craft and I don’t think I’ve ever watched a more focused individual. His sons are both sushi chefs and, to be honest, weren’t given a lot of option as young men. Alas, this it’s a lovely tribute to a guy who has honed his skill over 75 years. A truly amazing achievement in any line of work.
