Extraordinary documentary about an extraordinary man. You don't need to like sushi to learn a lot from this story about excellence, perseverance, and commitment. You'll walk away from this film with many things to think about, regardless of what your interests are. And if you like sushi, you'll probably start planning your trip to Japan just to eat at Jiro's place.

This documentary shows a world that is in the brink of extinction. It reminds us of the importance of tradition and the love for the craft. It shows one of the few things worth living for in this planet that day by day gets smaller and uninteresting… Jiro Ono is the representation of true honor and commitment for the life he chose and loves.
