Jiro Dreams of Sushi (Official Movie Site) - Directed by David Gelb - Now in Theatres - Trailer, Pictures & More
I went to see Jiro Dreams of Sushi today at the Tiff Bell Lightbox in Toronto. This is a serious foodie movie for sure.
Jiro is an 85 year old man who has been making sushi for 75 years and still thinks he can keep improving. He is a serious task master when it comes to Sushi making his 2 sons dedicate their lives to Sushi too. He would rather make Sushi than take a vacation that's how passionate he is about Sushi.
This film show Sushi making in Slow Motion so you can see how delicate it is to make it. It also takes a look at the sustainability of Tuna and the fish that isn't available anymore because of over fishing for profits.
They have serious respect for the Art of Sushi making and for the selection of the fish and the preparation of the Sushi.
If you love Sushi you will want to go and have some after the screening. If you love the art of cooking and food you will also love this film. If you don't like to see fish being killed or are not a fish fan then don't go because you won't like it. Fair warning.
Don't go hungry though.
