Meet 85 year-old Jiro Ono, widely praised as the world’s greatest sushi chef. His tiny restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, is tucked away in a Tokyo subway station and only seats ten, yet bears 3 Michelin stars and has a month-long reservation waiting list. Jiro runs this culinary gem with a will of iron, deft fingers and his eldest son, Yoshikazu. Their fascinating relationship lies at the heart of this wasabi-infused tale, as the apprentice struggles with the sometimes overbearing aura of the master. David Gelb’s feature film nimbly explores every facet of Jiro’s daily life, from his total commitment to the craft to his role as patriarch, making our mouths water along the way.
