Jiro Dreams of Sushi

by James Glazebrook

Jiro Dreams of Sushi cast

We LOVE sushi, and we’re craving some actual good films after the shit we’ve sat through lately (Matrix 2 and 3… WHY?!). That’s why we’re stoked that the Berlin Film Society is showing this feature-length documentary at Agora Collective on Friday: Jiro Dreams of Sushi. We’re going to get there early so we can nom down some free ricepipes and then sink a few in the Hecate pop-up cocktail bar afterwards. You can get tickets on Gidsy, or by emailing rsvp@berlinfilmsociety.com. Here’s a little taster (!) of the film to whet your appetite (!!):

A thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection. The story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father’s shadow.
