Meet 85 year-old Jiro Ono, widely praised as the worldâ€™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 Gelbâ€™s feature film dÃ©but nimbly explores every facet of Jiroâ€™s daily life, from his total commitment to the craft to his role as patriarch, making our mouths water along the way.
