What makes a good art, a good art is an unwavering perseverance which will be an impetus for others to strive to be better. This movie delivers a great exemplification of hardwork without so much as reducing it, thereby encouraging me to aspire to have Jiro's level of integrity someday somehow.
Lavoro davvero affascinante,che immerge in un mondo derivante da una tradizione secolare che lentamente ha preso piede in maniera travolgente in tutto il mondo.Jiro è fantastico,i momenti "gastronomici" si alternano ottimamente ai momenti "quotidiani" (il mercato del pesce è strepitoso).Lavoro certosino,dedizione assoluta,attenzione maniacale ai dettagli:questo vuol dire essere al top di un'arte. Gran lavoro di Gelb.
Beautifully shot portrait of a perfectionist sushi master. Exploring his unwavering commitment and dedication to his craft and showing how this has flowed onto his sons. It balances this with the impressions of customers as well as showing some of the wonderful processes behind creating some of the finest sushi you could dine on. It doesn't break any new ground in the documentary form but is solidly made.
An engrossing documentary. It was well balanced with details about the food, the people, the craft, the culture and the industry. The camera shots and the music were appropriate for capturing the mood of the piece. The director gets the tone right. The film is certainly sympathetic towards Jiro but the pauses give space to ponder the implications of his obsession. What's it like to be his wife? His son?
