Last Tuesday evening I had the pleasure of seeing a wonderful film with some friends at the Little Theatre in Bath. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary which follows the life and work of 85-year-old Jiro, and his sons, who are undoubtedly the best sushi makers in the world.
Jiro's relentless attempts to make the perfect sushi are jaw dropping. His restaurant, tiny, and tucked away in a tube station, has been awarded 3 Michelin stars, and is so popular you have to book over a month in advance. Regardless of whether you are a sushi fan or not, I'm sure you would take away something from this documentary.
Apart from being hugely inspirational, and moving in an odd kind of way, it was mouth-watering. Set to a beautiful score, the film seduces you with slow shots of the sushi being prepared and presented - so perfect and simple you can almost taste it. Needless to say, I have been craving some ever since, and seeing as I haven't found an excellent sushi restaurant here in Bath, I will have to wait until I am somewhere that does.
