Jiro, pictured below, believes that the honorable thing to do is master only one thing in life. In Jiro Dreams of Sushi, we see just a glimpse of the long life of work that he and his oldest son have put in to mastering sushi. The documentary is inviting, heart warming and duly praised with laurels from every corner of the globe. While on a movie+food kick, there’s no harm in mentioning what has to be, positively, one of the best documentaries put forth: Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
Simply put, if you haven’t treated yourself to a thoughtful and soft-spoken story about a shockingly intense craft over crowded with mediocrity and bristling with inspiration to eat and travel and sink your claws and teeth nose and knuckle deep into your own passions to grace yourself with a lifetime of fulfillment, see the movie. The first two minutes of the documentary set the stage. You’re introduced to Jiro, his philosophy, his restaurant, and Japan. Tchaikovsky’s Opus 35, incorrectly credited in some locations as the 5th, enters as wide shots of Japan, its streets and the people narrow your focus to one simple thing: Sushi.

In a rare treat (pun intended), we present one of the absolute finest renditions of Tchaikovsky’s Opus 35 Violin Concerto in D Major. After examining a handful of recordings, this must be, by far, the most moving; surpassing even, the snippets overheard that help to open the movie. Sayaka Shoji, of Japan, is the youngest winner at the Paganini Competition and graces a Flickr slideshow of “Sushi.” This, by no means matches the joy of the movie, but you may find peace and an ethereal longing within yourself in the next 19 minutes and 47 seconds.
