jiro dreams of sushi is a lovely movie to curl up on the couch and watch. jiro ono is 85 years old and after finding his dream job(sushi chef) at a very young age, he embarked on a journey to become the best at making, serving and preparing sushi. the film traces the history of this true artist and explores jiro's family life and his current success at being the highest-starred chef in japan. he continually strives to become better and better, and after 60 years of putting fish on rice he says 'even at my age, in my work, i haven't reached perfection.'  i mean what more can a person learn after 60 years of making sushi? but in this film, we see how even the most simple, mundane, dare i say boring activities of one's job can take on a magical quality when attention is given it. being present and taking care with each activity of one's work and service to the world.

i was fascinated by jiro and his approach to his work. i hope you'll give this film a look-see and tell me if you like it. xoxoxo ps. i have to give a shout out to producer kevin iwashina. he is one smart cookie and all-around great guy.
