Great doc! Highly recommend it. Hiro is a hero.
Amazing the amount of dedication. Interesting to learn about the art and also a bit about Jiro's childhood. Loved it but it made my mouth water!
I wasn't sure I would find this interesting, but I gave it a try. So much more than a movie about sushi. It's a story about striving for excellence in your craft. Highly recommend!
Makes me want to be a better person.
I enjoyed it & I think Jiro was an interesting person but I'm not sure I'd re-watch this. However, that said I'm glad I took the time to watch it. There's a lot of interesting bits of culture intermixed into the story line as well that I appreciated.
