DVD/BLURAY RELEASE DATE : July, 24th 2012
Eighty-five year-old Jiro Ono is considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. With a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subwaystation, most of the population will never have the chance to experience his culinary genius. On July 24, Magnolia Home Entertainment brings Ono’s passion for food to the dinner table when the “mouthwatering” (New York Post) documentary, JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI arrives on Blu-ray and DVD.
In “a work of art” (Time Out New York), JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI brings viewers to Sukiyabashi Jiro, Ono’s inauspicious sushi restaurant. Despite the locale’s humble appearance, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3-star Michelin review and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeat appearances to the establishment. From Jiro’s life as an unparalleled success in the culinary world and a loving, yet complicated father, the “thoughtful and wonderful” (Philadelphia Inquirer) film gives an inside look at a man who has raised the bar on perfection. This “treat for sushi veterans” (NPR) offers a “beautiful, thoughtful and engrossing” (The Oregonian) meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection.
