What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary film in Japanese with English subtitles about Jiro Ono, a premier sushi chef who has gained great renown in his tiny restaurant in Tokyo. Older kids and teens, with proficient reading skills and some patience, will appreciate the simplicity, commitment, and success of Jiro's life. It helps, too, if viewers have some interest in food, though in this film food preparation is a metaphor for any of life's great passions. The movie's message is that satisfaction and lofty goals are reached through dedication, constant striving for excellence, and mastering of skills. Some cigarette smoking is seen in background.
