Now I am not an expert about movies, but I can say with no ego that this humble production really is a window into a world of excellence. We are taken on this journey through the eyes of a special person who believes in always improving himself on a never ending road to perfection, in which the saying “Ultimate simplicity leads to purity” falls nothing short of a true statement when talking about a master like Jiro Ono.
