This inspires me to concoct a lovely dinner and a movie night at home with some sushi take out and this film. The trailer is beautiful and I’m even more excited after reading everyone’s great comments.

Then again, I’m biased towards documentaries and movies about food.

I love Babette’s Feast and find the cooking scenes so mesmerizing. And Eat, Drink, Man, Woman. I love the chef’s approach to his life through food.

I love that one so much. It’s really amazing. I recommend it to everyone. I’ve never seen Mad Hot Ballroom. Can’t wait to check it out.

Did you notice how a wife was not mentioned once? Not surprising. I do love documentaries and have seen so many ~ a few of my favorites: Touching the Void (AMAZING!), Dear Zachary (moving), & Herb and Dorothy.

We both were enjoyed and ended up craving sushi. “The Saltmen of Tibet” is another favorite slow documentary

I found it beautifully inspiring. The message I took is that it is important to stay moving and growing, to keep learning and never assume that you have achieved perfection.

We also have a Roku box which is linked to our amazon account so we can either purchase rentals through there or watch whatever is available free to us as amazon prime members. We don’t have cable so this works great for us.

Do you use a streaming system? Or where do you find them?

The most recent I’ve watched are “The Queen of Versailles” detailing the fall of billionaire family during the 2008 economic crisis and “First Position” a documentary that follows young ballet stars competing in the Youth America Grand Prix.

If you’re looking for a documentary with a real twist, check out “Catfish”. I can’t say much more or I’ll ruin it for you. The friend who recommended it also suggested “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” which is currently in my Netflix queue. Sounds like I should bump it up to first spot!

I saw this last week too and I thought the exact same thing. I can’t decide if I felt really sad for Jiro because he seemed to have absolutely zero joie de vivre or jealous because he seems to have reached such a level of contentment with his life.

Honestly, it left me feeling sad for Jiro, for his sons too, but mostly for Jiro. He is a man so dedicated to his work/art, that it appeared to me even the relationships with his family were sacrificed. It seemed clear he had no regrets about devoting himself so wholly and passionately to his business, but family will always be a higher priority to me. I know I won’t wish I labored more for my business on my death bed. It’s possible Jiro will. Maybe it reflects our different cultures. I still prefer my way of prioritizing family before work.

Neither are new, but they are both such very happy films.
