Beginning in 2013, there are a slew of anniversaries on the way. Take note: living in the past is dangerous for your health...
There’s a beautiful documentary called Jiro Dreams of Sushi on the rounds. It played in Dublin’s IFI for five days in January. It’s about 85-year-old Tokyo sushi chef Jiro Ono, proprietor of the triple-Michelin-starred Sukiyabashi restaurant. Along the way, he tells of how he left home as a seven-year-old and never saw his father again. In one scene he pours water on his parents’ gravestone and then turns to his son and comments that he doesn’t know why he comes to see his parents’ grave when they never came to see him.
