YesAsia Editorial Description

The word "auteur" was already being thrown around after Kon Satoshi's first film, Perfect Blue, in 1997, and in the ensuing ten years he has made good on that promise. If in his next two films, Millennium Actress and Tokyo Godfathers, Kon sealed his status as one of the greatest anime directors ever, then his latest Paprika confirms once more that he is simply one of the most wildly imaginative filmmakers working today. With his fourth film, Kon offers his most mind-bending masterpiece yet.

Unassuming Atsuko Chiba is a psychotherapist and dream detective. She conducts research with a cutting-edge device called "DC-MINI" that allows users to enter and manipulate people's dreams. As her dream alter ego Paprika, Atsuko becomes everything she isn't in the real world - young, exotic, fearless, and strengthened with the ability to help the troubled minds she enters. When a DC-MINI prototype is stolen from the lab, however, the healing device becomes a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. Researchers are driven mad as dreams and reality collide uncontrollably, leaving Atsuko/Paprika with the task of hunting down the culprit in a stunningly beautiful, yet sinister dreamscape.

Paprika is based on a novel by renowned sci-fi satirist Tsutsui Yasutaka, whose works have been adapted into films like The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and The World Sinks Except Japan. As with Kon Satoshi's other works, the film is produced by Studio Madhouse, and rendered in a bold, bright, and kinetic blend of 3-D and traditional animation.

Mind-blowing anime Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Satoshi Kon's "Paprika" tells of a new technology that allows dreams to be viewed in a manner similar to movies, hence allowing analysts to see how the dreamer's subconscious is revealed in the dreams. Indeed, the technology allows the analyst actually to enter into and participate in the dreams.

Something has gone terribly wrong with this technology and it is leading to people who have been exposed to it to commit suicide. Now it seems that individual dreams are merging into a collective delusion, which is blurring the line between reality and dreams. A trio of intrepid investigators seek to get things under control.

This bare-bones description of the plot may be a bit misleading. Watching "Paprika" is like walking through a funhouse hall of mirrors. It can be very difficult to discern what the heck is going on; one is left agog at the wild imagery.

If you liked the bizarre, mind-bending ending of the anime classic "Akira", then you will love this exuberantly colorful and action-packed tale. If you preferred the warm, human story of Satoshi Kon's previous film "Tokyo Godfathers", then this may not be your cup of tea. I recommend "Paprika" to all serious anime buffs.
