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 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, then Paprika confirmed once more that he was simply one of the most wildly imaginative filmmakers in Japanese cinema. With his fourth and final film, Kon offered his most mind-bending masterpiece.

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 3D and traditional animation.
