Groundbreaking animator Satoshi Kon (whose credits include Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, and Perfect Blue) directed this visually spectacular adaptation of a science fiction novel by Yatsutaka Tsutsui. Atsuko is a psychiatrist who uses advanced technology to study the human mind. Atsuko has developed a machine that will allow her to enter the dreams of her patients and study their psyches from the inside. Atsuko also does double duty as Paprika, a high-tech detective who uses this new innovation to find out the truth about what the people she's trailing really think. However, Atsuko falls victim to a thief who steals the one-of-a-kind machine, and Paprika sets out to find it as a wave of psychological instability tears through the city. Paprika received its world premiere at the 2006 Venice Film Festival.

I saw this movie in the theaters while it was there for a short period... It was awesome, good story, and animation. I'm picking it up when it comes to dvd.

This film continues the director's fascination with the mixture of dream and reality that is also on display in Millenium Actress and Perfect Blue. The three films are almost a trilogy of past, present, and future. The visuals are a great blend of cel and CGI animation, especially the opening credits. I think these are dazzlingly inventive. The music is wonderful and plays a great part in the overall design.

Another great movie from the creator of Paranoia Agent. This is a must see with a great sound track.
