Director: Satoshi Kon
Cast: Megumi Hayashibara, Tôru Furuya, Kôichi Yamadera, Katsunosuke Hori
RunTime: 1 hr 30 mins

Genre: Anime
Rating: NC-16 (Some Nudity)

This is an animation not meant for kids. Although rated NC16 for nudity, do not expect some porn Jap anime flick. If you intend to leave your brain outside the cinema for a relaxing time, then don’t bother.

This is a movie about brains, and will engage your brain both in its visual kaleidoscope and mental challenge. Paprika is about the invention of a device called the "DC Mini," which enables researchers to enter the dreams of a subject and explore matters of the unconscious mind.

What is dream, and what is reality? Be ready for the visual explosion of pinned butterflies, singing dolls, jumping frogs, man-faced robots, lucky cats and every sort of fantasy creative moving in tune like a marching band. Many times the schizophrenic nature will drive you nuts, or allow you to indulge in that wild-like fantasy.

Although confusing at the start, the pieces place together appropriately towards the end. Once again, you admire the Japanese for their dedication to their piece of art (even though it is 2D), and brilliant way of thought-provoking story telling.

Paprika – Not for the faint brained
