Paprika is an anime movie directed by Satohi Kon, the story plot starts with a machine that lets therapists enter patients dreams. When the machine was stolen, all hell breaks loose and only one woman seems able to stop it. The woman is a therapist and she has a nickname “Paprika”. Kon is a brilliant director by any standard and as the characters shuttle from dream to dream, from one nightmare to another, Paprika becomes a thrilling tour de force of visual invention. Every frame of this Japanese animation is packed with imagination. This delightful movie is bursting with ideas about Japanese repression, multiple identities and collective dreams.
