"That's right, keep running. There are no boundaries to dreams. The spirit will be freed from the constraints of the body... and gain limitless freedom. Including me! I will also be free!"

When a machine that allows therapists to enter their patient's dreams is stolen, all hell breaks loose. Only a young female therapist can stop it: Paprika.

Fantastic movie with amazing music and incredible visuals. The story is interesting enough and the characters are pretty well flushed out... until the end. The end is a huge letdown.

I've been curious about this film ever since I overheard my peers dub Inception as a clone of it. While Inception's big lie (the PASIV device) might have been inspired by Paprika (which shares a similar, if not identical, lie), these films are hugely different in their content and meaning. To dismiss either as a duplicate of the other is unjustified and frankly, calls into question the viewer that... read more

A machine allows therapists to enter patients' dreams. When it's stolen, all hell breaks loose, and only a woman therapist (nicknamed "Paprika") seems able to stop it.

"15th of August, Blu-Ray Paprika on kuin anime-elokuvien Inception, vaikka vertailukohde onkin hyvin erilainen kokonaisuudeltaan kuin mitä tämä. Leffassa viljellään koko puolentoista tunnin ajan todella surrealistista kuvastoa, joka ulottuu paikoitellen jopa unimaailman ulkopuolelle. Välillä on vaikea hahmottaa, mikä on unta ja mikä todellisuutta. Visuaaliselta ulkoasultaan Paprika juhlii värien ja ilahduttavien yksityiskohtien yltäkylläisyydessä. Kiehtova elokuva kaikinpuolin.

"29.2. (DVD/Kirjasto) Unien surrealismi on äärimmäisen kaunista sekä tunnelmarikasta katsottavaa ja elokuva on parhaimmillaan kuin suoraan alitajunnasta. Pidin sammakoista. Alati safkaa naamariinsa mättävä ihravuori oli mauton. Tässä oli myös animetissit."
