5.0 out of 5 stars A visual masterpiece, Nov. 8 2011
This review is from: Paprika (Bilingual) (DVD)
I first watched Paprika several months ago and have been unable to shake this movie from my mind since. It really takes several viewings to fully appreciate and understand the language, complexity, and depth of this fantastic film. The story is about a group of psychiatrists who create a computer which can view, change and analyze dreams. One such machine gets stolen and eventually all of the dreams merge into one, as well as merging into reality. A Japanese soundtrack frames and complements the movie at perfect moments.

Although the story will be difficult to follow and understand and some scenes are visually intense, Paprika is an absolute jewel of a film in any language (French, Spanish, English or original Japanese). It is also relatively loyal to the original book, which is also worth reading.

I recommend watching this film in quiet environment with a large screen television to fully appreciate Paprika's splendour. I also recommend purchasing this movie in order to fully understand its feel and texture.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An absolutely wonderful experience, Paprika is intelligent, complicated, visually stunning and pleasing, and interesting.
The plot revolves around the theft of a device that allows people to enter people's dreams and help them make psychological breakthroughs. The thief begins using the device to plant dreams into people's minds, driving them into a suicidal frenzy. It's an interesting thiller/mystery.

The Blu-Ray looks fantastic, with a sharper picture(although I warn you its not immediately noticeable, cartoons aren't necessarily designed for Blu-Ray). The sound is fantastic, especially the haunting melody of "Parade". The menu is non-intrusive, allowing you to change languages/subtitles/scenes without needing to go back to the root menu. It really is a fantastically well programmed disc. The additional content is unimpressive, the usual docs and dvd commentaries, so if you're a stickler for extra content, you will be disappointed at the mostly empty blu-ray disc.
