Paprika (2006)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Paprika (2006) Three scientists at the Foundation for Psychiatric Research fail to secure a device they've invented, the D.C. Mini, which allows people to record and watch their dreams. A thief uses the device to enter people's minds, when awake, and distract them with their own dreams and those of others. Chaos ensues. The trio - Chiba, Tokita, and Shima - assisted by a police inspector and by a sprite named Paprika must try to identify the thief as they ward off the thief's attacks on their own psyches. Dreams, reality, and the movies merge, while characters question the limits of science and the wisdom of Big Brother.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Paprika: Don't you think dreams and the Internet are similar? They are both areas where the repressed conscious mind vents.
  • [first lines] Paprika: Time for the greatest show on earth!
  • Paprika: It seems you have quite a fondness for movies. Detective Kogawa Toshimi: I don't really like movies all THAT much...
  • Tokita Kohsaku: I swallow everything.
  • [last lines] Detective Kogawa Toshimi: One ticket, please.
Movie Trivia:
  • The tall and short bartenders in Paprika's website are voiced by director Satoshi Kon, and the original author of the Paprika novel, Yasutaka Tsutsui, respectively.
  • When Paprika interviews Kogawa in his filmmaker guise, his mannerisms and appearance resemble that of Akira Kurosawa.
  • SPOILER: At the end of the film, when Kogawa Toshimi finally goes to the movies, the camera slowly scrolls over some of the movie posters, the most visible are for Satoshi Kon's previous three movies: Perfect Blue (1998), Sennen joy (2001), and Tokyo Godfathers (2003).
