Matthew Turner and Amelie Thomas (Fatal Attractions podcast) join Flixwatcher to review Matthew’s choice Paprika.

Paprika (2006) is an adult animated Japanese sci-fi fantasy film directed by Satoshi (Tokyo Godfathers) Kon. It is based on the novel of the same name by Yasutaka Tsutsui and it is claimed to have been a significant influence on Christopher Nolan’s Inception, although Nolan has never confirmed this.

Dr Atsuko Chiba is a scientist by day and a dream detective at night, working under the code name Paprika. When a device called at DC Mini, a device to the help psychiatric patients, is stolen Paprika and Detective Toshimi Konakawa’s dreams and reality begin to merge as they try to recover the device.

Recommendability for Paprika was mixed, although we all agreed the animation style was incredible and detailed. The complicated plot and surrealism isn’t going to be for everyone. Scores across the remaining categories give Paprika an overall rating of 3.54.
