The final feature directed by anime legend Satoshi Kon is a dazzling tour through the Unconscious that takes the genre to new heights of imagination.

"Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue) is an anime director with a lot to say - an engineer of delirious, dizzy trips through the psyche, but a spiky, tough social critic too. Whether you're an anime fiend or an inquisitive filmgoer, for 90 minutes, PAPRIKA continually makes you see things in a new light. How often do you get to say that about a film?" - Alex Naylor (The Guardian)
