Review
In the near future, a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment called PT has been invented. Through a device called the "DC Mini" it is able to act as a "dream detective" to enter into people's minds and explore their unconscious thoughts. Before the government can pass a bill authorizing the use of such advanced psychiatric technology, one of the prototypes is stolen. In the wrong hands the DC Mini can be used to completely annihilate a dreamer's personality while they still sleep, so scientist Dr Atsuko Chiba must enter the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, Paprika, in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention. Based on the original story by Yasutaka Tsutsui, 'Paprika' is an immensely stylish and surreal journey, an absorbing Japanese anime that's very much for the grown ups.
