Paprika

 (2006)

Paprika Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

When a machine that allows therapists to enter into people's dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts is stolen, the research facility is sent into an uproar and all hell breaks loose. In the wrong hands, the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer's personality while they are asleep. Only a young female doctor named Atsuko Chiba can stop it. Entering the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, code named "Paprika," she attempts to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention.

For more about Paprika and the Paprika Blu-ray release, see Paprika Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Megumi Hayashibara, Toru Emori, Katsunosuke Hori, Tōru Furuya, Akio ďtsuka

Paprika Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The look of Paprika is purposely softened and ethereal, but the transfer perfectly captures the film's wonderful color palette - from the cooler indoor and laboratory color tones to the vibrant palette of the more surreal dream sequences. Using an MPEG-2 encode, the bitrate averages around 25 Mbps, and looks fantastic. Black levels and contrast are exceptional, shadow detail is impeccable and there isn't a hint if any compression artifacts to be found in this transfer. One area in animation that can really show up the compression artifacts is in solid dark colors such as an indigo background, etc. This release shows no mosquito effect, no posterization, and certainly no edge enhancement. In effect, Paprika should stand for a long while as one of the reference BD titles for hand-drawn animÚ.


Paprika Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

This release boasts a rather impressive array of languages; two lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 tracks in Japanese and English, as well as Spanish, Portuguese, and French in Dolby Digital 5.1. Another appreciated feature is the inclusion of the literally translated English subtitles, as well as the adapted English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese, Korean, and Thai.

For review purposes, I watched the feature in Japanese with literal English subtitles, and thereafter sampled a few chapters in the English dub. Though the dialogue is kept almost entirely to the center channel, it is an overall aggressive mix with a high level of ambience in the surround channels and many discrete special effects either panned to the rear or panned around the entire room. In fact, even the film's mostly-techno soundtrack has discrete instrumentation mixed into the surround channels, particularly during the film's main theme. Dialogue is natural and clear, conveying the full range of the human voice and never getting lost in the louder, more special effects-driven sequences. The LFE channel is used sparingly, but with great effect when it is employed; the soundtrack can hardly be described as "boomy," however. Though the mastering is generally relaxed, flat, warm and easy on the ears, there is just a slight boost in the high frequencies that is most apparent in the numerous "parade" dream sequences. This slight anomaly is hardly a deterrent from the overall enjoyment of the sound of this well recorded, mixed and mastered soundtrack.
