Paprika is a wonderful tale of a girl who grows up in poverty and by sheer virtue of fortune, finally finds true love. The scenes recall some of the love stories of the 1930's and it is indeed filmed in the dark corridors of Italy. Paprika is wonderfully played by the new actress, I think this was her first appearance in Amato's films. She was also in "Midnight Obsession" reprising her European feminist role. Be sure to get a look at all the great costumes done by Vitorio Constanci who worked with such great names as Fellini, Visconti, Rosellini, and DeSica, designing fabulous period pieces before cutting off his finger in a sewing accident and thereby destroying his prosperous career. This is a film that will leave you in tears it is so memorable.
