Inception is one of the best movies I’ve seen. Every aspect of the film is near-perfect, especially the ultra-loud and dramatic instrumental theme repeated throughout the film… The sound of Inception.
The theme music was like nothing I’d ever heard before, but was somehow hauntingly familiar. Like somewhere deep in my sub-conscious I knew it had meaning, but just couldn’t remember what.
In the movie, whenever Leonardo and his gang need to wake up, the song “Non, je ne regrette nien” by Edith Piaf is played by their team member in the real world… In the person’s dream, they recognise the tune, and it triggers their waking.
What I bet you never realised is that the tune that triggers the wake up is being played throughout the entire movie constantly!
Christopher Nolan (the director) is messing with our subconscious the whole time.
Inception indeed… and extremely cool.
Watch the clip below and all shall become clear.
Hey that’s pretty cool.
How cleverishly creepy!

“While writing the screenplay, Nolan wrote in Édith Piaf’s “Non, je ne regrette rien” but almost took it out when he cast Marion Cotillard, who had just completed an Oscar-winning turn as Piaf in the 2007 film La Vie en rose. Zimmer convinced Nolan to keep it in the film and also integrated elements of the song into his score; in particular, the film’s iconic brass instrument fanfare resembles a slowed-down version of the song’s instrumentation.”
It’s not the same. It just resembles.
