Directed by Christopher Nolan (USA, 2010, 148 min.). 35mm.

With its complex “dream-within-a-dream” narrative, Inception evokes the recursive architectural spaces often depicted in M. C. Escher’s work. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a thief with the rare ability to enter people’s dreams and steal their secrets from their subconscious. His skill has made him a hot commodity in the world of corporate espionage but has also cost him everything he loves. Cobb gets a chance at redemption when he is asked to perform a seemingly impossible task: plant an idea in someone’s mind. If he succeeds, it will be the perfect crime, but a dangerous enemy anticipates Cobb’s every move.
