About the Film
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Shot partially in Tangier, Morocco, near the hometown of Yto Barrada, this psychological thriller explores the multiple layers of the subconscious. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a thief skilled at the dangerous practice of extracting information from dreams. His rare ability is a curse from which the only way to escape is a final job in which he must do the opposite: create a crime scene in the mind of an enemy by planting an idea.
