10 curiosities Origin (Inception) as fascinating as Christopher Nolan’s film

MADRID, Jul 14 (CulturaOcio) –

No one has ever immersed themselves so fully and in such a complex way in the world of dreams as they did. Christopher Nolan con Origen (Inception). Tape starring Leonardo DiCaprio It is still a headache for many viewers to this day. A title that, in addition to its intricate plot, hides many really interesting secrets related to its production.

– Michael Caine explains (again) the ending of Origin

Putting aside its ambiguous ending or its incredible Oscar-winning visuals, In Origin Nolan mixes the dream world and futuristic technology to plot a plot in which dreams are confused with the most sophisticated espionage and robbery cinema.

– The new Origin theory turns the whole movie upside down

A high-end cinematic gem which, of course, has a good handful of fun facts. We recovered ten of them:

1. NOLAN TOOK 10 YEARS TO WRITE THE MOVIE

Nolan is one of those directors, like Tarantino, who is in no rush to write his scripts. For El Truco Final he spent five years working on the story. And time doubled in Origin. In 2011, the filmmaker revealed to Deadline that he had a hard time getting the story to look really compelling. But everything was solved when Cobb’s wife and children entered the scene.

2. THE INITIALS OF THE CHARACTERS FORM AN ACRONYM

All the names of the characters of Origin hide some secret, such as that of Ariadne (Ellen Page) who takes her name from the mythological character who helped Theseus out of the minotaur’s labyrinth. But when the initials of each of the six protagonists (Dom, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Mal and Saito) are combined the word that is obtained is DREAMS (dreams). If the names Peter Ariadne and Yusuf are added to this, the result is DREAMS PAY (something like “dreams are paid”). Disturbing.

3. NOLAN DID NOT WANT TO FILM IN 3D

During the filming of Origin, and given the growing success of 3D technology in the wake of Avatar, Nolan considered shooting the movie with this process. However, he ruled it out because he thought it would be too distracting from the plot. As revealed to Deadline in 2011, later it was decided to include 3D in post-productionBut the idea was also scrapped because it would have been too expensive to get the result that the ever-ambitious filmmaker was really looking for.

4. HE JUST USED CGI IN THE ACTION SEQUENCES

Watching the movie, it would be easy to think that the vast majority of sequences, especially the most spectacular ones, were recreated by CGI. However, it was the opposite. Almost all the effects were done on set. Only about 500 shots of the final footage include digital retouching. The rest were recreated on the set itself, including the spectacular hotel fight sequence with spinning and anti-gravity effect, as well as the meeting of Cobb and Ariadne in the market, where everything explodes.

5. FILMING DURING A ROYAL AVALANCHE

These actual effects also include the sequence in the fortress of dreams, for which an avalanche was generated placing explosives in the mountains of Calgary, Canada. Although the team had doubts about whether the snow would act at the right time, a strong storm coincided with the days of filming, putting even more snow on the landscape. This scene, by the way, is inspired by classic James Bond action sequences.

6. TOM HARDY DIDN’T KNOW TO SKI BEFORE ORIGIN

But if anyone had a particularly bad time with the snow scenes that was Tom Hardy. The protagonist of Venom and Warrior did not know how to ski before filming began. As revealed on the Chatty Man show, “to avoid losing the opportunity to work for the first time with Nolan, Hardy had to learn to ski on set. And in some sequences he was even tied to the back of a snowmobile. “

7. HANS ZIMMER WAS INSPIRED BY EDITH PIAF

As important as the images of Origin is its soundtrack, the work of the ya legendario Hans Zimmer. Zimmer was originally inspired by the trombone section of a version of ‘No I regret nothing’ by Edith Piaf from 1956. And although Nolan was reticent because his star Marion Cotillard She had played the French singer in the French film Life in Pink, finally giving in to her composer’s ideas.

8. ORIGIN IS AN ALLEGORY OF THE ART OF MAKING FILM

The layers and layers that make up the Origin plot they are, as in the dream world itself, increasingly surprising. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Nolan explained that while putting the finishing touches to the script, he realized that he had unconsciously created an allegory of the process of making a movie.

Each character fulfills a typical film crew role, with Cobb serving as director, Arthur as producer, Ariadne as production designer, Eames as lead actor, and Saito as investor. “When trying to write a team-based creative process, I wrote the one I know best“added the filmmaker.

9. JAPANESE TELEVISION EXPLAINED THE LAYERS OF DREAM

Although in Origin the characters spend much of the time explaining to the viewer, and to themselves, how the layers of dreams work, even so, the plot gets a bit confusing. That at least should have thought those responsible for Japanese television, since during the broadcasts of the film they added some posters in the lower corner of the screen that indicated at all times in which layer of the dream the action was taking place to avoid audience confusion … and steal some magic out of the experience?

10. THERE IS A TABLE GAME BASED ON ORIGIN

For all those fans who want to get fully into the plot of Origin and the dream world, there is a board game called ‘Dream Heist’ in which players dive into increasingly complex layers with the intention of implanting an idea in the mind of their sleeping target. Although the game takes many elements of the film, from its premise to the totems, it is not licensed by Warner Bros. But it can be purchased on its official website.
