It’s pretty neat that the Dream Team’s wake-up song is Edith Piaf’s ”Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” since Marion Cotillard, who plays Mal, won an Oscar portraying Piaf in La Vie en Rose. Cooler still? According to a viral video (and confirmed by composer Hans Zimmer), Inception‘s foghornlike music cue sounds a lot like a slowed-down version of the song.
