A thief, who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
The movie's runtime (2 hours and 28 min) is a reference to the original length of Édith Piaf's song "Non, je ne regrette rien", which lasts (on its first recorded edition) 2 minutes and 28 seconds.
He was delirious but asked for you by name. Show him...
Japanese Security Guard: He was carrying nothing but this...

Saito: Are you here to kill me?
In the first scene, Saito spins Cobb's totem clockwise. When the same scene is shown at the end of the movie, the totem spins anticlockwise (counterclockwise).
The movie title never appears in the beginning of the movie, but appears three times during the end credits. Once at the beginning, again after the main actors and developers, and once more at the very end.
