是Edith Piaf 的 "Non, je ne regrete rien"
What is the significance of the song "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien?"
"Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" is the signature song of the French songstress Édith Piaf (1915-1963). The song was written for Piaf in 1956 by Charles Dumont and Michel Vaucaire and recorded by Piaf in 1960. It appears in her biography film La môme (2007) (retitled La Vie en Rose for English-language release) and its title translates into English as "No, I regret nothing." In Inception, "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" is used to signal the various characters that it is time to wake up and/or "kick up" into a higher dream level. It's an appropriate song for Inception because of the theme of regret that weaves through the film. According to the Wall Street Journal, Christopher Nolan, the writer and director of Inception, had incorporated the use of this song into the script from early on. Marion Cotillard, who plays Mal, also portrayed Piaf in La Vie en Rose (and won an Academy Award for it), but Nolan states that this connection is purely coincidence. The melody of "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" is also echoed in the score of Inception by being slowed down.
