Cobb doesn't tell Ariadne what he is dreaming about, but she sneaks into his dream and gets and insight on his tale with Mal. this has a big effect on Ariadne and she is extremely worried for the job ahead. The part of the movie is filmed with good production element, such as lighting and close up shots and POV. When Ariadne sneaks into his dream and appears in a hallway the shot type turns into a POV of Ariadne's eyes and we see what she is looking at, and that is Cobb talking to his wife Mal who is clearly upset and distraught. When Cobb see's Ariadne looking he immeaditley gets up and walks towards her and the scene turns tense with some really good adcting and background music. they walk into a lift and it has levels of Cobbs life every level has different lighting to set the mood.

They also kidnap his fathers assistant, Browning as they begin to plant the idea that his father wanted him to break up the business. Lighting was dark, rainy day. A lot of close up and mid shots as there is the gun chase scene leading up to being in the warehouse where they kidnap Fischer.

1.3. Level 2

1.3.1. Hotel Level Dreamt by Arthur Here FIscher is tricked into believing that Browning is a traitor trying to seal the information in his mind and unknowingly agrees to assist in his own inception.

Saito also dies from bullet wounds in the first dream, also sending him to Limbo. A lot of long over view shots overlooking the whole mountain, mes-en-scene with the windy environment, lots of snow, whit clothing for characters, skis to move around on. The set of the fortress is very big and made of tough materials demonstrating a secure place where this thought is located.
