At first sight The Fountain might seem to be very complex film but I think it's actually a very simple story. What I think Darren Aronofsky wanted to make was a different film that actually can provide us a different cinematic experience.
Although, I think this is the kind of film that requires more than one viewing or even two I might say. I am sure that I missed some interesting points that I'll pay more attention in future viewings.

It's very philosophical and full of symbolisms. Beautiful score and impressive acting by Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.

I can see why many people love this film but I can also see why many people hate it. It's not an easy film, if you've already watched it you'll understand what I mean.
I would like to give it a higher rate, I enjoyed watching it and I can definitely see the beauty in it, but I think it was too complicated for such a quite simple story.
