From the director of Requiem for a Dream and PI comes another powerful and earth shattering movie.

Smart and profoundly moving film that deals with eschatology, metaphysics, and love.

You will want to watch this several times.

It is one of the movies strongest points.

Deeply affecting, Transcendent, Melancholy that will last for quite sometime on your playlist.

Superb performance by Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.
I know that Jackman excels in almost every role but Rachel Weisz was equally fantastic.

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.
