The Fountain


Director Darren Aronofsky’s movie is set in three different centuries and jumps back and forth between them, with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz as incarnations of two basic characters, Tomas and Isabel. The myth of the tree of life is what holds them together; in the 16th century a conquistador is looking for it, in modern times a researcher finds its powers and some time in the future an astronaut is taking the tree far into space. Ambitious and spectacular at times, a little out there but not as moving as it should be.

2006-U.S. 95 min. Color. Written and directed byĀ Darren Aronofsky. Music: Clint Mansell. Cast: Hugh Jackman (Tomas/Tommy/Tom Creo), Rachel Weisz (Isabel/Izzi Creo), Ellen Burstyn (Lillian Guzetti), Cliff Curtis, Mark Margolis, Sean Patrick Thomas.

Trivia: In the early stages of this project, Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett were hired for the leads.
