A beautiful metaphor for the intimate relationship between life and death
I will try not to spoil the movie with the following descriptions but
rather avoid the confusion of some viewers expecting this movie to be
something that it's not. So first things first.
There is no timetravelling, no parallel universes/realities no fantasy
There is actually only one real story, of a neuroscientist trying
obsessively to save his dying wife who was suffering of brain cancer.
In her final days she was writing a novel(The Fountain) which was also
her way of processing her near death. Besides, the story was also
intended to make her husband understand why she lost her fear of death.
For that, she left the book unfinished and asked him to write the final
chapter. The story of the novel plays probably in the early 16th
century in Spain and Central America(Mayan territory) and is one of the
three, some reviewers are talking about. The "third" story is just a
visualization of what was going on within his mind/soul and is very

If you \"didn't get it\", it means you are intelligent.
I registered an account just to write a review of this movie. It is bad
bad bad bad BAD.
This movie is NOT "brilliant", nor "deep", nor "soulful", nor
"romantic". It certainly tries to be all of those things, and for the
supremely ignorant it will no doubt succeed. But for anyone who knows
anything about religion, particularly Eastern religions, it will only
be a trite and never-ending bunch of nonsense. Just because you throw
in some Buddhist symbology and meditation doesn't make a movie deep,
especially when you use it the wrong way. Meditation is done to ESCAPE
longing and desire. In real life, Wolverine would have thrown the ring
away, not put it on his finger. The scene of him meditating in the air
in the Mayan temple was especially absurd. As if this wasn't enough,
the director decided to throw in some pseudo-Christianity and Mayan
"First Father", finally reaching the Holy Grail of utter nonsense. And
God moved the Tree of Life from the Garden of Eden to the top of a
hidden Mayan Temple. Apparently God left afterward, because there is no
chance of redemption and meeting on distant shores, only floating in
space hallucinating with a dead tree.
Besides this, the "love" between Wolverine and Izzy was almost
imperceptible. And understandably so: Izzy is a moron who can't ever
stop babbling about the Mayans and the magic star and blah blah blah.
She can, however, write a book that contains just as much nonsense, and
which Wolverine finishes when he is not meditating in space, tattooing
himself, or fighting for "Spain". The best part of the movie is when
Izzy finally dies, because 1) she stops talking, and 2) you know the
movie can't possibly go on much longer, but mostly 1).
This movie sucks. Requiem was a powerful and memorable movie; The
Fountain makes you feel like Darren Aronofsky hates you personally. I
would rather be stuck in a space-bound bubble with a dead tree for
eternity than endure another showing of this awful movie..
