The Fountain

An unforgettable,epic love story that spans a thousand years...heard this one before.
Just watched The fountain,a Darren Aronofsky movie starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.I bet you didn't know about this one despite it's big cast.

The plot follows three interwoven narratives,the past,the present and the future. One aspect the movie shines in is the visuals. Although there is nothing great in the mayan portrayal(We've seen better),the future part in which hugh travels thru space in his sphere is great. The gold hue gives it a very cool look.The yoga pose is odd though.

The story didn't make much sense to me. Guess the philosophical angle is too much for a movie novice like me.
Hugh Jackman shines and Rachel...well she's a shiner already. Great acting.

I heard minimum CG was used. Macro photography of minute organisms was used extensively which proved both cost effective and beautiful.
