Death is the road to awe

The Fountain is a 2006 American film directed by Darrel Aronofsky and starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz. The film comprises three storylines where Jackman and Weisz play different sets of characters: a modern-day scientist and his cancer-stricken wife, a conquistador and his queen, and a space traveler who hallucinates his lost love. The storylines, interwoven with use of march cuts and recurring visual motifs, reflect the themes of love and mortality.

Un-believable cinematography. A visual masterpiece on sheer imagination.
