Darren Aronofsky's 'The Fountain'


"Mathematics is the language of nature. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. If you graph the numbers of any system, patterns emerge. Therefore, there are patterns everywhere in nature." - from Pi


Darren Aronofsky, the genius who brought us 'Pi' and 'Requiem for a Dream', has produced a movie called 'The Fountain', which may be one of the most epic and thought provoking movies since 'Space Odyssey 2001'. That's a pretty bold statement, I know. But that is the prognostication of many in the know. And after seeing what Aronofsky was capable of doing with the movie 'Pi' on a budget of a few thousand dollars I am inclined to believe it.

Just exactly what this movie is about has been kept a big secret. All that we know really is what can be gleaned from the recently released teaser trailer – and it doesn't tell us much. What we know is that the movie, starring Hugh Jackman, will span a period of 1,000 years, has themes of Mayan Mysticism, the quest for eternal life, and undying love.

The movie takes place in three periods. In the first period Jackman

is a Spanish Conquistador on a quest, the second period takes place in the present, and the third period takes place on another planet in the future.

The movie is expected to be released sometime early in 2006. You can watch the trailer here. Also a graphic novel of 'The Fountain' has just been released. This graphic novel is not based on the movie: it was produced independently because at the time that Aronofsky gave permission to make the novel he didn't believe that he was going to be able to make the movie.

The graphic novel(Fountain HC) is actully based on the orignal draft of the script, which the movie would have beed based on had Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchet not left the project. It had a march larger budget and subsequently a much larger scale e.g more Mayan wars and space adventures. Darren Aronofsky said that this movie is sort of like a "brother" of the original.
