Plot: Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, The Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world.

Strange, sad, a little frightening perhaps, the horror of the Inquisition, but also beautiful...a story within a story about loss, and searching to find the loved one again. Where do we go? Where do we come from? It's a fable. Visually stunning, haunting soundtrack, with something of 'Excalibur' about it.
