The Fountain is, at it’s core, the love story between a man and woman that are destined to love each other forever but be parted by circumstance again and again. The three distinct story lines that are told within the movie are nonlinear and yet have so much to do with one another that they do intersect and interact with each other throughout the movie in very subtle ways. For all that Tom, Tomas, and Tommy try to save the love of their life however they fall just short of the goal and come to realize that death is inevitable, as is the life that comes as a result.
It’s a very deep film that you need to pay close attention to.
CGI - Film
10. There was no CGI used in this film.
Or if there was it was very little since Aronofsky wanted to preserve the film as much as possible and avoid using any cheesy effects.
Mayan - Extras - Mayans
9. Twenty of the Mayan extras were actual Mayans.
Fernando Hernandez was the only one that spoke English and he played the Lord of Xibalba. Plus, the Mayans blessed the set before proceeding.
Leads - Rate
8. The two leads agree to work at a reduced rate.
The budget for this film was fairly low but Weisz and Jackman believed in it so they were willing to take a cut in pay.
Film - Brad - Pitt - Cate - Blanchette
7. The film originally starred Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchette.
Pitt and Aronofsky had unsettled creative differences and Pitt walked away from the movie to make Troy. When Jackman was cast Blanchette was replaced by Weisz.
Hugh - Jackman - Hair - Head - Chest
6. Hugh Jackman had to shave off every hair on his head and chest...
