He drinks the sap flowing from the bark. But in a reenactment of the Mayan creation myth recounted earlier, flowers and grass burst forth from his body and he literally gives rise to new life. In space, the tree finally dies just before arrival, much to the horror of the version of Tom tending it. A final apparition of Izzi appears, comforting him in the face of his acceptance of death. The star goes supernova, engulfing the ship and everything within. The traveler's body, being engulfed by the star dying inside the nebula, is disintegrated and absorbed by the tree Live model video chat game it to flourish back to life.
Izzi's apparition picks Seeking a beautiful woman in springs fruit from the new tree of life and hands it to Tom, who plants it in Izzi's grave. Narrative structure[ edit ] The three stories are interwoven with match cuts and recurring visual motifs ; Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz play the main characters in all three narratives. Related to this path, Darren Aronofsky described the core of the film as "a very simple love story" about a man and a woman in love, with the woman's life cut short. The director researched people who were dying young, and learned from doctors and caregivers that such patients find new ways of coping.
Aronofsky observed that the patients often die more alone because their families cannot recognize what happens with them, calling it "an incredible tragedy": Instead of facing this tragedy in terror, she is coming to terms with what is happening to her Many patients actually start opening up to the possibility of what's happening to them, but there's very little vocabulary to help them deal We decided to expand it with this woman [Izzi] offering a gift to her husband as a metaphor that tells him where she's come to in her awe inspiring journey towards death. Hopefully through time he'll be able to understand it and basically get where she is.
The film begins with a paraphrase of Genesis 3: Hugh Jackman emphasized the importance of the Fall in the film: We live in a world of duality. Husband, wife, we relate everything. And much of our lives are spent not wanting to die, be poor, experience pain. It's what the movie's about. He inquired of the Fall, "If they had drank from the Tree of Life [along with the Tree of Knowledge] what would have separated them from their maker? So what makes us human is actually death. It's what makes us special. Rachel Weisz joined the cast in August after Cate Blanchett moved on to other projects. In Aprilhe entered negotiations with Warner Bros. The group also visited Tikala jungle location featured in the film Star Wars.
The start date for production was tentatively set in summer Watson petitioned independent production companies for support and was able to enlist Regency Enterprises for assistance. However, Crowe, worn out from recently completing Master and Commander: The Far Side of the Worlddeclined. Pictures, announced that The Fountain would cease production,  with Blanchett receiving compensation for her time and the Australian crew being fired from the halted project. When he looked over the books he used to research for The Fountain, he decided to return to The Fountain, feeling closer to it creatively than the other possible projects.
Without a studio and an actor, he decided to write a "no-budget" version of the film, using his experiences filming Pi and Requiem for a Dream with small budgets. When Aronofsky saw The Matrix inhe considered it a film that redefined the science fiction genre. He sought to make a science fiction film that would explore new territory in the genre like The Matrix and its predecessors Star Wars and Aronofsky had in mind a science fiction film that would go beyond the other films whose plots were driven by technology and science. The director said, "We've seen it all.
It's not really interesting to audiences anymore. The interesting things are the ideas; the search for God, the search for meaning. He began reflecting on human mortality, "That was a really heavy-duty emotional time. I know it's a very young age, but turning thirty marks when your twenties are over and you could start considering, 'Wow, one of these days I'm actually going to die. He shared the concept with Handel, his undergraduate school roommate at Harvard University. Handel earned a Ph. D in neuroscience from New York University but was uncertain about a future in neuroscience.
He recalled the discussion, "Darren and I just started talking about the story. We kept wanting to talk more about it as the story kept getting bigger. I decided to make some life choices to continue working with Darren, because it was so much fun. For The Fountain, Aronofsky was inspired by a research trip he took to Guatemala with Handel to learn about Mayan history and philosophy. He felt less inclined to mimic the scale and rewrote the battle to be mainly between Jackman's conquistador character and the Mayans. The director realized that, with one man against the army, the rewrite was a suitable metaphor for his film's theme of a man defying odds to do the impossible and conquer death.
They attended brain surgeries with the actors. With the research in place, Aronofsky said, "We decided which things we wanted to be purely factual and which things we wanted to bend. He said, "It was more about painting a relationship between a queen and her warrior, and just using that for more fantasy reasons. The director met with Jackman, who sought "a role that could show a lot of dimension," and cast him into the lead role in The Fountain. Jackman practiced t'ai chi for seven months to demonstrate it in a second scene. He also practiced yoga for over a year to achieve the lotus position for scenes set in space.
For these scenes when he is seen in the position in mid-air, he was immersed in a swimming pool and harnessed to a rig that rotated him degrees so his clothes floated freely about him. As much as I'd read the script and theorized and practiced philosophy, I knew in that moment that I was so not ready for death. As the conquistador, Jackman was upright and forward-leaning to evoke an unstoppable nature. As the scientist, the actor hunched over with a dedicated focus on his character's work, being weighed down by the "world on his shoulders. The director, who was in a relationship with the actress, had originally hesitated to show the studio signs of favoritism in casting Weisz.
Burstyn and Margolis appeared in Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, and the director wrote into the script roles for both of them. One of the twenty, a real-life spiritual leader, was cast as the Maya spiritual leader in the film. To research the film, Darren Aronofsky took a trip to Mexico and Guatemala, where he visited Mayan ruins. The design of the space traveler's ship was inspired in part by Biosphere 2 near Tucson, Arizona. The film's locations, with the exception of scenes filmed at a museum and at a farmhouse, were built on the Montreal sound stage.
The sets included the 16th century jungle settings and the bubble-shaped spacecraft containing the tree of life and its garden. One material would be moved into place instead of the heavy equipment, and with the other materials partitioned off, a light source was used with the preferred material. Silver was used for scenes in which the spacecraft moved through the stars, and gold was used for when it entered the nebula. The tree was based on Kabbalah 's Sefirotwhich depicts a "map" of creation to understand the nature of God and how he created the world ex nihilo out of nothing. The Sefirot Tree, being two to three hundred feet tall in lore, had to be resized for The Fountain to fit in the camera's frame.
The tree set itself had been a collaboration between Chinlund, Aronofsky, and cinematographer Matthew Libatique to create the appropriate design, particularly the palette in comparison to the biospheric ship that carries the tree in the astronaut period. Gold represents "the Mayans, a sort of fool's gold, a false truth";  Aronofsky explained the choice, "When you see gold, it represents materialism and wealth and all these things that distract us from the true journey that we're on. Weisz's characters are white, and wear white or are enveloped in white light to accentuate this presentation. Secondary colors are green, representing the color of life, and red, representing death.
The 16th century conquistador's tale reflected triangles through pyramids and constellations, the 21st century researcher's period reflected rectangles through doors, windows, and computer screens, and the 26th century contemplative's journey reflected circles and spheres through the spacecraft and stellar bodies. Libatique, who worked with Aronofsky throughout the s,  prepared for over a year for The Fountain when Aronofsky tried to produce the film for the first time. When production restarted on a smaller budget, Libatique felt that the more budget-conscious approach resulted in a better film, "I think the streamlining of the film helped us tell the story more effectively.
It's been stripped down to its core, to what it's really about: He originally sought to show only a silhouette of the man until the second of the film's three acts, but he chose not to be so extreme, wanting to be more communicative to the audience. The movement was presented less aggressively in the film; Jackman's characters are seen in silhouette at the beginning, kept out of key light. In each of the three periods, the lighting on Jackman's characters is initially dim and gradually grows brighter as the storylines unfold. Libatique said Aronofsky preferred the eyeline match"Darren is big on eyelines, and if you sacrifice an eyeline on an angle, he feels it nullifies the shot and de-emphasizes the performances.
