For a simple love story its way over the top and convoluted with nothing really to say other than live everyday as your last. I was really entertained by it, but .. i guess its where you stand. It gets away with it, because the fantasy stuff is all book form - where i guess imagination can run riot. I think if you go with it, its great, even i found it entertaining, but its almost shockingly so bad, i almost turned it off. it just about gets away it. Worth a watch, but good? probably not.
This is my semi-regular reminder that The Fountain is an excellent film which is often misunderstood because the blurb on the back of the box misleadingly describes it as a love story across time.
I think it is testment to DA, that it practically all comes together. He knew exactly what he wanted to do. and did it.
