I watched the Fountain on HBO and found the movie to short which resulted in frequently bouncing from 1521 to present time to 2500. Hugh Jackman begins as a conquistador during Cortez's conquest of the Aztec in 1521. Instead of looking for treasure Hugh is searching for the "Tree of Life" to save his queen from the inquisition. The movie moves to modern times with Hugh a scientist trying to save his wife who is dying of a brain tumor. The final time period is 2500 with Hugh an astronaut in a sphere floating around with what appears to be a dead "Tree of Life". The DVD cover describes the movies as a warrior, scientist and explorer coming to terms with life, love, death and rebirth. I didn't come away with that understanding with this movie in its current form. This could be a good movie and hopefully the studio will allow the director to add the missing film to complete the story line.
