Darren Aronofsky stunned audiences with his adventurous debut film pi - which Time Out said was 'smart enough to blow your mind, with or without drugs'. His new film is a science-fiction tale that astonishes with the boldness of its ideas, and gatecrashes the senses in its execution.

Set well beyond the Star-Gate of Kubrick's film, The Fountain is set in a spacecraft whose pilot has led two other existences: one, as a scientist striving to find a cure for his wife's terminal cancer; the other, as a Spanish conquistador in the New World striving to find the Fountain of Youth for Queen Isabella. Like Donnie Darko and Memento, the film shifts backwards and forwards in time, culminating in a burst of transcendance.

From the home-made bespoke world of pi, Darren Aronofsky now steps onto the epic stage with a film that is bound to be one of the most original of this year.
