Why Is The Fountain Rated PG-13?

The film’s combination of three different plots makes the opening sequences of this film difficult to follow at times. Scenes of the Spanish Inquisition include depictions of men being speared with javelins, stabbed, hung, beaten and mutilated. The film also portrays death, grief and the desperate actions of those trying to prevent death. Various religious beliefs about death and immortality are explored. A married couple engages in passionate kissing. Some profanities and a strong sexual expletive are contained in the script.
