I once watched a movie of which I only remember a few things... The most present memory is this huge golden tree... Or at least I think the tree itself was golden. Then scene in which this tree appeared was golden, too. The sky was golden, the lights, there were golden particles and I think there was a man crawling around the tree...

This scene appeared several times in the movie, maybe 4 or 5 times... Unfortunately I don't remember the plot... Another thing I remember that it was a rather sad, dramatic movie. I also remember a woman lying in a bed, maybe she was deathly ill, I'm not sure about this. There might be the possibility that this woman and her illness was very important, there were often people visiting her.

I'm not sure about the ill woman, but I definitely remember this bizarre, surreal scene of a tree surrounded by gold.

I hope someone knows which movie that was, because I'd like to watch it again.

I disagree with @Coomie's remark. To clarify: The Fountain is not a science-fiction movie, this movie is about the power of meditation, the development of siddhis and expansion of consciousness, the Kundalini Awakening of tantric yoga and spiritual enlightenment, the third eye, this movie even has its roots in martial arts. The love story is just an illusion, the whole movie is about the Māyā of Life. This is a very profound and hermetic movie. Few movies really describe the Kundalini phenomena. 1. The Fountain 2. The Celestine Prophecy 3. Little Buddha 4. Matrix 5. Blueberry Search for "Kunda –  Redger Apr 24 '12 at 16:22

Not actually seen the film but reading this could it be, The Fountain

Had Hugh Jackman as the lead and it just sprung to mind from the trailer.

That is totally it! Thanks a lot! :) This is what I remembered all the time but didn't know the title of the movie: blog.png-online.de/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/… –  Exa Feb 20 '12 at 19:33
Just reading the first sentence from the question, that's also the first movie that came to mind. It likely the most bizarre movie I ever saw. –  Tshepang Feb 21 '12 at 9:59
