Constant Gardener R2 (Uk Import) - Meirelles, Fernando
Releasedatum: 13 maart 2006
In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz) is found brutally murdered. Tessa's travelling companion, an African doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and un-ambitious colleague Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) will leave the matter to them, but they could not be more wrong. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumours of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents to learn the horrifying truth of his wife's death. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, he will risk his own life, stopping at nothing to uncover and expose the truth - a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined. Based on John Le Carre's novel, The Constant Gardener is a breathtaking yet tragic love story told in retrospect and set against the political backdrop of an economic pharmaceutical conspiracy feasting upon the low value of life in Africa. Shifting back and forth, the romance between Justin and Tessa is wonderfully portrayed, building a vivid, gripping and heightened, yet justified, paranoia as the film develops.
