Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Meirelles clearly trusts his actors, particularly Fiennes and Weisz: The plot of The Constant Gardener is fairly intricate, but in the end, the story is told mostly in their faces.
Fresh: ... Ralph Fiennes gives one of the year's subtlest, yet most exciting, screen performances ...
Fresh: The Constant Gardener is beautifully structured, an artful mix of forward motion and flashbacks.
Rotten: Fiennes has always been good, but in author John le Carre's 2000 postimperial African thriller, he may have found his signature role.
An emotional, beautiful, and thrilling movie that you can't walk away from. You have to endure every second of it. Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Wiesz are amazing and each moment of this movie touches you deeply. Their love will make you smile but their horrific ordeals will make you cry. This is an amazingly beautiful movie that I urge everyone to watch.
The Constant Gardener
While fictional, the plot of The Constant Gardener explores the deep truths of the evils of global corporatism, government corruoption and the pharmaceutical industry. It offers great adventure, drama and a stunning love story as well. It is gripping from the opening scene, brilliantly filmed & edited, with unmatched casting and acting.
I agree with a previous review. The movie is supposedly fantastic, but my wife and I could not hear the actors speak. $4 I'll never see again...
