4 out of 10 The Constant Gardener
Shane from Wicklow, 11 Aug 2008
John le Carre's story of an affiable diplomat who is determined to get to the bottom of a dastardly secret involving his wife's murder, big corporate and corruption politicians. Africa provides a stunning backdrop. Ralph Fiennes & Rachel Weisz are superb. A great movie, very entertaining.

3.5 out of 10 Good film
Michael from Cork, 04 Jul 2008
A thoughtful, slow moving drama where the two lead characters excel. Africa looks amazing as a backdrop to a story which demonises the pharmaceutical industry and their thirst for profits which ultimaely costs lives. Not a DVD to throw on for a few hours of fun.

4 out of 10 Good movie
John from Dublin, 14 Dec 2007
Very good movie with good performances by two great leads. The only fault is perhaps that the two characters seemed a tad over-caricaturised. But this aside, the plot, performances and backdrop make this a very good film.

1 out of 10 Found it irritating
David from Cork, 26 Apr 2007
Tried to watch it a few times but found the main actors too irritating. All seemed a little pre- 9/11 and terribly British. My wife enjoyed it and read the John Le Carre book after seeing it but that was a while ago.

4.5 out of 10 Good Film
Dean & Steffi from Meath, 18 Dec 2007
A bit of a slow burner but in all a really good film. Really well made thriller and great acting and chemistry from Feines and Wiess. If you like serious acting and good suspense, Definitely one to watch ;-)

What's it about....
In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz) is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a 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 unambitious colleague Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to them. They could not be more wrong.... Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of...
