    I can watch this over and over again!

    I love this movie. Both Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz do an amazing job. The plot draws you, making you feel emotionally involved with the characters and their plight.

    Intelligent, Adult Drama

    The Constant Gardner is about as far from a mindless Hollywood movie that you can get. It has a logical, well drawn plot that is masterfully directed. The drama and action are inherent to the story - not just tacked on. If you like international thrillers, this film is one of the smartest movies you will ever come across.

    Beautifully filmed with a very disturbing take home message

    If you feel like you've lost out on a corporate entity to hate now that big tobacco has been reigned in, look no further ~ big pharma rears it's ugly head in this well acted, well written film shot in Kenya. The beauty of the surroundings almost make you forget that evil is a foot. Rachel Weiss is magnificent as the rebellious human rights advocate/diplomat's wife, using literally *everything* she has to further her cause. While the story is fiction, like the novel on which it is based, the truth is not always so far away and it makes you question how much we value human lives in developing countries if they can be sacrificed to save lives in our own communities.

    A Disappointing Movie

    With all the hype this movie received in its television commercials, and considering its cast, this movie did not live up to its advance billing. Its message was too hard to figure out to be enjoyable. Don't waste your money like I did by buying it before you see it. Rent it first.
