The Constant Gardener

Sinopsis dari IMDB:

Based on the best-selling John le Carré novel and from the Academy Award-nominated director of “City of God.” 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 his late wife’s infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. 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.

Secara gue:
Mengingatkan pada film-filmnya Anthony Minghella kayak English Patient dan Cold Mountain . Film-film yang bertemakan kedahsyatan cinta namun berakhir tragis. Kayaknya emang castingnya nggak mungkin nggak Ralph Fiennes. Spesialisasi film drama cinta tragis. Masih ingat The End of The Affair?

Inti film ini adalah cinta. Cinta lelaki dan wanita serta cinta manusia pada sesama, meski berbeda warna kulit. Dan cinta diadu dengan keserakahan, sisi gelap manusia dari jaman purba…
