The Constant Gardener
A taste of perfection! With great performances by Rachel Weisz (especially!) and Ralph Fiennes who both breath life into this breathtaking thriller about a corrupt pharmaceutical company who are conducting illegal experimentation's on the people of a tribal village in Africa. A real gem to behold .
It's a testament to Meireilles that the movie seems to slowly draw you in and hooks you as you along. It challenges the viewer to see the poverty and forces you to face your own complacency in the world - just like the film's main character. A powerful and moving story that I think will be an award favourite.

Emotionally empty, anti-capitalist hoo-ha about a looney marxist conspiracy theory that the western world is out to get the 3rd world. The truth is, thanks to modern medicine, devolped in the west, the average life span in Africa has more than doubled in the last 100 years. Boring B.S.
