This review is from: The Constant Gardener [DVD]  (DVD)
If you're into fast action, fast paced, explosive movies, then this is not one for you.
It is a slow paced, thoughtful movie. Set in Africa, amid a storyline of big businees and corruption it has some uncomfortable moments - particularly when mounted bandits sweep down on an unprotected village - strains of Darfur and the genocide occuring there.
Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz are excellent in the lead roles. Particulary Ms. Weisz, having only seen her in the Mummy movies, her acting skills are a revelation.
The film is based on a novel by John Le Carre. Could it happen?
Watch the extra features and make up your mind.

I strongly urge you to get this film
similar topic but an everyman not a toff and with more political edge and a kick in the head ending.
The New Protocol has and is the victim of corporate censorship in the UK a parallel to the film itself
this disc is a Canadian issue R1 DVD now only on Amazon USA.
