This film is beautifully slow paced and encapsulating. A startling film that deals with issues deeply embedded within all of our lives; love, trust, and the search for truth. Exploring the point to which we are prepared to stick to our integrity and follow our convictions, whilst also tackling enormous political and economical issues of illegal drug production and trials on the poor of Kenya.

British diplomat Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) meets the impulsive activist Tessa (Rachel Weisz), marries her quickly at her behest and takes her on diplomatic mission in Kenya. When Tessa is brutally murdered, Justin decides to investigate her death against the strong wish of his superiors to let the matter quietly disappear. He discovers a powerful mystery involving the members of the British High Commission and the not-so-savory business practices of the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. In the process of learning the secrets of his powerful enemies, Justin must learn all of his wife's many secrets as well.

"10.1 Areena new Kappas, varsin mainio löytö. Rachel Weisz ja roolinsa toi kyllä aika vahvasti The Fountainin mieleen, mikä ei ole huono juttu yhtään."

A good movie

“Since I am a huge fan of ‘Cidade de Deus’, I was really anxious to see Fernando Meirelles directing follow up. It was, this time, an international production, a spy thriller written by John Le Carré, and he had also a top cast at his disposal (Ralph Fiennes, Rachel Weisz, Danny Huston, Bill Nighy, Pete Postlethwaite).

After all this hype, I was pretty excited and I had some huge expectations but, to be honest, I was slightly disappointed. I mean, I thought it was pretty good with some solid directing and all the actors were really good. There was a also a good tense mood but I thought the plot was rather underwhel” read more
