Stunning politcal film on a human level.

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.

When does someone's struggle to make a difference go too far? When that person ends up dead, apparently. That's what happens to Tessa (Rachel Wiesz) when she attempts to reveal a cover-up involving a pharmaceutical company being unfairly tested on African Natives.

The protagonist of the film is Justin Quayle played by the great Ralph Fiennes. He's an easy-going kind of guy, a Bri... read more

"May 6 "For a diplomat you're not a very good liar." "I haven't risen very high." "You're what passes for James Bond around here. Get Her Majesty's secret service to pull a few things. It's what you spies do, isn't it?" "Is it? Never really sure what it is we do." This was nothing more than a good movie. It was suspenseful enough, but it's not a film that will stay with me for a long time. "

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). Even though it didn’t became an instant classic like his previous feature, it was still critically heralded and Rachel Weisz even won an Academy award for her performance. 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
