The Constant Gardener

I continue to maintain that film, when done correctly, is one of the higher art forms available towards human expression. The ability to blend the visual, audible, and written arts into one--creates a highly poignant medium able to pierce the emotional barrier and cause intellectual affect. The list of such films is bound to vary from critic to critic, however I am certain that "The Constant Gardener", will have a secure listing. Directed by Fernando Meirelles, the director of the Internationally acclaimed "City of God" (2002), and starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz: The Constant Gardener follows a British Diplomat who seeks to uncover the truth behind his wife's brutal murder and in the process discovers her secret yet admirable life, and a wider brutality towards Africa she worked to stop. Beautiful cinemotography and a bending plotline capture the emotional energy behind the characters and I assure you that it is a film that you will be thinking about for days thereafter. And following a few months after "Hotel Rwanda", "The Constant Gardener" continues the work of raising awareness of the fragility and beauty of Africa, and how so often the West's meddlings are its greatest problems.
