cool movie- The Constant Gardener
Kurt Vonnegut once said that once you enter a love story into a novel, it ruins everything because automatically the novel becomes about the love story. Everything else becomes secondary. Well, I guess he's wrong this time. This is a movie that perfectly combines a love story, politics and spying. It is , of course, based on a novel by John Le Carre, perhaps the greatest writer living today. He wrote such classics as "The SPy who Came in from the Cold". Anyway, this one is about a British diplomat who loses his activist wife in Africa, in mysterious circumstances. I can't tell you anything more. The acting is great, Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz are amazing. Check this movie out.
