"THE CONSTANT GARDENER, a thriller with something on its mind, confirms the talents of Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles..." Movieline's Hollywood Life "[T]he ever-extraordinary Fiennes is the most quietly outstanding of the lot, miraculously showing us how his character literally ages with grief." Premiere "[Meirelles] brightens the author's wide, dark field with rich color....The movie is smart, serious, and adult about something that matters..." Entertainment Weekly "Meirelles emerges with one of the year's best and most provocative movies. Long after it's over, you still feel its sting." Rolling Stone "[U]nusually satisfying....Mr. Meirelle's film actually bothers to say something about global politics....This is a supremely well-executed piece of popular entertainment that is likely to linger in your mind and may even trouble your conscience." New York Times "THE CONSTANT GARDENER is a masterwork of suspense, romance and political intrigue. It is a taut and gripping thriller that dazzles the eyes and engages the brain in a way that few recent films have come close to approaching."USA Today "THE CONSTANT GARDENER is as much an incisive post-mortem of a relationship as it is a politically charged procedural." Sight and Sound Ranked #17 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "[T]his is an engrossing, intelligent film." Uncut "Movies that try to juggle a message of political or social significance with a love story often can't manage either, so the makers of this thriller deserve extra plaudits for their tender and intelligent handling of both."
