A scene from 'The Constant Gardener'

Three stars (out of four)

Wow, what a movie. It has a little of everything in it for everyone.

"The Constant Gardener" is filled with conspiracies of epic proportion. The film is set in Africa among the lives of people who live ways we could never imagine, yet alongside some beautiful scenery.

The movie is about a young couple who are fighting odds that would be inconceivable to us. It is a political thriller with many surprises. As this young couple attempts to help all these people in need they find out about secrets that a drug company is hiding from a population it uses as guinea pigs but thinks is unworthy of the truth.

"The Constant Gardener" is not suitable for children. I think this is one you will really enjoy. It will definitely get you thinking and talking afterwards.

I recommend you see this one -- it kept me on the edge of my seat right up to the end.
