This is another movie with very talented actress like Ralph Fiennes, and Rachel Weisz, all of the Oscar nominees. Strong human issue, artistic picture, u must see this movie.

When a British diplomat's wife -- a socially-conscious lawyer -- turns up dead in Kenya, he sets out to find the truth surrounding her murder. In the process, he finds out that his wife had been compiling data against a multinational drug company that uses helpless Africans as guinea pigs to test a tuberculosis remedy with unfortunately fatal side effects. Therefore, those who may have had the most reason to silence her are closer to home than he ever imagined.

Rachel Weisz were picked up an Academy award as best Supporting Actress. Brazilian Fernando Meirelles gave us the widely acclaimed City of God as his directorial debut and his adaptation of John Le Carre's novel of the same name is no disappointment.

Based on real events in both Africa and Asia the main character is Justin Quayle, played brilliantly by Ralph Fiennes. He sets out to discover the truth surrounding the death of his young wife Tessa (Weisz). Tessa was a political activist and the film opens with the discovery of her brutally murdered body in northern Kenya. At first believing that his wife was killed in some bizarre bandit raid, Justin takes up his dead wife's cause (the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry) while also uncovering the real events that lead to her death.

This,movie, told us about the true love, when Justin, ready to sacrifice his blood, to find the truth about the murderer of her wife.He fly to every part of the world, to search the truth, the story behind his beloved wife activity, until he realize that he fight with the giant mafia medical industries.

Fiennes and Weisz not only carry the flag, they are brilliantly supported by a cast of mighty fine British actors (Bill Nighy and Pete Postlethwaite). The story is exciting and engaging and you'd be hard pressed to find a better, more natural thriller.
