The Constant Gardener is a 2005 thriller film directed by Fernando Meirelles. The screenplay by Jeffrey Caine is based on the John le Carré novel of the same name. It tells the story of Justin Quayle, a man who seeks to find the motivating forces behind his wife’s murder.
In London, Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) meets and falls in love with outspoken humanitarian Tessa (Rachel Weisz), a beautiful young activist who persuades him to take her back with him to Kenya.
Justin, a shy low-rung British diplomat and horticultural hobbyist posted in Kenya, is one to avoid making a fuss until he learns that his wife was found dead on the veldt. Tessa has been murdered at a crossroads along with her Kenyan driver. Her colleague doctor Arnold Bluhm (Hubert Koundé) is initially suspected of her murder but is later found to have been murdered on the same day as Tessa. Various rumours abound that the two were having an affair; however, it is later revealed that Bluhm is in fact gay.
As the mystery surrounding his wife’s death unfolds, Justin is radicalised in his determination to get to the bottom of his wife’s murder. He soon runs up against a drug corporation that is using Kenya’s population for fraudulent testing of a tuberculosis drug (“dypraxa”) with known harmful side effects and disregards the well-being of its poor African test subjects.
Danny Huston plays Sandy Woodrow, the British High Commissioner on the scene. Bill Nighy is Sir Bernard Pellegrin, head of the Africa Desk at the Foreign Office and thus Justin and Sandy’s boss. After finding out the truth about what happened to Tessa, Justin was killed at the place where she died.
Justin’s gentle but diligent attention to his plants is a recurring background theme, from which image the film’s title is derived.
