Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz head the cast of the romantic thriller THE CONSTANT GARDENER, adapted from the eponymous novel by John le Carré. In a remote area of Northern Kenya, the region’s most dedicated activist, the brilliant and passionate Tessa Quayle, has been found brutally murdered. Tessa’s travelling companion, a local doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. The members of the British High Commission assume that Tessa’s widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle, will leave the matter to their discretion. They could not be more wrong.

This film will be introduced (language: Dutch) by psychiatrist/psychoanalyst Josée van Eijk.
