the constant gardener

after having watched tons of movies during the holiday, and after developing a great passion for film noir, i decided to dedicate an entire blog to movies, which i will start as soon as i get up-to-date with my current work.
However, until i do, i have to say that last night i went to see "The Constant Gardener", since i was really curious about this one, both because it's directed by Fernando Meirelles, and because it had a very high IMDB ranking for a new-comer. Anyway, i enjoyed the movie, the directing and the acting. The only thing which disturbed me is the striking resemblance between the plot of this film and the story from the 1996 brilliant thriller "Extreme Measures", directed by Michael Apted, and starring Hugh Grant and Gene Hackman.
