Ralph Fiennes

[Is a fiction film particularly well equipped to do the kind of work we usually associate with investigative or advocacy journalism?] No, I don't think it can be, especially if it has to serve a dramatic narrative, ... Everyone asks questions about the polemical side of the film, but for me it's also about a relationship between two people, their openness with each other, or their decision as a couple not to share, thinking they're respecting each other's privacy. People don't always tell each other what they need to know—not because they've got anything to hide, like a love affair, but because they don't want to invade. Our ability to be honest with each other, to say, I want this or I don't want that, it's all a distant cousin of what happens on the level of social policy, and it's who we are, isn't it? Politics starts in the bedroom.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I'm interested in the spirits of people.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
You just want to find that little thing.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Justin isn't going to respond angrily ... he's going to carefully say, 'What was she doing?More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
The Constant Gardener.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I don't think Justin changes.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Yes, it's depressing when there's a lack of clean water and sanitation, ... But here are people living lives of vitality. I only felt welcomed.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Justin investigates his wife's death and what she was investigating and there's -- people are after him to stop him. They don't want the information to get out, and they will do anything to stop him.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I don't think he's that complicated to begin with.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
It shows the kind of man he is. To allow any emotion would be unseemly for himMore Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
What I liked about the story is that it throws up all these questions. The movie teases the audience. 'Is she having an affair?'More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
You feel yourself working to show something. I've learned to distrust that feeling.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I don't think I can be a spokesperson about the problems (concerning the pharmaceutical industry), but the key area of concern is accessibility of drugs, especially for malaria, HIV and tuberculosis. The drugs exist but are they getting to the people that need them?More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
That's the last thing that I would do. I wouldn't be that patronizing.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Strange DaysMore Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
It has happened and it can happen again.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Daniel had to put up with a lot from me. Here's a boy who's tied up with a man pushing his finger into the wound on his head, laughing and delighting in the pain he's causing. He had to act as though he was in agony and terror without having many words to say. I was full of admiration for him.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
There are moments when anger spits out of him at Harry and other moments when he can be almost pleasant. You never quite know what he's going to do. People are incredibly scary when they're charming but you suspect they might suddenly do something very violent. If you sit across the table from someone who offers you a glass of wine and a present, but you know that he stabbed his wife to death, it's quite unnerving.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
H. Potter & Goblet of FireMore Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
They made his exterior very simple so you can see the evil insideMore Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
But that's why we have marketing and why I'm talking to people like youMore Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
I think he falls in love with her all over again after she's gone and as he uncovers what she had been up to -- her work to uncover a vast and very corrupt corporate and political conspiracy. It's particularly intriguing since -- for much of the early part of the film -- Justin is suspicious of her; thinking she was having an affair. I think the film asks questions about relationships between people and personal honesty. The honesty between couples and not just at the level of betrayal, but just about simple communication.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
Justin's journey traces not only what Tessa was investigating; he's also playing detective about their relationship. This man rediscovers and re-assesses his own relationship with his wife. It's a wonderful part, because he goes from being a reticent nice guy to being someone who is forced to confront some pretty tough truths about the world. I hope that the audience sees him as a kind of 'everyman.'More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
It was latent in him. He doesn't change character, ... It's not in his nature to be confrontational or create any tension. Good gardeners have to have a very quiet tenacity and insistence about them. This constancy, this determination, is in Justin, but it's not high octane. I like that, that people don't get it all in the beginning.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
The patience, the tenacity of the gardener for me, it's the spirit of Tessa.More Ralph Fiennes [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
