Film of the week: The Confessional
Friday 07 June 1996
Robert Lepage's convoluted thriller is rich, dark and wry, its brooding tone neatly tempered by a ticklish sense of humour. It's set in Quebec City in 1952, where Hitchcock is shooting I Confess, and on the sidelines, a pregnant 16-year-old is opening her heart to a priest; and in 1989, too, when the girl's son tries to trace his father and discovers a trail of red herrings that would have foxed Hitchcock. It doesn't add up to much, but it's fun doing the sums.
