Critic Reviews for The Confession

All Critics (4)

As ótimas atuações são desperdiçadas por um roteiro medíocre com tendência à pregação.

Audience Reviews for The Confession


Half the script is interesting, but a sleeper without the best of efforts. That effort was perhaps made but not quite achieved. A joy to see Amy Irving again, especially with such a solid performance. Kingsley & Baldwin also do their craft justice, but something just didn't click whether it was the direction or the editing I don't know. In the end this is a tale of over-lapping moralities told with noble, yet flawed, characters.

(**): [img][/img] The cast is fine, but I felt that the film should have focused more solely on the Kingsley character and not Baldwin's. Fair at best.
