Confessions of a Hitman tells the story of one of the most prolific hitmen of our time. With twenty- eight murders and fifteen attacks on his hunting trophy, Gérald Gallant surprises and confuses. How did this little man stammers with fragile health and a modest IQ, living with his pious and generous wife in a tidy house in the heart of a quiet neighborhood in the Province of Quebec, manage to outwit both the most hardened criminals and the smartest policemen? It is here the hitman himself who explains himself and lifts the veil on his own life ... even if it means manipulating those to whom he speaks along the way.

    "'Confessions' is a film masterfully conducted by an artist in full possession of his means, both in front of and behind the camera."

    "A strangely compelling performance...."

    "The reason to watch this film is for the performance of Luc Picard who plays Gérald. He is engrossing and pulls you into the mundane existence of his character, a man who is the very embodiment of the banality of evil. That you end up caring about (but not for) Gérald is a tribute to Picard’s interpretation. "

    "Gerald’s mundane existence makes for surprisingly rich drama, especially in his affair with a woman who’s a little too eager to support his chosen profession. It’s... more creatively rewarding than most true-crime material."
    Josh Bell, Crooked Marquee
