Excellent film with Montgomery Clift giving a very good performance as a priest in Québec who, due to his religion, cannot tell anybody about the murder he hears about during a confession. The standout scene involves the priests' lover, Anne Baxter, recollecting the moments they spent together during and after the second world war. The use of locations in this film are particularly stunning up un... read more

It was a rather interesting story about the priest and the issues involved in the confidentiality of the confession. It was some pretty good material and in the hands of the great... read more

Meanwhile the arrogant Inspector Larrue that is in charge of the investigation discovers two teenagers that have witnessed the killer dressed like a priest sneaking out Villette's house and walking to the church.

"Monty Cliftin esittämä pappi kuulee rippituolissa murhatunnustuksen. Murhamies sattuu olemaan seurakunnan talkkari, joka kaiken huipuksi naamioitui papin kasukkaan murhailtana liikuskellessaan. Aina niin miellyttävän Karl Maldenin poliisimies osaa Occamin partaveitsensä ja alkaa kuumottelemaan pappia, jota sitoo rippisalaisuus. Tästä seuraava eettinen painiskelu on korkeintaan viitteellistä, mukana on kuin ajantäyttönä kummallinen romanttinen sivujuonne eikä loppuratkaisu yllätä E"
