I Confess is a 1953 suspense drama directed by Alfred Hitchcock. In the Catholic Church, the sacrament of confession is guided by strict rules. When a person confesses, the priest cannot repeat the confession to anybody else, under any circumstances. In beautiful Quebec City, Father Michael Logan (Montgomery Clift) leads a happy and devout life, despite his rocky past. He has managed to move on from a tumultuous romance with Ruth (Anne Baxter), who is still brokenhearted that Father Michael became a priest. One day, however, something happens to disrupt the priest's contented life. His own housekeeper, Otto (O. E. Hasse), comes to confess a terrible sin that also doubles as a crime. Although Father Michael feels shocked, he knows he cannot break the sacred secrecy of the confessional. He hides his troubled spirit from those around him, and tries to forget what he heard. When the police come knocking on the rectory door and it becomes clear that Father Michael himself is a prime suspect, the priest must decide between his honor and his vows.moreless
