「在我出生的城市,『現在』如同小孩般騎在『過去』的肩膀上。」(片首及片末的獨白)踏入九十年代的魁北克社會愈趨世俗化,新一波的身份問題更形複雜。1989年,Pierre從中國回到老家奔喪,遇上一位神秘商人,聲稱掌握其繼兄Marc的身世秘密。時間回到1952年,希治閣正在籌備電影《懺情恨》,並來到魁北克的一所教堂取景。豈料這個虛構故事——關於一個因懺悔者的告解而陷入道德困境的神父,竟於這教堂的戲裡戲外同步上演。時空交錯的蒙太奇,作為連結兩代的魁北克橋,帶領觀眾一步一步揭示震撼真相。希治閣式懸疑片的敘事結構之外,本片美學奇特前衛,意念設計大膽凌厲,穿梭於桑拿房、脫衣舞酒吧的胴體春色、如鮮血般染滿一片紅的視覺主調、以至來自遠方天安門鎮壓民運的新聞廣播,衝破禁忌的潛藏意識貫穿全片。

“In the city where I was born, the past carries the present like a child on its shoulders.” This is the line of voiceover that bookends the film. Going into the 1990s, Quebecois society has become increasingly secular. Set in 1989, the protagonist Pierre returns home from China for a funeral. He meets a mysterious merchant who claims to know the truth about his brother Marc’s heritage. The film also flashes back to a storyline in 1952, showing Alfred Hitchcock in the midst of shooting I Confess in a church in Quebec. The story about a penitent and a priest is happening both in front of the camera and outside of Hitchcock’s production. The time-leaping montage connects two eras of Quebec, leading viewers to the shocking truth. Besides the Hitchcockian narrative structure, the film is aesthetically forward-looking and conceptually daring. From the sensuality of the naked bodies in the sauna room and strip club, to its bloody red visual theme and the TV news about Tiananmen Square, the whole film is permeated with a taboo-breaking spirit.
