Based on true events. Luc Picard portrays Gérald Gallant, one of the most prolific hitmen in the profession. Gallant chalked up twenty-eight murders and fifteen attempted murders to his name, mostly those of senior officers in the Hells Angels, mafia, and organized crime. He was also a police informant who did not hesitate to sell out those around him, including many of his cohorts that he both liked and respected.
How was it possible that this fragile, stammering man with a modest IQ managed to outwit hardened criminals and the smartest policemen? His intimate confessions reveal all the answers.
Nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards, CONFESSIONS OF A HITMAN premiered at the Whistler Film Festival where Luc Picard won the prize for Best Director of a Borsos Competition Film.
“A decades-spanning true-crime drama narrated by a longtime mob enforcer who turns state’s evidence... 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.” –Crooked Marquee
