Today I’m reviewing one of my favorite thrillers. Confession of Murder, also known as I am Murderer. Is a crime story with murders and investigations, that doesn’t seem out of the ordinary at first. This will change towards a much richer goal.
As you know, when I write a review I try hard not to spoil anything about the story. One thing I can tell you is that the script goes beyond a mere revenge story. Actually, what we get to see, it’s what happens with the people that have to keep on living after a tragedy like that destroys their lives.

Conclusions of Confession of Murder
The narrative makes us try to understand the pain that everyone is going through. Especially the family of the victims. Also, we get a high approach to the media treatment about this kind of situations. Even tho the movie is a drama, you will find some funny moments that decompress tension. These seconds are really well placed.
It’s an excellent piece that I highly recommend, personally it became one of my favorites when I watched it. Firstly, because of the way the story is told, secondly the script and also the way it’s filmed. To my box of favs! 😀
