"Forgive Me Father" tells the story of Virgil Garrett, an intensely frightening, yet strangely sympathetic and sublime character. Garrett was once a ruthless and feared hit man for organized crime boss, Frank Ransom (played by Charles Napier), until he faked his own death, to get out of the "business". Unbeknownst to almost everyone, Virgil Garrett has spent the past twelve years living and working in Canada as a Roman Catholic priest. Now, a mysterious message brings Garrett back from the "dead", like a dragon woken from a long sleep. He learns that his brother Clarence (played by Alexander Hill), has been senselessly murdered, gunned down by Frank Ransom's cocksure son, Tony (played by Chris Elbert), and four of his criminal cohorts.

HOW SAVVY THAT HIS FINAL HIT IS TO TAKE OUT HIS FORMER BOSS, REMINDS ME OF THE POPULARITY OF THE SOPRANOS.
A Nice Film Not to be overlooked.
Some of the best drama in the business of filmmaking. A little of what everyones deepest desires and fears are relaying in the short span of this movie. The camera is moved and with regard to the drama portrayed in the movie. You can tell Ivan Rogers used a very long lens in the entire movie to bring us closer to the people. The talent is good, the actors portray their characters with a realness not captured in other movies today.
Every scene feels real, like you are there hundreds of miles from your safe home to deal with these people as Ivan deals with them. Slowly and without remorse as they showed no remorse for his doctor and loved brother. This movie is about the revenge all of us wish we could take out. Sure its convenient that he is an ex hitman. HOW SAVVY THAT HIS FINAL HIT IS TO TAKE OUT HIS FORMER BOSS, REMINDS ME OF THE POPULARITY OF THE SOPRANOS.
Although some people quickly overlook and disregard this film, it is a sad comparison to other movies.
