Movie Info

A couple's most private moments are exposed to the world in this sexually-charged comedy-drama from British filmmaker Ashley Horner. Manchester (Liam Browne) is a struggling photographer with charm to spare who falls for Noon (Nancy Trotter Landry), a sweet but spunky woman who works as a taxidermist. Noon is also drawn to Manchester, and together they enjoy a wildly enthusiastic sexual relationship that reflects their innocent but deeply passionate love for one another. Manchester enjoys snapping pictures of Noon while they make love, and one day he mistakenly leaves some of the photos in a pub where they're found by Franny (Michael Hodgson), who trades in upscale erotica. Franny is impressed with Manchester's photos and offers to set up a lucrative gallery show, presenting these private documents to the general public. Against his better judgment, Manchester agrees, but his new success as a photographer and the nature of his work has a severe impact on his romance with Noon. Brilliantlove received its world premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.

There's an attractive, raw intensity to 'brilliantlove' that's undeniable.

Any good work is sabotaged somewhat by some spurious plotting and an ill-judged, final-act attempt to satirise the pretentiousness of the art world.

While it's to be commended for including so much nudity in these prudish times, what a pity more attention wasn't paid to the plot that feels, ahem, threadbare.

Daily Mirror (UK)

It's not entirely believable and yet Arnott and Browne show an absolute, full-on commitment. Even though it's flawed, it's also strangely heartfelt.

Unless you're a fan of films featuring bouts of explicit love-making, it's likely to come across as nothing more than a self-indulgent bore.

Radio Times

An explicit and atmospheric, if just occasionally unconvincing look at sex and relationships.

Audience Reviews for The Orgasm Diaries (Brilliantlove)

Raw, gorgeous, erotic, beautiful love turns to stale, dead, torn, and empty images. Follow the journey; find yourself.

Not bad. This one is about a guy who falls in love with a girl, but in order to better himself in life he sells naked pictures of her... not really the greatest idea as she didn't know about it. Things get a lot worse after that. It was filmed really well. The acting was good. And it had a ridiculous amount of T&A.
