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.

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (4)

  • 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.

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

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    November 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 12, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 11, 2010 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • An explicit and atmospheric, if just occasionally unconvincing look at sex and relationships.

  • Feb 15, 2011
    A interesting enough tale of two young lovers who enjoy there wild lifestyle full of sex and friendship, living in a garage, but its when photos of there sex and poses, castch the eye of a local guy that interups there commitment to each other and takes tragic turns for both in there time apart. the two leads are interesting and good enough, and put it all out there, but at times the film fails to grab you as it should, although that said, moments to be had
