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

Guardian

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.

Shadows on the Wall

This low-budget British drama really captures the giddy highs of new love, with a liberated physicality that's rare on screen. And the cast is very good too, even if the story they're in never seems to go anywhere.

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.

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.

Eye for Film

Now and again you come across a film that is, in some ways, brave and yet which wastes its potential. Brilliantlove is one of those films...falls hard on its immature bare backside between the two stools of pornography and erotica.

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.

Empire Magazine

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