Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's an attractive, raw intensity to 'brilliantlove' that's undeniable."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"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."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"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."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"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."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"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."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"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."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"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."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"An explicit and atmospheric, if just occasionally unconvincing look at sex and relationships."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
