A poetic love-story. Noon (Nancy Trotter Landry) is the narrator, a shy taxidermist who keeps a silent menagerie of fauna in the freezer alongside her photographer lover Manchester's (Liam Browne) ice pops. Manchester documents their affair, creating highly charged and wonderfully erotic images. They are happy to detach themselves from the outside world as much as possible, allowing them to explore each other and indulge their passions. In their space away from other distractions, their appetite and attraction for each other is intensified. How will their relationship fare when they step out of this cocooned environment? Tension is never far from the surface, and things are exacerbated when Manchester is seduced by a lucrative offer that takes him away from Noon and the world they share.

First, the sex! Well, as others have mentioned, it does form the cornerstone of the story, and its gritty depiction is so refreshing compared to the airbrushed trash we're used to from bigger budget films. Personally I found it interesting more than erotic. I wouldn't in any way describe this film as porn, although I'm sure it will sell on its notoriety. Such brave performances from the two leads, I'm amazed at how far they let themselves go.
This film has still passed the certification process, so probably represents about as far as an 18 rating can go in 2011. Mostly, "harder" moments are implied or oblique. It does make you ponder what an 18 film will show in another 20 years.
So why only three from five? For me, I couldn't fully connect with the over-reached plot, nor the self-indulgent waster art student leads. Their characters were interesting, but they are basically both in need of a wash, some counselling and a proper job. However, even though I didn't like them, I totally got that they were perfect for each other, and this is where the film somehow manages to dredge up a feeling of sweet romance.
Ironically, towards the end "Brilliantlove" tries to poke fun at the same arthouse culture that it comes from itself.. almost some attempt to say I'm Too Cool Even For Art School. Didn't really pull it off, it's not that clever, and when all's said and done the story is pretty standard fare in essence.
It is very creditable though, and as a Northern lad myself I think it's fantastic that it was produced and shot in the North, even though it did little to really break any sterotypes. It's important to show that there really is talent in the country outside of London.
So, a very fresh film that makes you think, let down by some contrivances and pretensions - but please do watch if you're reading these reviews, it is something very different and still worthwhile.
It certainly does this, and I have to say the two principal actors carry off this "acted illusion" of physical love and unerring desire very convincingly.
It is not vulgar, but definately not one for the prudish or easily offended by the graphic scenes of nudity and sexual arousal. But, it was a tastefully made film, and had a good story line which I will not reveal in great detail as it will ruin a new viewers experience.
Teenagers have so much fun these days
This dvd is full of passion in very kinky settings, lots of lust and desire around every corner.
The writer is so poetic in his dialogue.
This is a must see movie.
