Brilliant Love (aka Erotology)


An erotic drama that follows Manchester and Noon as they enjoy a long, hot, summer of love, living in a garage on waste-ground in post industrial Britain.

Noon is our narrator, a shy taxidermist who keeps a silent menagerie in the freezer alongside Manchester’s ice pops.

Manchester documents their affair. He rejects lighting, the planning of images or choreography in his photography, creating wonderfully charged images with just a couple of cheap, instamatic cameras.

When Franny, a wealthy pornographer, launches Manchester on an unsuspecting art world, his success destroys the beauty of their once idyllic life. He loses almost everything and only just wins back the one thing he loves, Noon.
