Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon

Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

Exploring the territory where art, love and sex collide, Love is the Devil charts the powerful and dangerous relationship betweens one of Britains most controversial artists, Francis Bacon and his lover and muse George Dyer. This is a dazzling, audacious feature from one of Britains most exciting directors portraying a bawdy, decadent world of artists studio, casinos and late night bars, including the infamous Colony Room Club, presided over by foul-mouthed patroness Muriel Belcher . Derek Jacobis portrayal of Bacon is precise and mesmerising, whilst Daniel Craig gives a raw, expressive performance as the tough petty thief who became the model for some of Bacons most intense and celebrated paintings, his ultimate vulnerability throwing his lovers glory into sharp relief.

WARNING: This film may contain explicit sexual scenes, strong language and violence.
