You're not much of a burglar, are you? Come to bed, and you can have whatever you like.
John Maybury's dazzling debut feature is an extraordinarily powerful study of the passions that drove one of Britain's greatest and most controversial painters, Francis Bacon (Derek Jacobi). The film charts the turbulent and complex relationship that developed between the flamboyant artist and George Dyer (Daniel Craig), the petty thief who became not only Bacon's lover but the model for some of his most intense and celebrated paintings.
Set in the bohemian world of 60's Soho, LOVE IS THE DEVIL perfectly captures the decadent underworld of artists models, East End thugs and the infamous drinking den, The Colony Room, presided over by the hilariously foul-mouthed Muriel Belcher.
