It is the summer of Elio , a year-old Jewish-Italian, lives with his parents in rural Northern Italy. Elio's father, a professor of archaeology, invites a year-old graduate student, Oliver, who is also Jewish, to live with the family over the summer and help with his academic paperwork.
Elio, an introspective bibliophile and a talented musician, initially thinks he has little in common with Oliver, who has a carefree and exuberant personality.
Elio resents having to give up his bedroom to Oliver for the duration of his stay, and spends much of the summer reading, playing piano, and hanging out with his childhood friend, Marzia.
Meanwhile, Oliver admits being attracted to one of the local girls, much to Elio's annoyance. Elio and Oliver swim together, go for long walks into town, and accompany Elio's father on an archaeological trip.
Elio begins a sexual relationship with Marzia and brags about it in front of Oliver to gauge his reaction, but nonetheless finds himself increasingly attracted to him.
During a trip to the local post office, Elio indirectly confesses his feelings to Oliver, who tells him he should not act on them.
Later that day, the two kiss, but Oliver is reluctant to go any further. They grow distant. In response to a note from Elio, Oliver leaves a message on his desk suggesting they meet at midnight.
Elio spends the day with Marzia, but longs to see Oliver. At midnight, he approaches Oliver and their rendezvous results in the two sleeping together for the first time.
They become more physically and emotionally intimate in the days that follow, frequenting sexual encounters while still keeping their relationship a secret.
One day, in bed, Oliver says to Elio, "Call me by your name and I'll call you by mine. As the end of Oliver's stay approaches, he and Elio both find themselves overcome by uncertainty and longing.
Elio's parents, who are privately aware of the bond between the two but do not address it openly, recommend he and Oliver visit Bergamo together before Oliver returns home to the U.
They spend three romantic days together. Elio, heartbroken after Oliver's departure, calls his mother and asks her to pick him up from the train station and take him home.
Marzia is sympathetic to Elio's feelings and says she wants to remain friends. Elio's father, observing his deep sadness, tells him he was aware of his relationship with Oliver and confesses to almost having had a similar relationship in his own youth.
He urges Elio to learn from his grief and grow, instead of just moving on too quickly. During Hanukkah , Oliver calls Elio's family to tell them he is engaged to be married.
He tells Elio that he remembers everything very clearly. After the call, Elio sits down by the fireplace and stares into the flames, tearfully reminiscing, as his parents and the house staff prepare a holiday dinner.
The movie ends when Elio, still seated by the fireplace and now appearing to be more content, throws a glance into the camera as his mother calls for him.
Guadagnino has described Call Me by Your Name as a family-oriented film for the purpose of "transmission of knowledge and hope that people of different generations come to see the film together.
The director tried to avoid the flaws he had seen in most coming-of-age films , where growth is often portrayed as being a result of resolving preconceived dilemmas such as an enforced choice between two lovers.
It was important to me to create this powerful universality, because the whole idea of the movie is that the other person makes you beautiful—enlightens you, elevates you.
The producers contacted Guadagnino, their first choice to direct, but he declined, citing a busy schedule. The screenplay was completed in late Ivory stepped down from a directorial role in , leaving Guadagnino to direct the film alone.
It might take longer, it would look terrible if we got in fights on the set, and so on. The film differs from its source material in several ways.
It is written in flashback, from Elio's perspective. The filmmakers set the movie entirely in to help the audience understand the characters, believing that this approach would allow them to remain true to the spirit of the book.
In his words, Guadagnino chose "the year—in Italy at least—where the '70s are killed, when everything that was great about the '70s is definitely shut down," but also a time when the characters could be "in a way untouched by the corruption of the '80s—in the U.
Guadagnino was tempted to remove the scene in which Elio masturbates into a pitted peach, finding it too explicit.
To their surprise, it worked, so Guadagnino shot the scene and ultimately included it in the film. It was inspired by Jonathan Demme 's Something Wild , and Guadagnino's experience of dancing by himself when he was young.
When he was revising Ivory's draft of the script, Guadagnino removed the voice-over narration and much of the nudity. Perlman's speech but was committed to keeping it in the script.
Cinema can be an entirely magical medium. What I do as a writer, and what Guadagnino does as a film director, is more than speak two different languages.
What I do is chisel a statue down to its finest, most elusive details. What a film director does is make the statue move. Many of the changes to Ivory's screenplay were made during the filming; the screenwriter was not present at the shooting set.
Ivory said he got along with LaBeouf, who had read for the film in New York City, but the production company later felt the actor was unsuitable after his "various troubles".
Guadagnino was impressed by Armie Hammer 's performance in The Social Network ,   describing him as a "sophisticated actor, with a great range".
But there's no way I can't do this [film], mostly because it scares me so much. Edgar and Final Portrait In , Swardstrom—Spears' husband and agent—introduced Chalamet to Guadagnino,   who immediately felt the actor had "the ambition, the intelligence, the sensitivity, the naivety, and the artistry" to play Elio.
Michael Stuhlbarg , who was cast as Elio's father, Mr. Perlman,   did not read the book until he had already joined the production. Perlman as having a "sense of generosity and love and understanding".
Guadagnino chose Amira Casar , whom he had known for twenty years, for the role of Elio's mother Annella. Capriolo, who was not an actor, was chosen to play Mafalda, the Perlmans' maid.
So comfortable, not nervous at all. His wife was sitting there and said, 'I had no idea! Hammer and Chalamet both signed contracts prohibiting the film from showing them with full-frontal nudity.
Ivory, whose original screenplay contained nudity, was dismayed by the decision. He criticized what he saw as an "American" attitude, saying, "Nobody seems to care that much or be shocked about a totally naked woman.
It's the men. The main location set for the Perlmans' residence was Villa Albergoni , an uninhabited 17th-century mansion in Moscazzano.
Guadagnino did not want the film to be a period piece and tried to resist making a film that would reflect "our idea of the 80s".
His goal was an accurate recreation of the period that was invisible to the viewer. Di Modrone said, "That made it cozy and personal I wanted to give it the sense of time passing by".
The filmmakers set up faded political billboards in public places to reflect the Italian general election in  and re-created a newsstand full of magazines of that time.
Perlman's desk. Costume designer Giulia Piersanti avoided using period costumes; instead, she wanted to provide "a sense of insouciant adolescent sensuality, summer heat and sexual awakening" to the characters.
For Oliver's "sexy, healthy American" image, Piersanti referred to "some of Bruce Weber 's earliest photographs".
Principal photography began on May 9, , and wrapped in June ,    lasting around 33 days.
The arch of Torrazzo at Crema Cathedral and several historical locations in the streets of Crema and Pandino were chosen during production.
Before and during filming, the actors lived in Crema and were able to experience small-town life. Luca was able to look at me and completely undress me," Hammer said.
The Villa Albergoni. The arch of Torrazzo at the Crema Cathedral. The Piazza Vittorio Emanuele in Pandino. Cascate del Serio. The Station of Pizzighettone.
Guadagnino shot the film in chronological order,   which allowed the filmmakers to "witness the onscreen maturity of both protagonist and actor", according to Fasano.
Perlman delivers an emotional speech to Elio was filmed on the penultimate day of filming. At the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele,  a memorial to the victims of the battle of the Piave in Pandino,  the filmmakers laid a long camera dolly track to film the scene where Elio tells Oliver of his feelings for him in a single long take.
This provided the flexibility and "flow of emotion" a cut scene could not. Sayombhu Mukdeeprom , who had previously collaborated with Guadagnino on Ferdinando Cito Filomarino's Antonia , served as the director of photography.
Guadagnino, who had previously worked with Laforce on A Bigger Splash , said he was "able to create a sort of Cathedral of sound without overwhelming the movie.
Fasano collaborated with Guadagnino during the post-production. Their first cut of the film ran three hours and 20 minutes long.
Several notable changes were made, or almost made, near the end of post-production. The monologue sequence with Elio's father once had piano playing beneath it.
The scene where the two protagonists bike to a courtyard almost failed to make the final cut after one of the producers said it was inconsequential.
There was a "well-acted" scene where Elio and Oliver were "teasing one another" under a lime tree, which the director felt was "too precious". Guadagnino selected the music for Call Me by Your Name himself.
Impressed by the lyricism of American songwriter Sufjan Stevens ,  Guadagnino asked him to record an original song for Call Me by Your Name and to narrate the film from the perspective of Elio at an older age.
Surprised by the result, Guadagnino listened to them on-set with the actors and editor Walter Fasano.
A soundtrack album was released in digital formats by Madison Gate Records and Sony Classical on November 3, ,  and in physical formats on November 17, Warner Bros.
Entertainment released the film in Italy on January 25, In the week ending November 30, , the song collected , on-demand streams, its biggest streaming week in the U.
Reaction to the advertisement on social media was somewhat negative, largely because of Sony Pictures' misleading use of an image of Chalamet and Garrel instead of a focus on the protagonists' relationship.
Ty Burr of The Boston Globe gave the film three-and-a-half stars, commended the director for "broaden[ing] his embrace of humanity while hitting new heights of cinematic bliss" and said that the film "may be a fantasy but it's one that's lovely and wise.
The Economist noted the tension "between pain and pleasure" in the film and praised Chalamet, saying that he "evokes so many shades of humanity, portraying a path of youthful self-discovery that is more raw, unhinged, and ultimately honest than many actors could manage".
It never gets over that hesitation. Thompson of Forbes criticized its length and called it an "excruciatingly boring travelogue".
In a series of articles regarding the best of the s in film , IndieWire ranked Call Me by Your Name as the 18th best film of the decade and Chalamet's performance as the 39th best acting performance.
Guadagnino has deliberated over the idea of a sequel since the film's premiere at Sundance, when he said he realized the characters "could go beyond the boundaries of the film.
Guadagnino said that in the sequel, "I don't think Elio is necessarily going to become a gay man. He hasn't found his place yet I believe that he would start an intense relationship with Marzia again.
Guadagnino has expressed interest in the politics of the s, saying, "It is the time of the fall of Communism and the start of the new world order and so-called ' end of history ' that Francis Fukuyama established then But I don't know how they're going to get a year-old [Chalamet]!
In January , Guadagnino revealed the sequel will be set "right after the fall of Berlin Wall and that great shift that was the end of So we are flirting with each other about the sequel but I don't know if we are very serious.
He expressed enthusiasm to reprise his role in the sequel, saying "I think it would have to be some kind of unique thing from what it was, but I would absolutely be game for trying.
In an interview for Time in October , Chalamet compared the sequel to Richard Linklater 's Boyhood and said that Hammer, Aciman and Guadagnino were all intended to return for the next film.
He described her character as "a New England kind of hoochie woman" who might also have children with Oliver. I didn't have space of mind and the real, actual time to put ideas on the table and think of things.
And so I think it's not the time to collect it and put it into a vase. In November , Ivory confirmed that he wouldn't return for the sequel and said that Aciman thought "it was not a good idea".
He also felt the potential sequel might not match the expectation, saying "It felt like a really perfect storm of so many things, that if we do make a second one, I think we're setting ourselves up for disappointment.
I don't know that anything will match up to the first I'm like, 'That was such a special thing, why don't we just leave it alone? In March , Guadagnino confirmed a sequel film in an interview with Italian newspaper la Repubblica.
He also stated in the interview that he was due to meet with an unnamed American writer to discuss the sequel, however it was postponed due to the COVID pandemic.
I haven't even read the book. I know Luca hasn't got a full script yet, although he knows what he wants to do with the story, so I don't know how similar or dissimilar it will be to Find Me the novel.

The atmosphere is perfectly described. I could picture This is a beautifully written story of passion, obsession, and possibly love. I could picture it vividly, possible because I visited the region in the summer of , but primarily because of the writing.
Out of the three themes I listed above, I think the primary one is obsession which is why I'm not sure if I consider this a love story.
That isn't a flaw in my eyes, but I was often disturbed by the narrator during the first third of the book. It isn't the book's fault.
A lot of it has to do with my own personal opinions and my current attitude towards people who have the mindset of Elio as he obsessed over Oliver.
At first, his interest seems one-sided, but he becomes so focused on it that it consumes him and makes him toxic at times. He tracks Oliver's movements, his conversations with others, choreographs conversations and interactions, and eventually becomes so obsessed that he considers plotting to turn Oliver against a girl he may have interest in out of jealousy and a need to control him.
He seemed to see Oliver as primarily a possession even though Elio has made no move to actually make his own interest and desire apparent.
There were two things that snapped me out of my cringing judgment: 1 I had to check myself and remember that Elio is only Extreme emotional responses are more acceptable for a teenager.
Other than that brief foray, Elio's feelings were well drawn. I could see their interactions, I could feel what he was feeling, and I understood perfectly his moments of doubt and anguish when he felt rejected.
It took me back to moments in my life when I was a teenager and in love with a boy, and how every minor moment was monumental in my mind.
And how it feels to be hopeful about something when the outcome is ambiguous, or I could fool myself into thinking it was. Primarily for this reason, I give the book four stars.
Elio felt real and sometimes that hurt me, but ultimately it helped his story feel real as well. However, the book slowed down a lot for me at the end.
I guess you can say, the major conflict had been resolved and my engagement dwindled because I assumed things would tie up neatly in a bow and all would be well.
I was wrong, but I still found the pacing and final chapters to be at odds with the beginning of the book. All in all, this is a wonderful coming of age story about a teenage boy who is exploring his sexuality and his first real taste of passion and love.
It often felt like I was there beside Elio and Oliver, simultaneously rooting them on while at times wondering if the situation was healthy for either party.
Despite my own personal opinions, I can admit that this perfectly captured moments that most people experience in their youth--intense, careless incidents where everything feels important and devastating even if it fades with the end of the season, or the summer, or the semester, but you remember those moments for the rest of your life.

This is an achingly slow, beautiful, microscopic analysis of the glittering facets of identity. Hunger and fear. Shame that becomes a route to total intimacy.
The emotions are universal, if not the specific permutations and situations. If that were not possible, genres like fantasy and murder mysteries could not succeed.
Know Yourself Perhaps the most important task of adolescence is to understand oneself. Only then can one truly begin to understand others.
Oliver, at 24, seems very sure of himself - and everyone else. They hide who they are. I expect many GoodReaders do.
Books are safe spaces where I can confront the truth. By hiding in books, I can learn about the world, and about myself.
Thence comes self-knowledge. Peaches and feet feature notably, separately, sexually. Is that a good thing? Fluidity " Bakers and butchers don't compete.
Their unstated at the time bond of shared secular Judaism was more elusive to me. Sexuality is a spectrum; some move along it, while others stick at one point on it.
Personality, behaviour, or circumstances? A peripheral character had formative experiences in Thailand, and was picked up by a ladyboy.
My first impressions were about the importance of first impressions in setting our path, our fate. Oliver was staying with Elio's family in Italy for six weeks: that year's promising grad student.
The setting is a lush and elemental component of the story. It could not have happened the same way in the US or UK. Elio dips in and out of his memories, showing how his typical teen uncertainty, coupled with his atypical academic and self-analytical approach, affect them both, throughout their lives.
I wanted to come back years later and believe, if only for a moment. Ten years after it was published, it is topical in the aftermath of Harvey Weinstein and MeToo.
I didn't believe the characters, let alone their relationship. Film details on imdb here. View all 63 comments. Sep 30, demi. For instance, while they were talking about apricot, instead of him thinking about apricot, what do you think he thought of?

Love or intimacy is not about saying sentimental words for the sake of saying sentimental words even though you have shared almost nothing and know nothing about one another, nor is it about living in your fantastical dream detached from reality, nor is it about sex or everything that dirtiest mind of the protagonist associates with sex.
This book is nothing but ove If you think this is love, you have never loved; if you think this is loss, you have never lost anything that truly matters to you.
This book is nothing but over-sentimental, redundant, hubristic, dishonest words that pretend to convey love and intimacy, but indeed convey nothing but resentment, shallowness, egoism, and the disability to love anyone, not even oneself.
I won't pretend to know what true love is, but at least I know that the first step of love is to acknowledge that the person you love is neither yourself nor your illusive creation but someone real and concrete.
If Elio truly thinks this is the love of his life, and he holds onto it for goddamn twenty years as if adding a time period arbitrarily could convince everyone of how special his love story is , all I can say to him is: Get a life!

A generator of emotions. Thought provoking. Beautiful writing style. And at the same time, raw and real. The ending left me with my heart shattered into million pieces.
I swear guys, I'm still collecting those pieces. I mean it is not only about a love story. It is about the choices we make in our lives and the result of those choices.
The results that affect a lot of people at once. The most stunning message the story left me with is that people fall in love with the souls.
Not with the beauty of the faces and the bodies but with the beauty of a soul. So real. So beautiful.
So raw. I found this novel painfully slow going at times. There was too much introspection, too little dialogue.
The young grad student and the year-old narrator annoyed me with their wishy-washy feelings and emotions. I craved more intensity and passion. Despite its flaws, I was gradually swept away by the lovely writing, the setting, and growing intimacy between the two main characters.
Knowing early on these two young men were not destined to remain together did not prevent me from being deeply mo I found this novel painfully slow going at times.

He was waiting for me to say something. He was staring at me. This, I think, was the first time I dared myself to stare back at him.
Usually, I'd cast a glance and then look away - look away because I didn't want to swim in the lovely, clear pool of his eyes unless I'd been invited to - and I never waited long enough to know whether I was even wanted there; look away because I was too scared to stare anyone back; look away because I didn't want to give anything away; look away because I couldn't He was waiting for me to say something.
Usually, I'd cast a glance and then look away - look away because I didn't want to swim in the lovely, clear pool of his eyes unless I'd been invited to - and I never waited long enough to know whether I was even wanted there; look away because I was too scared to stare anyone back; look away because I didn't want to give anything away; look away because I couldn't acknowledge how much he mattered.
Look away because that steely gaze of his always reminded me of how tall he stood and how far below him I ranked. Now, in the silence of the moment, I stared back, not to defy him, or to show I wasn't shy any longer, but to surrender, to tell him this is who I am, this is who you are, this is what I want, there is nothing but truth between us now, and where there's truth there are no barriers, no shifty glances, and if nothing comes of this, let it never be said that either of us was unaware of what might happen.
I hadn't a hope left. And maybe I stared back because there wasn't a thing to lose now. I stared back with the all-knowing, I-dare-you-to-kiss-me gaze of someone who both challenges and flees with one and the same gesture.
I picked up this book because it was made into a film. No other reason. I really didn't know what to expect. I was shocked to find, from the very first page, beautiful writing that was riveting.
Aciman claims to have dashed this off in four months, if that's true then the man is truly blessed. It's exquisite. It's a work of art.
It's such beautiful writing that it almost doesn't matter what he's writing about. I'm sure a lot of people said the same thing about The Goldfinch.
But, as we know, I have to review the book. Let's begin. So, the basic premise of this book is that a seventeen-year-old's family hosts an intellectual for six weeks every summer because his father is a famous professor.
This summer they host Oliver, a twenty-four-year-old professor assistant prof? Elio 17 quickly develops a painful and all-consuming crush on Oliver He's never had sex with a man, but has been interested in having sex with a man since he was He picks Oliver to be his first - at least, he hopes and prays and wishes and dreams that Oliver will be his first.
Let's break this down. The book is not a romance novel. Just like The Bridges of Madison County is not a romance novel.
Yes, love and sex are involved, but the book is not a romance novel. Just want to make that clear for you up front.
It's the mid '80s and Elio lives in heaven. He lives in Italy. It is the very description of bliss. He spends his days reading, playing instruments, swimming lazily, sunbathing, dating, fucking, eating, and napping.
So whenever he complains about stuff, I was like, "Shut the fuck up. He has zero responsibilities and zero worries. I don't count his crush on Oliver as a 'worry.
Some people might be bothered by the age difference here: Elio is 17 and Oliver is It didn't bother me one bit.
It would bother you if the year-old was female. The problem with books that feature a year-old female and a significantly older male getting together is that they always make the girl a blushing virgin who has never seen a cock before, much less fucked anyone.
She's always super-naive and sheltered. Because of this, books like these seem really skeezy. There's a huge power divide. The man comes off as a sleazoid who is seducing a 'jailbait' virgin.
It's gross. Rarely do I see a book where a year-old girl who actually knows what she's doing, has sexual agency, isn't a virgin, is competent and on equal footing, willingly and with eyes open enters into a relationship with an older man.
That kind of book isn't appealing to readers, I guess, who want an older man with tons of experience 'deflowering' a quaking virgin, ripping hymen, OMG it's-not-going-to-fit, what-is-that-thing?
I mean, your mileage may vary, perhaps that is your schtick, but to me it is not appealing at all. And when the female ISN'T a virgin and we have this situation, she's always presented as a hardened 'loose woman' and it isn't any fun either.
Any authors with actual skillz feel free to rise to this challenge. I want two people to meet as relative equals. That's erotica, leave erotica where it is supposed to be.
I want relative equals who respect and care for each other, not some kind of power-fantasy. Anyway, where was I? Age difference. Oh, yeah.
So, Elio has been with quite a few girls, and he started fucking when he was I don't feel like Oliver is taking advantage of him at all in this book.
I don't feel like the love or affair or whatever between these two was skeevy at all in terms of feelings. Some of the sexual acts in here are Elio really wants to experience going to bed with a man.
He's been dreaming about this since he was 14, and he carefully chooses Oliver to be his first. I didn't feel at all like Oliver was a skeeze in any way.
This is not a gay novel. I think that bears repeating. This is not a novel about two gay men. It is a novel about two bisexual men.
I know bisexuals are always complaining about bisexual erasure and honestly usually I don't know what they are talking about, because I am straight and not really on point with modern bisexual topics, but here it is very clear.
Even I can see it. This is being lauded and embraced as a gay film and a gay book and a celebration of gay love etc. This isn't a bearding situation, either.
They both seek out women, enjoy sex with women, frequently fuck women, and love having sex with women. Elio particularly enjoys going down on women.
Not gay. And not just because this is Italy in the s, I want to make that clear. They both enjoy fucking women AND men. And it's not a "a gay man comes along and turns a straight man gay with his awesome penis" either.
I want to make that clear, as well. Elio has been attracted to men since he was fourteen. Even though he's fucked a bunch of women, he wants to experience fucking with a man.
Oliver is a good candidate for his first time. This isn't Oliver, a gay man coming along and seducing a straight younger man with alluring gay sex.
Both men are bisexual. This isn't a gay-for-you type of deal. A strong undertone of this book is the idea of fucking yourself. No, no, no. The idea of having sex with yourself.
It's very narcissist when you come down to it. I mean, I've heard this idea of calling someone by your own name in bed as 'romantic,' and it is true that this aspect of the story is painted as a very tender, loving, erotic thing between Oliver and Elio.
But in reality it is about the surreal quality of fucking another you. Of course you 'love' the other you, it is you. Let's have some examples.
My Star of David, his Star of David, our two necks like one, two cut Jewish men joined together from time immemorial. Perhaps the physical and the metaphorical meanings are clumsy ways of understanding what happens when two beings need, not just to be close together, but to become so totally ductile that each becomes the other.
To be who I am because of you. To be who he was because of me. To be in his mouth while he was in mine and no longer know whose it was, his cock or mine, that was in my mouth.
He was my secret conduit to myself - like a catalyst that allows us to become who we are, the foreign body, the pacer, the graft, the patch that sends all the right impulses, the steel pin that keeps a soldier's bone together, the other man's heart that makes us more us than we were before the transplant.
These are just two examples, but it's discussed 10 or 15 times in the book. Elio and Oliver frequently wear each other's clothes and underwear as a blatant reminder from the author of this 'clone fucking' idea.
And there were times when they were engaging in this call-me-by-your-name practice and I was just rolling my eyes so hard.
I came up to his ear just as he was about to enter the post office, and whispered, "Fuck me, Elio. The book can be jarring with it's bizarre sexual ideas.
The writing is so beautiful and you are lulled by it, only to be snapped out of it by some sex act that leaves you reeling. Some examples: - view spoiler [Elio goes into Oliver's room, smells and kisses his swimsuit all over, puts the swimsuit on, masturbates so that he cums on the suit, leaves it there for Oliver to find.
He splits it open with his cock and rubs it all over his cock, thinks about how much a peach looks like both a vagina and an anus two things that really turn him on and he ejaculates into the peach which he then elaborately compares to a rape victim in a quite disturbing passage and leaves it on his desk.
Later, Oliver comes into his room, notices the peach, asks about it, and then deliberately eats it in front of a blushing, crying Elio who is ecstatic.
Then Elio poops while Oliver 'massages' his belly and Oliver looks at Elio's poop. This is portrayed as 'closeness' and 'breaking down any barriers between them.
After finger-fucking Marzia, he wants to come home, ask Oliver to sniff his hand, and then have Oliver lick his fingers. This doesn't happen, it's just his sexual fantasy.
The author did a wonderful job of talking about Jewishness and the Jewish identity of both Oliver and Elio. I really liked it.
I felt like he wrote about it in a very clear and beautiful way that enhanced the story. I was a bit baffled and amused at Elio's continued insistence that Oliver would be extra-kind to him in bed because they were both Jewish, but everything was very nicely done.
You might get very frustrated reading this book, I know I did. If you remember being seventeen, you'll know what I'm talking about.
At least 50 or 60 percent of the book is simply Elio going Does he like me? Does he like me like me? Is he looking at me?

Timothy Celaman let's his presence be known with this roll, I appreciate every moment he was on screen, just memorizing.
The writing and direction was also fantastic, story was a little choppy but no problem with me. Jarrin R Super Reviewer.
Feb 19, Beautiful scenery but about thirty minutes too long. Hammer and Chalamet are good but it is Stuhlbarg who really shines Nice to see people on screen reading for enjoyment.
John C Super Reviewer. Feb 02, I am not sure why I enjoyed this film as much as I did. It doesn't communicate primarily through dialogue, the story is choppy, its heavy with the metaphors, and there are many scenes that seem to serve little to no purpose.
However, the way the characters convey emotions and communicate without saying a word is amazing, the aura of escapism is wonderfully portrayed by using beautiful shots and the soothing sounds of Sufjan Stevens, yet not overdone like some fairytale.
If this story were put in a vacuum it wouldn't interest me, but it makes you feel a certain way and takes you to a place that is pretty enjoyable.
Sanjay R Super Reviewer. Jan 25, Sun drenched and hazy like a dream to pass along the summertime, Call Me By Your Name is a quietly romantic and gorgeous film, full of aching melancholy and subtle storytelling.
It is a quiet and slow paced film, sometimes emotionally distancing, but entrancing and by film's end, wholly enrapturing. Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet give incredible performances, so natural and casual, as to appear completely authentic.
Michael Stuhlbarg gives another fantastic supporting performance and his late film monologue is stirring. Call Me By Your Name is not a big film in any sense.
It is a small, intimate little sliver of budding sexuality and summertime nostalgia and is unsentimental and non-judgmental in every way.

Doch das alles ist nur Fassade. Regisseur Luca Guardagnino hat sich Zeit genommen, um die Beziehung entstehen zu lassen. Das ist das eigentliche Meisterwerk.
Eine Szene, bei der nicht nur Elio fasziniert zuschaut. Und das war laut Hammer und Chalamet wohl auch so.
Armie Hammer und der unglaubliche Timothee Chalamet sind bis heute Freunde und man merkt, dass sie dieser Film und die Erfahrungen nicht loslassen.
Die Kaminszene nicht zu vergessen. Besonders Oliver merkt man an, dass er Angst vor der Beziehung hat, weil seine Eltern nicht so tolerant sind wie die von Elio.
Diese Gefahr, sich selbst so verletzlich zu zeigen, ist Armie Hammer eingegangen. Gut dass er es getan hat.
Timothee Chalamet ist sowieso ein Rohdiamant. Etwa Teils bei. Das Buch, das rein aus Elios Perspektive geschrieben ist, hab ich mir direkt danach bestellt.
Es ist ein Juwel. Noch nie hab ich einen Film gesehen, der so nah am Buch war. Translate review to English. After reading the star reviews I just felt I needed to add my opinion into this.
This is an extremely slow movie. A few of the low rated comments mentioned that the acting was bad. This is the best and most realistic performance I have ever seen since Kate and Leo on the Titanic.
And I promise that during the end it will break your heart. No matter your orientation. Watch the movie, be aware that it is slow and fall in love with it as much as I have.
Watch it, read the book and watch it again. It will all make sense. The skinny undeveloped body of Elio and the bigger built older Oliver perfectly contrasted and made the proceedings more realistic, they looked and acted like real people.
The gentle speed of the picture, the use of a single lens camera and the fact it was shot more or less in sequence allowed the intimacy between all the characters to grow.
Several things make this film quirky and at the same time memorable. The kissing is totally erotic, the sex is amazing because you don't see it, a few naked limbs and a strong imagination.
Finally the peach scene, and yes we all remember that, the juice running down his naked flesh and the final act, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one to buy a peach and try it out all the way!
As in real live the conversation lurches, there is silence. The atmosphere comes and goes, the tensions felt portrayed felt by the viewer.
I did see it on the big screen, well bigger screen and was impressed so I got the DVD and watched at home where it is even more impressive and intimate an experience.
There was so much in this film that reminded me of my early sexual gropings and attempts to come to terms with love. I'd never heard of this film and bought it on impulse.
I'm so glad that I did. Beautifully scripted, photographed and acted, a gay love story that's romantic and a little sad too. No steamy, full frontal sex scenes,it's just a nice story about a summer of love between two young men, one a little older than the other and the relationship that develops as the older boy joins the family in Italy to work with the father cataloguing archeological finds.
Though the passion between the two boys inevitably intensifies we know that this can only end in a parting and the finale, though sad, is one of the most skillfully handled parts of the story, especially the last scene between father and son.
