Storyline

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17-year-old young man, spends his days in his family's 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio's sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.

Trivia

Both the source novel and the original screenplay included much more explicit sex scenes (both gay and straight encounters) and full-frontal nudity but Luca Guadagnino excised several moments from the finished film unless they felt organic to the plot and themes of the film as he did not want any to feel gratuitous.

Quotes

Mr. Perlman: We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to make yourself feel nothing so as not to feel anything - what a waste!

BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT THAT SENSATIONAL
16 November 2018 | by kylerafaSee all my reviews

The film is just so beautiful to watch. No evil characters, no tragedy, just a simple love story. It tells us about what is love un all its ways: love of our family, of our country, of our religion, of our Friends, and of our soulmates!
