Directed by Luca Guadagnino and based on André Aciman‘s 2007 novel of the same name, Call Me By Your Name is set in 1980s Italy where a romance blossoms between a seventeen-year-old student (Timothée Chalamet) and the older man (Armie Hammer) hired as his father’s research assistant.
The film is the final installment in Guadagnino’s Desire trilogy after I Am Love (2009) and A Bigger Splash (2015).
Loved, loved, loved this. I think I will be watching it on repeat for the foreseeable future.
It’s taken me a good while to enjoy Armie Hammer’s performances, but after The Man From UNCLE I was quickly convinced otherwise. And now this! I am a new fan.
And Timothée Chalamet! I can’t wait to see more from him (although with maybe fewer peaches involved).
This is such a beautiful and romantic story. I especially love the support of Elio’s family, which I think really makes this to feel so delicate. I could watch the closing scene of Elio staring into the fire forever. Absolutely beautiful!
