Director: Luca Guadagnino
The debt to pleasure is deferred in exquisite style for this ravishingly beautiful movie set in Northern Italy in the early 80s: a coming-of-age love story between a precocious teenage boy and a slightly older man. Elio, a teenager, develops feelings for Oliver, his father’s temporary assistant. Although their relationship is temporary, Elio realises his sexual orientation and tries to come to terms with their summer romance, saturated with poetic languor and a deeply sophisticated sensuality.
I personally really enjoyed Call Me By Your Name as the general aesthetic of the movie is truly amazing. With the combination of the beautiful scenery featured in the film it truly captivates an authentic feel for Italy and the summer romance which blossoms throughout the movie. The soundtrack especially added to the movie due to the fact that the songs featured all are fitting of the plot and help to give across such a picturesque view of Italy.
Call Me By Your Name is currently available on Netflix and was rated 15 by the BBFC.
