    Call Me By Your Name is a gorgeous-looking film, making the most of its Italian location cinematographically, and in line with the sensuality inherent in its subject matter. Set in 1983, the sexual relationship that develops between a 17-year-old (Timothée Chalamet) and a visiting grad student (Armie Hammer) is somewhat taboo, but the complex emotions wrought by the situation are sensitively and intelligently played and shot against the notion of Greco-Roman Antiquity (where such relationships were common). Symbolism in the film is subtle but appreciable, mostly concerned with the notion of forbidden fruit. The film does transcend its LGBTQ+ content, however, and I easily found myself connecting with many of the characters. Who hasn't experienced the complicated shades of love, whether unrequited, timidly hidden, or in the pressure cooker of a "stolen season"? Michael Stuhlbarg as Timothée's father nearly steals the show near the end, giving a surprisingly heartbreaking performance after mostly providing (excellent and natural) comic relief through most of the piece, but director Luca Guadagnino gives his young lead the final word, freezing you in your seat through the start of the closing credits. 2 years 7 months ago

    Such a beautifully executed film.
    I was pulled in during the very first minutes and after I was done watching, the film so mesmerizingly, lingered with me.
    Timothee's spontaneity and that exquisite, fresh acting talent, along with Elio's innocence and curiosity just did it for me. It was all about Elio for me. I just couldn't get enough of his character.
    The whole recipe felt just right.
    That beautiful soundtrack that generates this strange, even eerie calmness within oneself.
    The sensuality of the scenes, down to their tiniest details.
    The location that'll take you back to films like Nuovo Cinema Paradiso.
    The pace was perfect, I didn't at all find the film "slow moving" like some said.
    And lastly, the closing credits. The cherry on top.
    It must've helped that the film was shot in sequence, as well.
    I am IN LOVE with this film.
