    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. 5 months 1 week ago

    Because of the slow pace of events, compared to Hollywood standards, the film might bore you. However, there is great character development in this film, which makes it worth sitting through it. Just wait for the winter. 6 months 1 week ago
