Call Me by Your Name is a 2017 romantic coming-of-age drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by James Ivory, based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman. It is the third and final installment in Guadagnino’s Desire trilogy, following I Am Love (2009) and A Bigger Splash (2015). Set in Northern Italy in 1983, Call Me by Your Name chronicles the romantic relationship between Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a 17-year-old living in Italy, and his father’s American assistant, Oliver (Armie Hammer). The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel, and Victoire Du Bois.

Call Me by Your Name had been in development since 2007, when producers Peter Spears and Howard Rosenman optioned the screen rights to Aciman’s novel. Ivory had been set to co-direct the film but ended up writing the script and producing. Guadagnino, who came on board as a location consultant, became the sole director, as well as producer, in 2016. The film was financed by several international companies, and principal photography took place in Crema, Italy in May and June of 2016. Cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom shot the film on 35-mm film.

Before its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2017, Call Me by Your Name was picked up for distribution by Sony Pictures Classics. It was released in the United Kingdom on October 27, 2017, and in the United States on November 24, 2017. The film received unanimous acclaim, with particular praise given to its direction, screenplay, music, and performances, and was chosen by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute as one of their top 10 films of the year. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, it was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Actor – Drama for Chalamet, and Best Supporting Actor for Hammer. At the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Chalamet was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.

Just subscribed on the basis that you articulated my exact feelings on this movie. Very rare thing to come along. Sorta makes you relieve it like it was your story…and in some sense it is all of our stories. In the words of Elio’s father: “But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything?..what a waste.”

Tom Dwyer says:

Great review. May I recommend you read the book. The book is incredible. I have read it 3 times now, as well as seen the movie. The book will explain a few of the background highlights to the events in the movie. Spoiler alert: Oliver actually eats the peach in the book. Plus the story does not end with the announcement of Oliver's wedding.

I cant live without this film in my life. I cried so much and wherever i am i cant get the visions of Gideon song out of my thoughts. love! love! love! this film. Has emotionally wrecked me.

Ryan Chen says:

Fantastic review!

John Do says:

Armie Hammer is from Texas, Timothée Chalamet is from NYC, both are half Jewish in real life who play characters of Jews in the movie. The actor who played the father is Michael Stuhlbarg who is American Jew too. And finally the writer of the book, André Aciman is an Italian/American Jew.
p.s. Hanukkah party and not Christmas

Italian director good movie

Brendan Miggins says:

I absolutely love your review of CMBYN and am in complete in agreement. I can't get this movie out of my head.

(Spoiler) The "Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio" scene that underscores their pact of intimacy, I am in you and you are in me, and the 3+minute close-up on Elio's faces processing his heartbreak just devasted me.

Remy Azhary Yosef says:

John Newmark says:
