Krzysztof Janowski says:

I would love to see 4 hours directors cut

Louis Wetzel says:

America has had ENOUGH of this Nambla backed horror of a film. These pathetic guys should be crying because this flick celebrates child assault. And YES, Armie made a horrific choice in this role. And his character is 24 my arse. Total love story??? GOD help us. The conservative gay community is outraged over this. NO comparison to Brokeback Mountain.Those characters were….ADULTS!!!!!!

Becky Hofheinz says:

I balled my eyes out during the ending; the father/son scene, the goodbye scene at the train station, and Timothee Chalamets' performance at the end!

LilyBlackwood says:

Guys! I understand you are obviously spoiling the movie but you just fucking spoiled the book, with no prior notice. I am waiting for my book to get here and quite frankly I am very disappointed that a cool movie review just freaking spoiled a MAJOR event from the book. VIEWERS BEWARE: BOOK SPOILERS TO THE END OF THE VIDEO!!

chaniqua smith says:

I like blue is the warmest color better.

DB Simmons says:

Call me by your name signifies the highest love. A love and admiration for the one you love so deeply that you wish you were them. That you love and admire everything about them that you will take their name in honor of them. In the hetero culture, I believe women do this when they take their husbands' last name in honor of their love. But there is no higher form of flattery then when Oliver desires to be called Elio because Elio is the kind of person he himself would like to be. Oliver loves him so much that he wants to be Elio and wants to feel what it’s like for Elio to call him his own name and share the essence that is Elio, his given name. " Call me you. I want and desire to feel what It's like to be you". A love so beautifully deep.

Louis Wetzel says:

So….this travesty of a film has sent the gay community back 50 years. And you,re celebrating it. News flash. ….Armie Hammer,s career is finiito. Two people falling in love?? No, it,s about underage assault. SHAME on hollywood…

ManuelPabloArnao says:

It's LITERALLY become my favorite movie of all time. It's sooooo beautiful. Loved the ending.

Chookas Chookas says:

I went to this movie knowing only that this was an older guy and younger guy falling in love in the 80’s. This is not my usual movie or story draw, but I thought “why not? I have time”
After the first screening, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I know there is much discussion and categorisation of Gay/Bi characters, but this was unimportant. I didn’t have the same story line, but what this movie succeeded in doing was to take me back to my 19 year old self in 1967, and my first romance with a married 28 year old guy in a small city here in New Zealand. When I left with my qualification and returned to my home town, I hooked up with #2, who left me after a year to go overseas. Subsequently I linked up emotionally with a few guys until I joined with my current beau of 40 years. This movie exposed and recalled so many of my feelings and situations even though my actual story is different. Elio’s emotional swings were my emotional swings from similar but not identical situations. I have still not recovered my emotional equilibrium after 7 viewings, augmented by numerous interviews with the 2 brilliant actors.
A great review – thank you.

haha says:

Great review!!

TheAwkwardMaître D'. says:

No disrespect but y'all are annoying me by discounting the whole bisexuality element in this movie, both Oliver and elio were attracted to both men and women same can be said about elio's father. Bisexuality does exisit.

nexttsar says:

I just didn't think Stuhlbarg was all that good, and I do think he has been excellent in other films, esp. A Serious Man. But he seemed mis-cast in this – he looked like a short bloated Robin Williams. I would have picked someone else. The speech scene was taken directly from the book – any actor could have done it. Timothee Chalamet is absolutely excellent!

buzzardbeatniks says:

I'm so envious of all these people who have already seen it, It's not opening in my town till Jan 19. WTF.

Ivan Agamez says:

That closing scene is one of the most amazing pieces of screen acting I've ever seen!
