Not your classic movie
Verified purchase
After reading the 1-2 star reviews I just felt I needed to add my opinion into this. And I will keep it as simple as I can write it without over/under selling it.

1. This is an extremely slow movie. This is because it doesn’t follow the classic movie rules where they meat, fall in love, have a fight, make up and a happy ending.

We are following these characters spending a summer together and that’s it. We watch them in scenes that maybe doesn’t have a point but that is just because we are an audience watching them.

2. A few of the low rated comments mentioned that the acting was bad. This is the best and most realistic performance I have ever seen since Kate and Leo on the Titanic. Both main characters are incredible and if you watch it a second/third/a million times you will notice the most subtle things that make this movie unbelievable!

3) Even though it might be a “gay” movie everyone can relate to having a first love. And I promise that during the end it will break your heart. No matter your orientation.

Watch the movie, be aware that it is slow and fall in love with it as much as I have. Watch it, read the book and watch it again. It will all make sense.

PANGS AND PAINS OF FIRST LOVE - SPOT ON!
Verified purchase
For a change the actors were not in the pretty boy/fantastic body mould, thank goodness. The skinny undeveloped body of Elio and the bigger built older Oliver perfectly contrasted and made the proceedings more realistic, they looked and acted like real people. The gentle speed of the picture, the use of a single lens camera and the fact it was shot more or less in sequence allowed the intimacy between all the characters to grow. Several things make this film quirky and at the same time memorable. The kissing is totally erotic, the sex is amazing because you don't see it, a few naked limbs and a strong imagination. Finally the peach scene, and yes we all remember that, the juice running down his naked flesh and the final act, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one to buy a peach and try it out all the way! As in real live the conversation lurches, there is silence. The atmosphere comes and goes, the tensions felt portrayed felt by the viewer. I did see it on the big screen, well bigger screen and was impressed so I got the DVD and watched at home where it is even more impressive and intimate an experience. There was so much in this film that reminded me of my early sexual gropings and attempts to come to terms with love.
This was not two pretty boys who spent time in the gym working before working it out in the hay fields movie (nice as they might be) but a true coming of age/realization film full of brilliant moments, most of it will remain somewhere in my brain always, from the peach sequence (and who hasn't gone right out and tried that) to the fathers last words. Brilliant

Beautifully made, slightly bittersweet, gay romance.
Verified purchase
I'd never heard of this film and bought it on impulse. I'm so glad that I did. Beautifully scripted, photographed and acted, a gay love story that's romantic and a little sad too. No steamy, full frontal sex scenes,it's just a nice story about a summer of love between two young men, one a little older than the other and the relationship that develops as the older boy joins the family in Italy to work with the father cataloguing archeological finds. Though the passion between the two boys inevitably intensifies we know that this can only end in a parting and the finale, though sad, is one of the most skillfully handled parts of the story, especially the last scene between father and son.

A beautifully directed movie - Beautifully acted! Loved it!
Verified purchase
This is a superb study of secret love and hidden desire. The two protagonists are Perfectly portrayed by the actors and the whole is truly believable, and memorable. I rented this movie, watched it one night, just had to watch again the next. To me this is a perfect film which reaches deep down into the heart. I could go on and on, but I hope you will rent or buy it. You will not be disappointed. I would give it 10 stars if I could!

Best film of all time.
Verified purchase
There comes a time when look back and decide what great films have been made. 'Call Me By Your Name' is everything in a masterful, majestic, beautiful, heartbreaking film with humorous dialogue from Elio. Bravo James Ivory on your BAFTA/Oscar win.

A great film!

After watching this in the cinema I have waited so long for this film to be released for purchase so I can spend a long summer in Italy with Oliver and Elio and a glass of wine whenever I wish!
