Call Me By Your Name is extraordinarily beautiful cinematically, technically and artistically. All performances are exceptional. A movie that broke my heart and healed me at the same time. Beautifully crafted by the director Luca Guadagnino.
Timothée Chalamet’s acting brought the character Elio vivid and alive. Timothée’s performance in this movie deserves to be ranked among the top performance of the year. “Call Me By Your Name” is elevated above the typical coming-of-age romance story because it transcends the tropes with grace and dignity without short-changing the emotional roller-coaster of first-discovered passion.
Suprised how moved i was by this movie. It is not going to be for everyone – slow and arty, with non gays squirming during sensual scenes.
Lastly, Michael Stuhlbarg’s final monologue has brought me (and the rest of the audience) to the emotional climax. His every word, which was taken straightly from the book, has touched me and fulfilled a part of my life where I was never able to make peace with. This is, in my opinion, the most memorable movie of year. Watch again The last 10 minutes of the movie were so powerful with the scene of the father and son. The best scene i have ever seen, so endearing and heart felt.
Big noisy clap to the actors and Luca for this astonishing job! I strongly recommend this film to anyone who has been traveled down Love’s pot-holed and crooked path yet has emerged a mile down the road the better for it, despite the tolls levied.
