LmnO @ Reviews: Call Me By Your Name

Set in 1980’s North Italy, Call Me By Your Name is a coming of age tale about a 17 year old musician (Timothée Chalamet) who develops romantic feelings for his father’s houseguest (Armie Hammer). The two spend the summer exploring their taboo attraction.

Highlights:
-Shots: A lot of the shots were set up beautifully. North Italy really shines in this film. 

-Themes: If you can catch them, the symbolism and foreshadowing throughout the film brings you closer to the story. 

Lowlights:
-Coming of Age all over the place: even though done tastefully, the exploration of the couples’ sensuality, after a while, felt frivolous. I mean, the main character had an “American Pie” moment. 

-Uneventfulness: Without giving up any spoils, I’ll just say that this is a 132 min film that could’ve been knocked out in 90. Some parts were repetitive and the dramatic elements weren’t highlighted enough. 

Runtime 132, R, Drama, Romance

Overall:
