Not only that, Luca Guadagnino is one of the best movies of the year, but it is also one of the best movies of teenagers in love the most beautiful of recent times: when you pass by a sweet one, with an elegance and exquisite atmosphere, very hot mix of eroticism as Bernardo Bertolucci with the painting of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Call me by Your Name is a masterpiece of emotions and sensuality able to steal the senses of the viewer and drag them back in adolescence, in the summer of life.
Taken from the eponymous novel by the american writer André Aciman, the film is set in northern Italy (somewhere in the north of Italy, as it is didascalicamente explained in the first scene, with that font so much giallissimo as a youth, during the summer of 1983.
Helium Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) is a precocious seventeen-year-old american who lives in the villa of the XVII century, of family, passing the time to transcribe and play classical music, read, and flirt with his girlfriend Marzia
(Esther Garrel). Helium has a very close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent university professor specializing in the greco-roman culture, and his mother, Annella (Amira Casar), a translator: the young man is stimulated to continuous cultural and intellectual level, thanks to the sophisticated environment that surrounds it, full of cultural delights, and although speak and act in everything and for everything as an adult, the guy is especially innocent and immature in regard to the matters of the heart.
A day will come Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming american student of 24 years, the father of Elio offers to help him complete his doctoral thesis. And you will be right in the context of this environment beautiful and sunny that Elio and Oliver will discover the beauty of the birth of desire, in the course of a summer that will change to
always their lives.
Call me by Your Name is a universal and all-encompassing love and sentiment, a story of coming-of-age journey with beautiful moments of cinema and the two protagonists, of which it is impossible not to fall in love: will long remember the frailty and uncertainty of Helium (the first final plan is overwhelming), as well as the charming smile of a Armie Hammer ever so nice (to Earn, for as the part, turns it into a Greek god dazzling and immortal, a figure of flesh carved in the same way the works of art that is so passionate about the character of Michael Stuhlbarg), but in general it is difficult to forget a film so innocently pushed, where each sequence of eroticism is accompanied in equal measure by the desire to discover, to explore, oneself and others) and shyness, mystery, and temptation.
Closing his trilogy on the desire that began with I Am Love, and " A Bigger Splash, Guadagnino explores the idyll of youth, and the multitudes of be (be and/or feel different, complex, unique), the attraction and the friendship, the relationship between parents and children (Timothée Chalamet, and Michael Stuhlbarg will be the protagonists of what, in a few year will be remembered as one of the scenes the son/the father, the most beautiful in the history of cinema).
It's a film with music – the ubiquitous but very light, that accompanies us throughout the film as the whisper of the wind or the beat of the heart – smiles and veiled, expectations and anxieties. It's a film with extremely liquid, where the water in particular plays a very important role, and where everything that is important happens in the vicinity of showers and gocciolii (probably the sound together more relaxing and exciting, which exists in nature).
It is also and above all a film about the art: sculptural, literary, musical, and obviously that of love, that the ars amandi of the error of memory which concerns us all as human beings, regardless of sex (or sexes) that we attract. Call me With Your Name, is not homosexual love is a source of pride, not boasted of its broad-minded, only for show, but uses the cinematic language (speaking it in an exemplary way: if the arrival of an Oscar for the director born in palermo, no one would be shocked, rather) to create empathy between audience and characters to a level of psychological, emotional, almost spiritual.
Reaches the goal, of course. This is a masterpiece.
