Call Me by Your Name

A film by Luca Guadagnino

Back
North of Italy, Summer 1983.

Elio Perlman, a 17-year-old spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa lazily listening to music and flirting with his friend Marzia. One day an American 24-year-old arrives to help Elio’s father in his academic activities. Oliver is charming and, like Elio, has Jewish roots; he is also young, self-confident and good-looking. At first Elio is somewhat cold and distant but as the short summer progresses, the pair’s mutual attraction grows more intense.

Director's statement

I like to think that Call Me By Your Name closes a trilogy of films on desire, together with I am Love and A Bigger Splash. Where in the former ones desire was driving to possession, regret, contempt, need for a liberation, in Call Me By Your Name we wanted to explore an idyll of youth. Elio, Oliver and Marzia are entangled in the beautiful confusion of what once Truman Capote described when he said that “love, having no geography, knows no boundaries.” Call Me By Your Name is also my homage to the fathers of my life: my own father, and my cinematic ones: Renoir, Rivette, Rohmer, Bertolucci…
