Considering the copious amounts of love I have for director Luca Guadagnino's two last filmic outputs, the exquisitely provocative A Bigger Splash and the elegant I Am Love, Call Me By Your Name already had major expectations to fulfill. Sure, enough this surpassed my hopes and then some.

This movie is a masterpiece; a wondrous, stunning, awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking. Set in the beautiful lush surrounding of a non-specified location in North Italy, a wealthy liberal Jewish family spend every summer in their idyllic classic Tuscan style villa. The family is Professor Perlman (Michael Stuhlbarg) his intellectual wife Annella (Amira Casar), along with their adorable 17-year-old son Elio (Timotheé Chalamet).

It's the summer of 1983 and the dashing post-graduate American student Oliver (Armie Hammer) comes to stay and apprentice alongside the professor. Elio becomes obsessed with Oliver and to his amazement, he soon realizes his infatuation is reciprocated.What follows is an intimate sweet summer fling of sexual discovery.

Chalamet displays such great depth of understanding for his role, it's almost as if he is not acting. His delicate mannerisms, specifically in the sex scenes appear to channel the all-consuming passion and intensity that his teenage hormones provide. It is incredibly captivating.
