CALL ME BY YOUR NAME (2017)



Directed By: Luca Guadagnino 
Written By: James Ivory 
Based On The Book Written By: Andre Aciman 
Cinematography By: Sayombhu Mukdeeprom 
Editor: Walter Fasano 


Cast: Timothee Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Esther Garrel, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar 


In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape. I am not the biggest fan of director Luca Guadagnino as it is obvious he has talent but I have never exactly been a fan of his previous films. Visually lucious but the stories and plots left a lot to be desired. Here he seems to have found the right material because here he and his style definitely come through loud and clear.
