Today Call me by your name by Luca Guadagnino at the Berlinale
Today will be screened in the Panorama section at the 67th edition of the Berlinale, the Berlin Film Festival, the film by Luca Guadagnino Call me by your name.
The film was premiered on January 22 at the Sundance Film Festival 2017 meeting with great public and critical success.
The film is loosely based on the novel Call me with your name by André Aciman. Scripted by the same director with James Ivory and Walter Fasano, with the stunning photography of Sayombhu Mukdeeprom.
It’s the hot, sun-drenched summer of 1983 and Elio is at his parents’ country seat in northern Italy. The 17-year-old idles away the time listening to music, reading books and swimming until one day his father’s new American assistant arrives at their large villa. 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 towards the young man but before long the two begin going out together on excursions. Elio begins to make tentative overtures towards Oliver that become increasingly intimate – even if, as Oliver says, ‘one can’t talk about such things’. As the short summer progresses, the pair’s mutual attraction grows more intense.
The film's characters are Elio and Oliver, played by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. Says Luca Guadagnino "They are the focus of the film. The other characters perform the function of the choir "
