Call Me By Your Name – Directed by Luca Guadagnino It’s a bold statement echoed by its’ fans; this film truly is one of the most beautiful films ever made. Based on the novel written by Andre Aciman, Call Me By Your Name was adapted for the big screen by James Ivory and directed by the incredible Luca Guadagnino. It is ultimately a sexual awakening, coming of age story set in the summer of ’83, taking place in a tiny Northern Italian village, Guadagnino’s hometown of Crema. It explores the visceral longing of first love between it’s characters Oliver and Elio, and manages to escape all of it’s genre trappings in the portrayal of a deep connection between two lovers. Shot on 35mm film, Guadagnino draws inspiration from his own teenage experiences with love to deliver a ravishment of the senses, in this tenderly relatable story. The entire film is the epitome of sensuality, exciting the deep desire of first love, in exquisite simplicity. The fact that it is a ‘gay’ film feels to be irrelevant in this beautifully human story, demonstrating that one does not have to identity as LGBT, to be entirely immersed and mesmerised by the films sophisticated sensuality. Amongst all of this, it manages to deliver, undeniably, one of the most astonishing film monologues in modern cinema. Partnered with an exceptional soundtrack, the film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (Chalamet), and Best Original Song, winning the title of Best Original Screenplay at the 90th Academy Awards. An erotic triumph, Luca Guadagnino adds another stunning, desire-laden film to his illustrious career.
