With beautiful scenery, a star-making performance by Chalamet, and a moving story that emphasizes sexual awakening, "Call Me by Yoyr Name" broke my heart more than any movie released in 2017.

An extremely elegant film that beautifully depicts the first love of a precocious young man. Timothee Chalamet is hypnotic in the lead as he injects hundreds of lively mannerisms and tics into this role. He has surely cemented his status as a sex symbol for years to comes. Unfortunately, though Armie Hammer is also charming as the love interest, he doesn't quite convince as a man in his early twenties, which makes the romance seem a bit more predatory than it actually is. Still, the chemistry shared between the two is undeniable, and that is a rare thing from a romance film these days.

James Ivory beautifully adapted Andre Acimans novel, and gave it the heart, tension, heartbreak, and caring touch it deserved.

"Nature has cunning ways of finding our weakest spot."
There is no doubt how incredibly beautiful "Call Me By Your Name" is. Putting aside your age and sexuality, the film offers more than romance. It's not sad or tragic, but a peaceful one. It's all about falling in love. What's been said by many will be repeated here, so none of this is gonna be new to you, because it's all true.
Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, and newcomer Timothée Chalamet all deliver terrific performances. Not a weak or unconvincing actor in sight. All of them were perfectly cast in the roles and there was no shred of doubt during the emotional parts. Especially Stuhlbarg monologue towards the end is as moving as anything I have ever seen.
