Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name ★★★★

Right now, there's sorrow, pain. Don't kill it and with it the joy you've felt. - Mr. Perlman

Call me by your name, never expected to be so emotional even reading all the signs beforehand. Not for a while have I seen nostalgia captured on screen quite like this. The sunshine and surroundings seem to drip off the screen, suggesting that maybe you've been here before.

Screenplay gold from James Ivory, overloaded in empathy with a love story so strong that transcends regardless of sexual orientation or background. The two leads chemistry is phenomenal that there is no doubting their relationship. In fact the whole film is so subtle that by the final 15 minutes I never even noticed the tears rolling down both cheeks.
