Berlinale: ‘Call Me by Your Name’ Was a ‘Universal Effort’

13 February 2017 9:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Call Me by Your Name,” Luca Guadagnino’s coming of age drama that wowed audiences at Sundance, won wide praise from Berlinale journos and film critics following its Panorama Special screening on Monday at the Berlin Film Festival.

Based on the novel by André Aciman, the story chronicles the love affair between Italian-American Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and his father’s new American assistant, Oliver, played by Armie Hammer.

Speaking at a press conference, Guadagnino described the work as a “film for families. I like to think it’s a film for the transmission of knowledge and hope that people of different generations comet to see the film together.”

Hammer, who also stars in Stanley Tucci’s Berlinale competition entry “Final Portrait,” said he could “certainly relate to how Luca was able to execute human desire, craving – this very  human emotion, between these two characters. These are primal emotions of desire that people feel. »

"The Reader Collaborates with the Author in Every Book": Some Words About Straub-Huillet

7 February 2017 7:48 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I'm drawn to Straub-Huillet’s usage of direct quotations rather than adapting or interpreting original material for a film. To me this is, among other things, a very straightforward and concrete way of highlighting that people are much less original than they are often assumed to be. (I think that Danièle Huillet once said this, but she was certainly not the first one.) It might be worth being reminded of this, especially today, in a time where we see and seek constant innovation and renewal everywhere while nothing really changes at the core. But for Straub-Huillet, quotation is also about something else. Every film of theirs is a documentation of their loving relationship to a preexisting text, artwork, or artist. The films are more genuinely about the work of the other and less about the couple's so-called vision. Quotation, to Straub-Huillet, is an act of respect, one »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Call Me by Your Name’

23 January 2017 12:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As numerous are the ways in which Luca Guadagnino’s latest (and most personal) film, “Call Me by Your Name,” advances the canon of gay cinema, none impresses more than the fact that it’s not necessarily a gay movie at all. Rather, the “I Am Love” director’s ravishingly sensual new film — adapted from André Aciman’s equally vivid, 1983-set coming-out/coming-of-age novel — is above all a story of first love, one that transcends the same-sex dynamic of its central couple, much as “Moonlight” so recently did.

Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics shortly before its Sundance premiere, this Proustian account of an Italo-American 17-year-old’s transformative summer may not be as commercial as that film, but it ought to be a word-of-mouth art-house hit all the same — especially when talk turns to what teenage Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and American summer guest Oliver (Armie Hammer) do with a ripe peach. »
