CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17-year-old young man, spends his days in his family's 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).

No story line.
Can't help but wonder how many people would be writing "Perfection" if it was just a boring hetro couple?
Cinematography and scoring only redeeming features + old mans speech at the end.
Can't believe I just wasted 2.5hrs of my life.
