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).

BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT THAT SENSATIONAL
16 November 2018 | by kylerafaSee all my reviews

The film is just so beautiful to watch. No evil characters, no tragedy, just a simple love story. It tells us about what is love un all its ways: love of our family, of our country, of our religion, of our Friends, and of our soulmates!
