Call Me by Your Name (2017)
Amira Casar: Annella Perlman
Annella Perlman : [Reading from The Heptaméron] A handsome young knight is madly in love with a princess, and she too is in love with him, though she seems not to be entirely aware of it. Despite the friendship that blossoms between them, or perhaps because of that very friendship, the young knight finds himself so humbled and speechless that he is totally unable to bring up the subject of his love. Until one day he asks the princess point-blank: Is it better to speak or to die?
Elio : I'll never have the courage to ask a question like that.
Mr. Perlman : I doubt that. Hey, Elly-Belly. You do know that you can always talk to us?
Art Historian 2 : So we got to the government of Bettino Craxi...
Art Historian 1 : Because we don't do anything but talk, talk, talk.
Art Historian 2 : Let me talk. We have five parties that do nothing but fight.
Art Historian 1 : Smoke and shut up. Let them speak, him, her.
[pointing to Sam and Annella]
Art Historian 1 : I'd like to know what they think too.
Art Historian 2 : Annella, what do you think? A five-party government!
Annella Perlman : Darling, I think it's an historic compromise...
Art Historian 1 : Don't say that. Compromises are tragic. You've changed since you inherited this place.
Art Historian 2 : What's that got to do with it?
Annella Perlman : What are you saying? You're mad, darling.
Art Historian 2 : You asshole. She's right.
Art Historian 1 : [to Sam] And you don't say anything to her. Say something! You're resigned.
Art Historian 2 : Why don't we talk about the death of Buñuel? Buñuel was a genius.
Art Historian 2 : You know him?
Art Historian 1 : Cinema isn't the answer.
Art Historian 2 : Cinema is a mirror of reality and it's a filter.
Art Historian 1 : They broadcast The Phantom of Liberty with constant interr...
Art Historian 2 : [interrupting] Everyone loves Buñuel!
Art Historian 1 : [Pointing to Oliver] Let's hear his opinion.
Art Historian 2 : He doesn't know anything about Italy!
Art Historian 1 : [to Oliver] Say something. Give us your impression.
Art Historian 2 : Do you have an impression?
Annella Perlman : Darling, he's American.
Art Historian 1 : That doesn't mean he's stupid!
