Italy back in The 80’s , a romance will blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father’s research assistant aver the summer.

First love , the warm, sunny skies, gentle breezes and charming, tree-lined roads of northern Italy in the summer. what more do you want; Well two beautiful women massaging my body while I drink wine, I know I am dreaming but trust me it is going to happen soon. Just a feeling I got. Guadagnino takes us to they wonderful place where he is patient in telling you the story and you must be also as well. Not an easy thing to do I was wondering where this was going then he hit me. It’s the summer of 1983, and there’s nothing to do but read, play piano, learn about art and pick apricot and peaches and drink wine. Dam! life was so simple back then.


17-year-old Elio (Timothee Chalamet) visiting his family’s summer home with his parents: his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), a professor of Greco-Roman culture, and his mother (Amira Casar), a translator and hostess. Elio is growing up fast he is 17 years old who  has an intellect of an adult. An American doctoral student named Oliver (Armie Hammer) arrives for the annual internship Elio’s father offers .  It seems that Oliver has everything and that Elio doesn’t ,that’s what the director want you to think. However the two are going to test even push each other though out the summer. They flirt, they try to one up each other on Literature, art and music. Elio how ever tries to romance a french girl on vacation there but thing are no going to go so well at first it is and then Olivier happens. I think Elio knew who he is but denied it to himself that is why he tried to romance this girl. The all film is shot beautifully well on location with some nice setting. There is a sweetness between the two as the story develop especially toward the end. Both actors here are well into their characters that goes double for the Franco-American actor chalamet, there is a fluidity between his languages from French, to Italian and english. A different kind of love story this time between two men. the most beautiful scene here is toward the end when Elio’s father talks to him. Even the ending  felled so perfect.
