Linton Stephens (BBC Classical Fix) and Bertie from director duo “Bert and Bertie” return to Fixwatcher to review Linton’s choice Call Me by Your Name.
Call Me by Your Name is a 2017 coming of age romantic drama, directed by Luca Guadagnino with a screenplay by James (Merchant Ivory Productions) Ivory, based on André Aciman’s novel of the same name.
Set in northern Italy in the summer of 1983 it tells the story of the passionate but ultimately doomed romance between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and a 24-year-old visiting graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer).
The allure of Call Me By Your Name is undeniable, from the beautiful setting, the 80s nostalgic soundtrack, a moving performance by Chalamet and the all familiar joys and pain of the experience of your first love.
Call Me by Your Name isn’t without some controversy, the age gap between Elio and Oliver has been seen as problematic and in 2021 a series of allegations of abuse by Hammer makes watching in 2023 difficult.
Scores for recommendability for Call Me by Your Name were very high, only dropping a few across repeat and small screen gives a very impressive overall rating of 4.35.
