    This movie showed me how to really feel what love is, and how much pressure it gave Eliot. The settings were perfect on spot for the scene as almost like they were made for it. I’ve read all these comments how they say it promotes pedophilia but this movie is based in Italy. Italy’s age dating restriction is 13 & under which means it’s okay to date when your above 14 & above, America’s rules don’t apply to every country. The society taught and gave us standards that we live up in America. When you go outside America, the rules that have been placed in America doesn’t always apply everywhere.
  • The age of concent in Italy is 17.

    This movie takes place in Italy. The age of concent in Italy is 17. So to say that this movie is about pedophelia is not factually correct. That being said the movie is ok.
  • Best movie ever

    This movie means so much to me, It shows love in such a passionate but subtle way but on the other hand it shows heartbreak, guilt and confusion. Elio is going through his last stages of his teenage life looking into adulthood and Oliver becomes his way of expressing how he feels. He feels a sense of comfort in Oliver, and when he leaves you get to see his heartbreak and his confusion as why life would let him go through such a good time to only end in him feeling such immense pain. You get to see the way Elio warms up to Oliver and start to not only consider him a friend, but someone he can confide in. I have watched lots and lots of movies but this one is definitely different. It makes you really feel the emotions of the characters but not by way of telling you, but in the films slow panning shots and more in depth shots of the characters faces and expressions to relay how they are feeling. The way that the color schemes are presented in certain scenes adds the emotion Elio & Oliver are feeling. This movie can be reflected to many aspects of life, wondering why we have such good times only to end in feeling sad, gloomy and in the case of this movie nostalgic of something you have never felt before. This movie is an eye opener into not only what a film can be but what emotions and feelings a movie can relay onto someone. I would 100% recommend this film to everyone, It is not something you want to miss out on.

    I saw this movie now quite a few times and it touched me every time. I lived the same story when I was 17 years old (many years ago) and felt the same way as Elio, never thought it was wrong or he was too old for me, it was all about those moments spent together and the chemistry we had. I know some people think that it is wrong but at the end it is about 2 people who know what they are doing and feeling, there is no victims or abuse here....only love.

    Just perfect. Such a special movie. Many great visuals. All the characters are so unique. There are scenes that warmed the core of my soul. Call Me By Your Name is an exceptionally heartwarming and tear jerking story. The sacred dynamic and experiences that the main characters had left me so incredibly happy for them. Their vulnerability triggers all of one’s empathy. Among my highest priorities is scheduling a day to watch Luca Guadagnino’s sequel as soon as it may or may not come out.
  • Disgusting

    However you want to spin this as “art”or a “masterpiece”. This absolutely immoral and disgusting to promote pedophilia in any way shape or form as a norm. There is nothing good about this film, this is not love but the perversion of love. God didn’t not make men to lay with men. Nor a man with a minor, truly man has done what’s right in their own eyes and will be judged by their sins.
