Movie – Luca Guadagnino’s new movie, Call Me By Your Name, has been at the centre of many people’s conversations and has already won many awards, including Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, was ranked 3rd Best Film of the year and was also nominated for many more awards and prizes. The film was adapted from the novel with the same name written by André Aciman, who tells both a coming of age and a coming out story. The two main actors, Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, create together on screen an unforgettable chemistry between 17 year old Elio and 24 year post-doctorant student, Oliver.
The film reflects a journey of self discovery and unashamed skin-to-skin contact with one another. The title of the novel reflects their relationship throughout the narrative, one of invitation and of elegy. Set in Italy in the 1980s, the novel not only depicts a truly honest encounter, but also Jewish traditions, art, literature, archaeology and languages. Director Luca Guadagnino, decided to combine three beautiful and poetic languages, including Italian, French and English throughout the movie. The characters form a multicultural blend and chose their words carefully in the language that helps them represent their feelings the most accurately. The screening of Call Me By Your Name will take place at the cinema located at the University of Montreal on Tuesday February 20th at 4:45 pm and at 8:00pm as well as on Wednesday February 21st at the same times.
